What is the Difference Between Diamond and Platinum Status?
Diamond and Platinum Trainers are equal in terms of knowledge, experience, and expertise.
Diamond Membership is a global membership tier designed for permanent makeup trainers located outside of New Jersey. Diamond Trainers must offer a 100-hour fundamental course on any PMU procedure(s) of their choosing. The course must include at least two apprenticeship procedures directly supervised by the Diamond Trainer plus four additional unsupervised procedures reviewed by the Diamond Trainer.
Platinum Membership is designed to meet New Jersey State requirements. Platinum members must offer a specific 100-hour fundamental course called Primary Training. This training includes eyebrow, eyeliner, and lip procedures using a machine. It must include two apprenticeship procedures of each type (totalling 6) that are directly supervised by the Platinum Trainer. If you are a trainer in New Jersey or wish to work with New Jersey students, please see our Platinum Trainer Membership type.
