Questions you need to ask before signing up for a beauty academy or training:
How long have they been in the industry and how many clients have they worked on?
With each client that an artist works on they are learning more and more every time and gaining not only a better understanding of the skin, but they also encounter a wider variety of skin types therefore giving them more in-depth experience.
How many people have they taught?
In addition to seeing how many clients they have preformed the procedure on, it is also important to see how many trainings they have given in the past to show that they are not only experienced in what they are teaching but also how they are teaching it.
Do they have a gallery with 2+ years of experience?
Another important factor when looking for an instructor is that they have a gallery that is not only plentiful, but that they have one that demonstrates they have been doing this for multiple years. Just because and instructor shows that they have worked on many clients, does not mean they are not brand new to preforming this procedure.
Do they have a successful business?
One easy way to tell the quality of a training is to look at the instructors business as a whole. Does every aspect of their business thrive? Ultimately, you are looking for a trainer to teach you a skill that is going to further and better your own business, so someone who’s business outside of the training is not thriving should not be teaching you how to grow yours!
Who did they learn from and when?
You are paying money to be certified for this new beauty skill so do not be shy about asking for the trainers background! To ensure that an instructor is not giving out certifications without having the proper training background themselves, don’t be shy about asking for their credentials and when they were trained and received a certificate themselves. This is also a quick way to see how long they themselves have been practicing this procedure for.
Are they trying to make a quick buck? Or are they the best of the best?
Signing up for a training without doing your background research is dangerous because unfortunately there are many inexperienced people out there who are offering trainings not because they want to share their experienced passion but instead because they are looking to make a quick buck! Making sure you ask all of these questions before signing up for a course is a good way to weed out those who are only in it for the money.
Do you admire their work?
Lastly, it is important to admire the work of the person you are learning from. Do your research, look at all of the instructors past work, and if you want to be giving your clients the beautiful results that they give theirs, then thats a good sign that they are the instructor you want to be learning from!
