How to Become a Certified Microblading Technician
Do your program research
Wondering how to become a certified microblading technician? Start with finding an extensive certification program! The best way to start is by doing your research. Search for microblading courses in your area. Keep an eye out for everything the program entails and what certification you will be getting. Research the company and instructors to get a feel for how reliable and experienced they are. Reviews are always helpful to refer to. It may also be helpful to reach out to your social media community to search for past students and get referrals from friends. The price tag is something many use as a way to determine which course they will take as well. Look at what each course offers, sometimes a higher price tag could be more worthwhile if you are able to use live models, take home instruction manuals, etc.
Get a bloodborne pathogen certificate
You will need to obtain a bloodborne pathogen certificate in order to become a certified microblading technician. To achieve your certification, you need to purchase a course (typically online) and work through the modules and take the test. The test is designed and required for anyone who can come into contact with blood or other bodily fluids in the workplace. The course teaches how bloodborne pathogens are spread, how to avoid harmful exposure and what to do if exposure happens. These courses are typically no more than $30. It can be very informative as you’re embarking on this new journey into the world of permanent makeup.
Attend your microblading certification course
You’ve done your research, selected a program and received your bloodborne pathogen certification, now it’s time to learn, learn, learn! Attend an in-person microblading course to get the best education possible. Typically microblading training starts with lecture-style teachings then move into actual practice. Take plenty of notes during these teachings for something to refer back to. Don’t be shy, ask your instructors any questions you may have. This is the time to get your questions answered and to practice your craft. Once you move into actual microblading practice, you’ll typically start on a skin-like material.
