Your education is the first big decision of your career. A good education is not cheap. You want to be sure you are investing your money wisely and that your course will properly prepare you for a career as a lash or brow technician.
Here are some things for you to consider before investing in training:
A training manual can vary from 25 pages to 150 pages. Ask detailed questions about the material provided and be sure you have chosen the most comprehensive option. There is so much that needs to be learned. Far more than just the basic technique.
Don’t let location be your deciding factors.
Sometimes it is worth it to travel for your course. If the best option is a plane ride away - make sure your passport is up to date! Why settle for a subpar program? Choosing which program to invest in, is one of the most important decisions you’ll make.
(The other most important decision will be which product line to use).
What Support Is Available?
How will you be supported by your trainer after certification? Your learning process will continue long after your two day course. You will need somewhere to go for answers for several weeks after graduating, no matter how comprehensive the program was. Does your trainer offer mentorship to graduates? Or perhaps the school has online access to tutorials and information for their students.
How much experience does your trainer have?
Is the training program accredited?
Is the school insured?
How many students will there be per instructor?
How many hours of hands-on training are included?
Does your kit included everything you need to get started?
In the end, the only person who can decide what training program is best for you, is you! We wish you luck on your journey as a lash artist!
