Permanent Makeup & Microblading Licensing Program

Programs  At Nevada Permanent Makeup Academy

Our traditional classroom full time program fills up very quickly. Our traditional class is full with a waiting list until 2021. You can reserve a seat for 2021 or ask to be added to the waiting list.

Due to the popularity of permanent cosmetics and the need for technicians we have created additional educational program options.

The new programs include the full academic and apprenticeship licensing program that the full time program consists of. The delivery method is primarily via the virtual classroom on line. There are four program options now. There are now options that are a percentage of virtual Academy and hands on clinic floor hours. For example, our 50/50 program is 50% virtual Academy (on line for the first three months) and 50% in clinic (hands on traditional classroom work the last three months).

These new programs were created for the busy mom or working professional who simply cannot attend a weekday program for six months. These programs are designed for motivated and disciplined individuals. They require passion – practice and persistence.

The academic portion and many art lessons have been moved to the on line classes AKA virtual classroom. The 50/50 program first three months of lessons are via through the virtual classroom. There are various quizzes and essay questions in each unit. The online virtual classroom corresponds with the students 198 page text book and workbook. Supplemental art and design lessons are presented in the virtual classroom. A combination of audio, video and reading lessons are provided. Practice skins and all materials needed are provided in the student kit to complete art exercises.

Upon the completion of the three month fundamental academic program on line, the student will begin in Academy clinic hours and hands on training. This will include working on practice skins, pig skins and then human models. There will be several hours of homework and practice assignments each week. The student can take home their kit and will have everything to complete their assigned practice assignments. The hands-on class is one day or evening a week starting in their fourth month for the 50/50 program. The final three months of the 50/50 program are completed in clinic. Upon completion of the six-month program, students receive their SNHD document to pick up their official license.
