Choose your trainer wisely!
I see so many training companies pop up and its had me thinking quite a lot about this. There are some exceptionally good trainers out there but also some very poor, inexperienced ones. There are companies who put their focus on selling machines, don’t actually use the machines and may be relying on manufacturer instructions to provide your training.
Here’s a few guidelines on what you should look for when choosing your training provider:
- How long have they been in industry?
- Do they have experience of carrying out treatments on clients? Trainers should have at least one years experience in performing treatments to be able to fully understand and advise on problem resolution.
- What qualifications do they hold? Ideally your trainer should not only have experience of carrying out treatments on clients but also have a beauty/aesthetics background and hold a teaching qualification.
- Who trained your trainer? They say imitation is the best form of flattery but again this can impact on your trainers experience and expertise.
- What’s their feedback like? Thanks to social media platforms such as Facebook you can check reviews left by others and contact former trainees to see what they thought of their training.
- Do they have the relevant insurance in place? Training providers should also be insured to teach, don’t be afraid to ask to see this or any other qualifications the trainer holds.
A good training provider won’t need to chase you for business. Their reputation and quality of training materials, as well as lead times on availability speaks for itself.
