Training for Beginners

Beginners training course: $5,000.00 paid prior to start of course. Once tuition is paid, you will receive a study guide to help prepare you for the theory portion. Combined hours of at-home study and training class hours will total 100 hours.

Once all completed & passed, you will be the owner of the machine on which you trained - our gift to you and you may legally practice permanent cosmetics after complying with and inspected by your state and local government.

You will also receive a Sealed Signed Certificate of completion which is recognized by AAM (American Academy of Micropigmentation) as well as the SPCP (Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals).

 

Our training course is designed to introduce beginners to the fundamentals of permanent Make-up. It is formulated to guide the student through learning the ins and outs of the business. The course requires that each student have at least 100 hours training (including 20 hours of home studies.  some studies will be assigned by the instructor during training). Our beginning class features lectures, live demonstrations, by the instructor, hands on practice with several different textures and materials, as well as human skin. A review class is given to insure the student will pass the written exam. One-on-one procedures are performed by the student on live models (instructor is present throughout the entire hands-on training).
On your own: at home study
IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT ALL STUDENTS PURCHASE
