Body Piercing Course
Angel Face Jewellery is pleased to offer body piercing courses. The courses are open to anyone over the age of 18 who wishes to learn body piercing and are carried out by a fully licenced and experienced piercing practitioner.
A full description of the course cost and content is outlined below. If you have any questions regarding the course please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01706 823880.
This course is designed to teach you the principles of body piercing. The courses are all one on one to allow you to receive the full benefit of our experience and are made up of a combination of home study, written tests and practical piercing experience with the added benefit of post course follow-up.
Course Content – Home Study
When you book onto a course, you will receive a home study pack which consists of technical and biological information relating to different types of piercing as well as information about setting up a studio and relevant legal documentation. The study pack also contains a DVD to allow you to observe a range of different piercings being carried out.
At the end of the study booklet there is a written test which you must complete prior to attending your practical course. The home study is intended to be carried out over a minimum period of a fortnight prior to your practical course.
Course Content – Practical Course
The practical course is based at the Angel Face shop in Ramsbottom and lasts for a full day. During the course of the day you will work alongside the professional piercer and carry out between 10 and 15 piercings of your own.
Prior to carrying out any piercings, you will learn about studio hygiene, basic first aid and studio equipment as well as Health and Safety and local authority piercing regulations. You will be required to complete a short written test on the above subjects.
Course Content – Follow-Up
Should you choose to begin your piercing career straight away, you will be offered on-going access to advice and support from Angel Face Jewellery. Once you have registered with your local council as a body piercer, you will also be able to buy body piercing equipment and supplies from Angel Face Jewellery at trade prices.
The cost of the course is £495. You will be required to pay a non-refundable deposit of £75 when you book the course and the remainder on the day of your practical course. In addition to standard piercings, you may also wish to learn how to carry out Microdermal and Skin Diver piercings which will cost an additional £35.
If the course booking is cancelled with less than 14 days notice before the date of your practical course, a cancellation fee of £250 will be charged. If the course is rearranged for a date within 3 months of the original course, the cancellation fee will not be charged. FAILURE TO ATTEND THE COURSE WITHOUT PRIOR CANCELLATION WILL RESULT IN THE FULL OUTSTANDING BALANCE BEING CHARGED. Your local authority will be advised that a course was booked by you and subsequently not attended. This is to prevent you applying for a licence and using our course as proof of knowledge.
