How do I go on to achieve V.T.C.T. certification?

Students that complete the online course will be invited back to the professional environment of the Up to My Eyes Salon and will carry out a full emBrowdery treatment from A – Z unaided. On successful completion, the student will be awarded with their formal Up To My Eyes Academy Certificate to Practice. This treatment will also be assessed by a VTCT Assessor. Points achieved will be used towards a full VTCT Qualification if the student would like to continue on to obtain this. This qualification is recognized in over 40 countries worldwide.

What else is important to consider?

Although it may seem quite simple, emBrowdery™ artistry is not a skill you are likely to see possessed by a typical micro-pigmentation therapist and is more skilled than micro-blading. Only someone who is totally proficient in the procedure involved in brow design can truly be called an emBrowdery™ Brow Shaper. You need to have realistic expectations of what you will be able to achieve initially as this technique requires time and patience to master.

emBrowdery™ Certification

On completion of the emBrowdery™ Training Course, you will be presented with an emBrowdery™ Certification. This will ensure that you can become fully Insurable. Should you like to become a fully qualified Micro-pigmentation Technician with the VTCT, we can organise for you to train in eyeliner, lipmentation and powder affect eyebrows. These skills are a necessary requirement to achieve a full Semi-Permanent Make-Up Level 4 Qualification.
