Permanent makeup certification is not complete without bloodborne pathogen certification. Every permanent makeup artist and microblade technician should have their BBP certification.
We have now opened up our Bloodborne Pathogen Certification to any and every PMU technician and microblader who is serious about infection control. We owe the public safe and effective services. It is our duty to not only provide beautiful results but to do it in a manner that does not put them or us at risk.
Why are we offering this certification?
It has come to our attention that many or most practicing permanent makeup technicians have little or no training in BBP. Their understanding of OSHA guidelines and Universal Precautions is minimal. We have witnessed experienced practicing technicians taking our advanced workshops, unknowingly cross contaminate and conduct their procedures in a way that is not compliant with proper BBP and infection control. It isn’t that they are reckless or don’t care. They were never properly trained so they just don’t know. Some of the PMU technicians in our master workshops have been working in the industry for many years and have been practicing poor infection control techniques the entire time.
How much is the BBP Certification?
We include this training in our permanent makeup certification programs. There is no additional cost.
The BBP Certification is also open to any technician who wants to get certified, even if they are not registered to take any of our other programs for $5.
We require our specific BBP certification by experienced technicians who take our advanced workshops prior to the class even if you got your certification and it is up to date from another source. The price is only $5.
Is the Bloodborne Pathogen for the permanent makeup artist course difficult?
It will take you under an hour to complete! It is not a difficult course at all but it may have a lot of information that you were not aware of. There is a test and if you do not pass it, you can review the material and take the test until you pass. It is not the most exciting or fun course but it isn’t very difficult.
Do I get a certificate?
Upon completion of the Bloodborne Pathogen Certification For Permanent Makeup Artists, you get a printable document with two copies of your certification. One is a smaller card and the other is larger for framing and placing in your work area.
Why is it so cheap?
We are not interested in profiting off helping our industry and raising the bar on client protection. We want every permanent makeup artist to have this information and certification.
How often should a permanent makeup artist get certified in Bloodborne Pathogens?
The Bloodborne Pathogen Certification is good for one year. You don’t get it once and you’re done forever. The CDC and OSHA do update information and change some of their guidelines from time to time. We will be updating content to reflect any changes. Bloodborne Pathogen Certification expires yearly so the course has to be taken each year
