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.
Individual classes are booked as scheduling permits.
Fundamentals do not require any previous experience. You will be taught everything you need as a foundation for a career in Permanent Cosmetics.
The course is comprised of 130 hours of instruction and practice including hands on practice modules and live models. Although it is not required, you are strongly urged to come to my clinic to observe procedures as often as possible-this is available to you for up to one year after training, however phone and email support is ongoing.
All materials, tools, and equipment is provided to you including text books, manuals and a 1 year membership in the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals association.
