Attending Live Classes
- Proper identification is required before entering class (state ID, driver’s license, or passports are acceptable). The identification must match the name on the official class registration and the esthetics or cosmetology license.

- Jewelry should not be excessive and dangling. Hand and arm jewelry such as watches and bracelets are discouraged.
- Closed toe shoes must be worn.
- Nails should be short, neat, and clean.
- Plan to arrive early to allow sufficient time for ID verification. Class will start promptly at the designated start time. If an attendant arrives late, they may have to wait until there is a break in the class so that ID can be properly verified before entering, and so that a COVID-19 wellness check can be performed.
- Only registered attendants are allowed to attend class. Models are allowed in the training during the designated hands-on time only. If a model arrives at the start of the training, they should wait in the car until the designated time for the hands-on portion. Perimeter Mall, Starbucks, and other eateries are nearby to help pass the time until the hands-on portion of the class begins. Please refrain from bringing friends, family, or any other personnel to the training as they will not be allowed inside.
Attending Virtual Classes
- Virtual class attendants MUST have their cameras on and be visible for the duration of the class.
- Virtual attendants are expected to dress in proper professional esthetics attire, be in a proper learning environment free from distractions, and be an active participant during class. If an attendant does not have their camera on for most of the duration of the class, they may be removed, and registration fees forfeited. Class will start on time. Please log into the training session a few minutes early to sort any technical difficulties that may arise.
