The Advanced Loctician Certificate Course is the most comprehensive and professional course on how to be a Natural Dread Loctician available.
It is a mega bundle course containing all 3 levels of the Natural Loctician Certificate series. You will get the following courses in this bundle -
- Natural Loctician Certificate Course Level 1 - which teaches you the Divine Hand & Hook artisan crochet method of dreadlocking (this is the highest quality dread method available) for all natural dread creation, maintenance and how to start your own dreadlock service biz with an ethos of high customer service.
- Natural Loctician Certificate Level 2 - which teaches you how to add a seamless high quality dreadlock extensions and wraps service to your biz, and
- Natural Loctician Certificate Level 3 - which teaches you how to tackle difficult dreadlock maintenance issues.
Each level builds on the skills of the previous level and the first 2 levels have assessments which allow you to get direct feedback from Em on your application of the dreadlocking technique, your results & how you work (body ergonomics & safety). You'll gain a Natural Loctician Certificate after successful completion of Level 1 and an Advanced Loctician Certificate and digital badges after successful completion of Level 2. Level 3 is not assessed.
This level of feedback & support enables you to improve on every level of importance, to give you full confidence that when you graduate you are:
*Creating neat, tight dreads of a high quality.
*Working in a way that is safe for your client & sustainable for yourself,
*Offering the best client service experience,
*Going to gain speed to end up being a fast loctician, who doesn't compromise on quality (like many out there)
It is this assessment and certification process that sets you apart from the average Loctician or Dreadlock Artist out there and enables you to offer the best service at a good price.
Such an ethos can help you to create a reputable dreadlock service & gives you every chance of success to build a small business on the side of a current job or parenting that allows you earn some extra cash OR you have the opportunity to do this as your main 'job' and make a full time wage in a part time working week!
Your trainer has accomplished a $1000 in 3 day week for many years (from 2010 to 2020). So if you have other responsibilities, you can choose to work certain weeks of the year, or crank it up & work all year to earn $50k. You can also choose to work more days and earn as much as $100k a year, if that is what you want.
The end results are up to you, however unlike many other trainings out there, you will not be left needing to work things out by yourself after you complete the course. Every detail of operating your dread biz is included (except marketing - as that's a whole other course - but some tips are given in 6 months of support emails you will receive after graduation).

Frequently Asked Questions
Em has been working with dreadlocks since she got her first dreadlocks in Thailand in the year 2000. She taught herself how to do her own dread maintenance using a small crochet hook and quickly she began to get maintenance requests from other travelers who were amazed that no wax or rolling was involved. Because back then - nobody outside of Bangkok knew about the crochet method of doing instantly permanent dread work! It was all about backcomb, roll, twist, rip & roll or wax wax wax!
Em travelled the world over a continuous 6 year period creating & maintaining dreads for people in UK, Italy, Holland, Spain, Brazil and on her return to Australia in 2006 she discovered that there were no dreadlock services utilising the crochet hook method in existance. This was when she turned her travel hobby biz turned into a true part time business and Divine Dreadlocks was born.
Through word of mouth and rave reviews her reputation grew to an international standing which enabled her to be booked out 6 months in advance. This allowed her to stop working as a high school teacher (design & technology) and to earn a decent wage in a 3 day working week, being at home as her babies were born and grew to school age.
Due to requests to teach others her skills and trade, she utilised her professional teaching knowledge to create a series of dreadlocking courses to help others learn how to do dreadlocks properly.
The Natural Dread Loctician Course series is aimed at empowering others to have all the skills and knowledge necessary to set up their own "lifestyle businesses" from home, studio or hair salon offering a high quality dreadlock service.
She wishes to empower as many people as possible to work in ways that allow them to:
1) Be their own boss,
2) Feel the freedom of choosing their own work days and hours,
3) Earn good money from home (up to $70/hr)
4) And gain financial stability or abundance with children.
Feel free to connect via email if you have any questions about her offerings!
