WHO IS IT FOR?
The Extension Academy's Microshading Training Class is an advanced technique for Microbladers. As such we require that students for our Microshading class already hold a valid Microblading training certificate (it does not have to be from The Extension Academy, any reputable training provider's certificate will do).
We are often asked why we don't teach Microblading and Microshading within the same course. Our honest experience is that trying to learn both skills at once is simply too much and we strongly recommend that you consider this if you're looking at a one or two-day Microblading and Microshading all-in-one course.
Our in-person classes are kept small with a maximum of 10 students and two trainers, ensuring each student receives ample one to one attention and tuition.
CLASSROOM CLASSES | ONLINE TRAINING | PRIVATE LESSONS
Our Microshading Masterclass is offered in both classroom based and online formats!
Our in-person classes are kept small with a maximum of 6-8 students ensuring each student receives ample one to one attention. Classes are held in our dedicated training facility & consist of classroom-based theory, live demos, and plenty of practice time. The Extension Academy adheres to strict health and safety guidelines and we are committed to providing a safe training environment which includes physical distancing, PPE stations, temperature checks & mandatory mask wearing at all times while inside our facility.
For those who prefer to learn at their own pace and from the comfort of their home, we also offer all of our training classes online (as seen in the above video). Online students receive the same business starter kit as the students from our classroom course and have up to one month to complete their training. Our training kits are shipped world wide and arrive within 5-7 days after registration. Our online training covers the same curriculum as our physical classes using a variety of written sections, video tutorials and quizzes. Certification is immediate on completion of the course! Online students are also able to attend an in-person training class at our facility to complete their model work under a trainer’s supervision at no additonal cost (optional & based on class availability).
If you can’t make it to a scheduled class, or if you just prefer learning in a one to one environment, private lessons are a great option! We offer private classes Monday- Friday on a date that is convenient for you. You will work one on one with our one of our head trainers in our dedicated training facility. Private lessons are completed over one day and are completed at a pace that is suited to your needs.
