Ear piercing has been used as a method of displaying body jewellery for many years, and in many different cultures. An ear piercing course is designed to teach delegates how to pierce ears in a safe and effective way. A complete and thorough demonstration of the ear piercing process is given. The students will then practice the piercing of the lobe under close inspection.
Who is the Ear Piercing course aimed at?
Many hairdressing and beauty salons are keen to have staff who are trained in ear piercing. Offering this additional service will help them to increase both their revenue and client database. There is no entry requirement for this course but delegates must be 18+. Many courses will require you to bring a model to piece their lobes. Failure to bring a model may mean the trainer is unable to issue a certificate, as no practical experience has been completed. Some Local Authorities also require salons to pay a registration fee if piercing is going to take place on the premises.
