At the Institute of Beauty and Wellness, we created our schedule with your availability and optimal learning opportunities in mind. Our current program is half remote and half in-person. Your classes will take place Monday and Tuesday each week and will include a standard 8-hour day.

Your morning will include the Theory Learning portion which will be taught through an online platform remotely. After your theory class, you will make your way over to one of our SKN BAR Rx locations for the practical training portion of your learning. During your practical training, you will apply the lessons that you were taught that morning to ensure you feel confident and stay on track with the curriculum.

Hours will vary based on start time, but will be discussed further at registration. During your registration process, it will also be determined which SKN BAR Rx location you will be training at each week to ensure you have proper notice. Participating in classes two times a week will set the program duration at a total of six weeks. We did this to ensure you are provided a healthy work, school, and personal balance.
