SPCP 100 Hrs. Fundamental Permanent Cosmetic Training & Certification

The path to becoming a Permanent Cosmetic Artist varies depending on where you live and what your state regulations are.  The direction of your permanent makeup career will depend on which artistic path you go towards within the field of permanent cosmetics. The one aspect that is invariable is the importance of acquiring 100 hours of Fundamental Permanent Cosmetics Training from a Licensed Training Academy and a SPCP Member Certified Trainer.

Get Certified as a Permanent Cosmetic Artist

The Society of Permanent Cosmetics Professionals (SPCP), holds the highest guidelines for the safety and practice of permanent cosmetics, and is recognized nationally and internationally for it’s training curriculum, hands-on practicum, and written exam certification process.  At Cosmetic Enhancement Clinic & Academy our students complete 100 hours of SPCP Fundamental Training also recognized by the American Academy of Micropigmentation (AAM).

Wanda Enoch, Owner and Trainer of Cosmetic Enhancement Clinic & Academy, is a Certified AAM & SPCP Lifetime Trainer Member.  Her career as a Permanent Makeup Artist started in 1993, she continues to deliver today’s most sought after PMU techniques in Microblading, Microshading, and Soft Tap artistry. Wanda is also an accomplished Paramedical PMU Artist featured in several publications and forums. For a more extensive review of her professional accomplishments see our “About” page.

The 100 Hour Fundamental Curriculum offers:

What sets Cosmetic Enhancement Clinic & Academy apart is Wanda’s belief that each student must have their own work station and model in the training environment for the best hands on experience. She feels that the education would be limited if students share a model in a group setting. It is her goal to make your training as comprehensive as possible by allowing you to work from start to finish on each permanent cosmetic procedure. By the end of the 100 hour Fundamental Training each student will have individually completed permanent cosmetic brows, eyeliner enhancement, and lips procedures several times from start to finish on live models.

The 100 course is divided between 40 hours of home study then followed by 65 hours of classroom through hands on.  From color theory, instrument utilization, and business planning, we ensure each student will leave our Fundamental Training ready to begin their career.
