The first step to sharpening skills and becoming a good Consultant/Trainee is establishing Sisterlocks on a mannequin head. This is actually the “first client” for each Trainee. We start working on these mannequins in class with the goal of finishing this task once class is over. Completing the mannequin head enables Trainees to observe the progress of their work, note their mistakes and receive additional coaching on anything they don’t understand. A mannequin, with a full head of Sisterlocks, serves as a wonderful model to display for potential clients.
The 2017 training schedule is available. To find a 4-Day training class:
We highly recommended Sisterlocks practitioners take advantage of ongoing education by taking periodic Refresher classes, either in the classroom or online. Reviewing the training information is key to becoming a good Consultant. The convenience of taking an online Refresher class is something that Consultants and Trainees who wants to review the training information can do in the comfort of their own home. Either method, online or in class, a Refresher class is a great way for our professionals to enhance their knowledge and skills.
While not required, we strongly recommend completing the steps to become certified. Certified Consultants have submitted evidence of their work and demonstrate a strong understanding of Sisterlocks theory. Once the documents and photos have been approved or any necessary coaching has taken place, a certificate is issued from Sisterlocks Home Office. Re-certification (submitting evidence of their work) is required bi-annually. This process, we’ve discovered, enables Certified Consultants to continue offering Sisterlocks services as they are intended.
Training, certification, ongoing education and Sisterlocks product knowledge are key to becoming a good Consultant. Performing Sisterlocks services, as they have been taught, is imperative in order to be a successful Consultant or Trainee.
