Please be aware that not all states or counties require formal fundamental training or licensing, however those that do require a minimum of 100 basic hours and most insurance companies also require a basic fundamental course of 100 or more hours. 
Microblading/Microstroking IS in fact tattooing and therefore practitioners are required to have tattoo license, tattoo permits for their business and tattoo insurance.  2-3 day microblading courses are advanced training and should not be taken without a basic fundamental course.  Please consider this before being sold a course like this, as your state/county may prohibit you from practicing this technique and you may not be able to find an insurance company to insure you without basic fundamentals.
