Our Wealth of Knowledge
They say that knowledge is power. At the Academy we believe that knowledge is only as good as those who create and share it. It is for this reason that we attained some of the most talented and innovative minds in the beauty industry to work with us constantly to develop and contribute to our Education Innovations. These Education Innovations are achieved by our trainers, who constantly are seeking new and modern ways to deliver new content, techniques, tips and vehicles to deliver the best forms of education to you. It is because of our unwavering focus on superior education that we’ve become the exclusive sunless tanning company teaching esthetics students at the world renowned Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics. Below are some of our proudest innovations and contributions to our beauty industry.
Sunless Spray Tanning Certification Series
Unlike esthetics and cosmetology there are no required hours or certification by law to begin offering sunless tanning. There are many books, manufacturer seminars and online courses some people can take to receive an informal form of certification, but we found through our customers that the material is not as comprehensive, or in-depth as it could be and leaves the student unprepared to truly succeed in incorporating sunless tanning into a salon or spa and be successful with it. DVD’s, videos on YouTube or 2 hours crash course seminars held at hotels and trade shows do not work. With the Academy we’ve created an environment that is conducive to learning and will immerse people in an atmosphere that will build their skills.
We’ve created the first fully comprehensive series for courses to really teach salons and spas the techniques and business of sunless spray tanning:
Our Sunless Tanning Spray Technique:
As we are innovators and teachers, we spent years learning, testing and perfecting the development of the easiest, most consistent, science driven, and fool-proof method for any novice to learn spray tanning fast. We employ and consult spray consultants, teachers and scientists who have worked with and rigorously tested the supposed “tried and true” techniques employed by competitors and punched holes through them all. We teach you:
- The fool-proof side to side technique, spraying in a vertical pattern leading to effortless and consistent deposit of color…time after time.
- The “no-brainer”, flawless spray tanning technique.
- Eliminates overspray, saving money, messy clean-ups and allowing for targeted and beautiful depth of color.
- Allows the spray consultant to feather and taper a client’s hands and feet, removing the need for goopy, messy barrier cream.
- A jaw-dropping and signature “sun-kissed” technique that is indistinguishable from a real tan
- Increase your confidence in delivering a superior, flawless tan.
- Eliminate trial-and-error learning. Don’t settle for teaching yourself techniques that don’t work or don’t work well.
The Virtual Learning Environment
Learning isn’t always easy. Many people who are considering adding sunless spray tanning to their treatment menu are held back because of limited access to education. The Aviva Labs Health & Wellness Academy in Woburn, Massachusetts was created for this reason, however realistically in the fast paced world we live in; our customers don’t always have the time or resources to join us here for a hands-on course, or at any one of our other satellite facilities at our Aviva Labs distributors. This was the reason we created the Academy’s Virtual Learning Environment, a digital web based extension of our courses, available when our customers want it: 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
