Content of the courses:
The contents of the cosmetic making courses are clear and aimed at immediate practice, thus, they contain a theoretical base, which allows students to put into practice the knowledge acquired.
Women and men with or without previous knowledge in cosmetology, presented in a practical way, clear, simple and complete.
Upon enrollment, ingredients for making the products in the course will be sent to the student.
As soon as the ingredients have been received then the class can start whenever the student is ready.
Jan will set tasks to be completed in the students own time.
Students will be accompanied by Jan herself throughout the learning process.
Students will be able to ask questions and verify the formulas they create by e-mail, telephone or Skype.
At the end of each course, the tutor will suggest some practical studies (final evaluation) to apply the knowledge learned during the training.
Once this has been completed, the candidate will receive a certificate that accredits the accomplishment of the course, which will then be sent by e mail.
The course is designed to last 6-8 hours approximately or 4 weeks. However, students may spend more or less time to complete the course depending on their available time.
Enrollment will remain valid for a period of one year from the start of the course.
We have a support group called Benham’s beauties 2014 on facebook that is open for students both past and present. New recipes are added from time to time. And this gives you the opportunity to connect and share with like-minded cosmetic makers.
Congratulations on making your very own healthy skin care products!
