Choosing The Right 132 Hour Training Program

Our course covers all the areas and hours required by law and is approved by the Colorado Division of Private Occupational School Board.

Colorado only gives schools a broad outline of the required subject matters and required hours as follows….

1. Sanitation, Sterilization and Safety: 12 Hours
2. Skin Analysis: 8 Hours
3. Equipment and Supplies: 8 Hours
4. Color Theory and Effects: 32 Hours
5. Client Consultation: 8 Hours
6. Application of Pigment: 64 Hours

Beyond those guidelines schools are mostly free to design the 132 Hour course as they see fit. As a result, the who, what and how in each program will vary widely from school to school, even though all students end up with the same “132 Hour Certificate”.

The trainings, certifications and skill level of instructors will vary.  Colorado does not mandate any particular PMU techniques to be taught, so for instance, some schools will include microblading training and others do not. This allows our training to include the most current cutting edge techniques, equipment, pigments etc. from around the world. There are no old school “sharpie” eyebrow techniques taught in our program. Permanent Makeup has advanced tremendously in the past few years and continues at a fast pace.

At Accent Beauty Academy we feel it is vital to your future success as a PMU artist to learn all four of the fundamental techniques. Therefore, we teach*:

  1. Microblading / Hair Strokes
  2. Ombre / Powdered Eyebrows (good for almost every skin type)
  3. Lash Line Enhancement Eyeliner
  4. Full Lip Color / Lip Blush Color

Microblading is the number one requested permanent cosmetic procedure and you will generally need this skill to get your phone to ring and grow a robust permanent makeup practice.

Choosing the right PMU program is a personal decision and many factors will go into your final choice such as, class start dates, schedules, times and cost etc. At Accent Beauty Academy I believe we have put together a top program. Who and where you train with will ultimately have a major impact on your future success as a PMU artist.

Permanent makeup is a high level skill, that when done well can be life changing for the artist and their clients. Accent Beauty Academy’s chief instructor, Alesya is a highly trained and skilled permanent makeup artist and instructor. I encourage you review her many credentials here. With multiple, internationally recognized and respected master training certifications, over 90  5 Star student reviews and over 500 5 Star client reviews. We strongly recommend you look closely at the personal client work and student work done by the PMU instructor. Take the time to understand what quality PMU work really is and looks like. You can see hundreds of real client and student photos at Instagram.com/AccentBeautyAcademy

The following are the details of our 132 Hour Fundamentals of Permanent Makeup course. After successfully completing the training you will be legally permitted to perform permanent makeup in Colorado and should be able to obtain insurance coverage.

*PMU artists use many different terms to describe techniques and therefore the actual techniques taught may be different than expected.

The training is designed to build your knowledge and skills in an orderly manner. After the first week, the training is spaced out 2 days a week over the remaining 5 weeks so students are not overwhelmed in a short period of time.

The times your models will need to arrive will be determined on Day 1.  One model can do more than one procedure (except for eyebrows of course). Your models ideally should not have prior permanent makeup on the procedure area. We will discuss what else makes for a good model the first day of class. You will need a minimum of 5 models, you can do up to 7 models. There is a $20 additional fee per model to cover blades, needle cartridges, personal protection equipment and quality model aftercare products. You can have your model pay or you can pay the fee.

The fees are about $25 and take about 2 hours online; a list of approved courses will be provided at enrollment. This training is required by Federal OSHA rules, Colorado state / local laws and our insurance. You will also need to provide proof of either a Hepatitis B vaccination or sign a waiver form. It is strongly recommended that you obtain the 3 shot HEP B vaccination series if you have not previously been vaccinated.

The tuition is $5,000. A $1,000 deposit is required to save your space in a class.  (deposit is applied towards your tuition)
