How to become an IMA Accredited School

To give you a rough overview we would initially require an inspection of your make-up department and your curriculum. During this inspection we would meet your lectures and take copies of their individual qualifications and CV’s

Once we are satisfied with your make-up department’s set-up we would require a senior member of your teaching staff (if they are not already holding an IMA qualification of their own) to attend one of our courses or you can arrange at your expense for one of our examiners to come over to your school.
All costs involved in this inspection and training will be paid in advance by the school to the IMA.

There is also a one off setting up cost plus an annual membership fee. Each course will require an examiner from the IMA to attend and mark the practical and theoretical examination of individual students at a specified cost per head.

There is a minimum payment for ten students per examination and a maximum of ten in any one session. All costs and expenses involved including the drawing up of contracts, (travel and hotel plus flights if applicable) will be covered by the school.
