Turn these skills into an enjoyable hobby, as you create cosmetics for family and friends, giving them unique and treasured gifts. This could even be the start of a business opportunity if you want to turn craft into cash.
We have a support group called Benham’s beauties 2014 on face book 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.
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.
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.
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 8 hours approximately or 4 weeks. However, students may spend more or less time to complete the course depending on their available time.
Enrolment will remain valid for a period of one year from the start of the course.
