We’re excited to announce that our campuses have both been reopened and we can now teach our students again in-person!
At American Institute of Beauty, nothing is more important to us than our students’ safety. As a result of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we have moved all our programs to online learning. What does this mean for your future beauty education? With many plans and events cancelled, you may be wondering what you can do now to make sure you’re ready to pursue your dream career when this extended period at home is finally over.
Our team wants to help you reach your goals which is why we’ve been working hard to implement temporary, online learning for all our programs! Not sure what to expect from an online beauty education? Don’t worry, we explain everything below!
What Will Online Learning Look Like at American Institute of Beauty?
Normally, part of our beauty programs include a practical portion where students can practice all the lessons they’ve been taught on real clients under the direct supervision of our licensed professionals. Although this isn’t possible right now with social distancing, it’s far from the only way you learn beauty. Practical learning is only taught after students have studied multiple beauty techniques that clients depend on beauty professionals to understand.
Students have always needed a foundation in beauty theory before moving on to the next step and that hasn’t changed! During your online education, our educators will focus on teaching you the theory side of beauty so you’re prepared to interact with clients when it’s safe.
Remember, the beauty and wellness industry is built on human interaction and relationships. You cannot have a successful education without in-person, classroom learning. As soon as it is safe, we are excited to welcome all our students back into our schools to finish their education.
What Can I Expect From These Online Classes?
To help our determined students continue their passion for beauty, we’ve worked to provide students with the same high-quality education we’ve always had through an online experience. Just like before, students can expect to receive encouragement and advice from our amazing educators via Zoom. It’s important that we’re doing everything we can to help you get used to this new way of learning so you can have a sense of routine while working towards your passion. That’s why you should expect daily, interactive Zoom class sessions that encourage you to learn more about the world of beauty through engaging lessons!
We know that online learning can seem intimidating, especially if you’ve never done it before. If you have any questions about your online lessons or even need tips on how to adjust to learning from home, don’t hesitate to reach out to your educator. They’re here for you during this time and want to help any way they can. Remember that good communication with them is key to getting the most out of your theory lessons on beauty!
The other half of your online education is spent by taking what you’ve learned from your instructor’s lecture and completing quizzes and work exercises. These assignments that allow you to see how far you’ve come in your beauty knowledge will be done through Milady MINDTAP, an online learning program. Everyone who enrolls in our programs will have access to Milady MINDTAP and to the theory on beauty textbook that’s taught along with it. The best part is that you can complete all of your assignments on your own time and when it works best for you!
We know our students are passionate about their beauty education so we trust them to do what it takes to finish their theory lessons so they’re ready to show off what they’ve learned when we reopen our locations.
