Our Mission is to inspire and support permanent cosmetic professionals from around the globe through education, opportunities and the latest in industry technology while promoting and upholding the highest safety standards.
The American Academy of Micropigmentation invites you to join this prestigious group of dedicated permanent cosmetic professionals, physicians, nurses, cosmetologists, estheticians, electrologists and others in the field. Be the best!
Comprised of a board of professionals, the American Academy of Micropigmentation is committed to serving the public and its practitioners by improving the quality of micropigmentation training and practice. By raising the bar on education, we can benefit the consumer, the practitioner and the trainers. Members will be provided with educational materials regularly, discounts from participating vendors as well as an annual conference, featuring the latest in procedures, techniques and supplies.
A Voluntary Board Certification process that fosters excellence and encourages continuous learning is available for the practitioner. Each candidate undergoes a rigorous 3-part examination process including a written exam, and oral exam and a practical exam. Board Certification by our not-for-profit organization is voluntary and only mandatory in the States of Maine, New Jersey and Nevada but also as a pre-requisite to become a CMI.
Our goal is to be the professional academy that educates, informs and inspires permanent cosmetic artists around the globe.
The intent of the certification process of the AAM is to provide assurance to the public and to the medical profession that a certified micropigmentation professional has completed an accredited course of education in micropigmentation and an evaluation including an examination. The evaluation is designed to assess the knowledge, experience and skills required to deliver the highest standards of quality client care in permanent cosmetics.
