We have become familiar with a wide range of the instructional
programs offered and the styles of teaching. The sad truth is
that this field is "ripe with hype" where instruction

have heard it all form students and those seeking to be retrained:
1) Traveling "roadshow" schools. Those outfits
that run ads in a city leading up to their visit were they give
"convention style" instruction to a large crowd of unwary
souls who clamor for more individual attention and never really
get any, going home uneducated with a stack of notes and a completion
2) The "Nurse, Doctor M.D. school" The schools
that are run by medical professionals whose websites show a long
list of credentials and people dressed for surgery. When in reality
you spend 40 to 50 hours in a classroom talking to other students
while the instructor talks about their life experience for half
the time with little patience for students or understanding of
aesthetics. It is also easy for those seeking education to be
deceived by teachers who have medical affiliation. Do not allow
anyone to tell you that permanent cosmetics has any thing to do
with nursing. This is ludicrous suggestion and misrepresentation.
You will not be monitoring vital signs, changing bed pans, administering
medication etc. You will be performing cosmetic procedures. We
have trained many nurses but surprisingly we have noticed that
many of them seem to have developed very poor habits were sterility
and hygiene are concerned. While others readily accept our strict
standards in those areas. The truth is you don't need to be
an artist or a nurse to learn this profession. But of the two
the artist will tend to fall into it more naturally.
3) "Those who cant do, teach" Not always but
often true! Get a feel for the individual who will be instructing
you. If they have "real" photos or video of their work
you will get a better idea of the quality of what you will be
