1) Board Certification is a well-respected, lifetime achievement.
We’ve got great news for you… Board certification is an accomplishment that does not expire and does not need renewal! Your AAM Gold Certificate is an honor that garners respect from clients and colleagues alike. This mark of distinction testifies to the mastery that you have demonstrated and your commitment to the highest of standards. Separate yourself as an elite professional in the PMU industry with official AAM Board Certification.
2) Gold Membership provides resources worth more than 10X the price of membership.
AAM Gold membership includes access to educational materials from global industry – all included in the price of membership. Individual courses or mentorship from amazing Artists like Sheila Bella, Emily Joy, Leann La, Rhonda Vacanti, and Rose Marie Beauchemin-Verzella would be an investment of thousands of dollars. However, membership to the AAM Gold tier provides access to content from all of them, plus many more special guests.
3) The AAM provides resources suited to how you learn best.
The AAM offers educational materials in a variety of formats to suit different learning styles. We have webinars for visual learners, a podcast for auditory learning, group coaching for those who engage best with interactive learning, and even downloadable materials for those who wish to study on their own. Our resource library is expanding with new topics ranging from technique to business and everything in between.
4) Artists feel more confident with the support of the AAM.
The permanent makeup industry can be a lonely field… especially when your state and/or city doesn’t offer a lot of resources to help you be a safe and successful business. Luckily, you can take charge of things by joining a network that offers real world support and structure. For example, when the Coronavirus Pandemic impacted our world and closed the doors to our studios, the AAM presented an informational webinar to help Artists re-open with confidence. Not only that, but we also prepared a package of Covid-related materials to help members implement new safety protocols, easily print out important signage and protect themselves legally.
5) The AAM educational content is accessible 24/7.
Members are encouraged to join our live events virtually, but they are also available as recordings for those who have a scheduling conflict. Watch our webinar recordings, download our client forms, and take our online exam at the time that works for your schedule. Our Member Resources Library is available online 24/7 to active members.
6) The AAM features content that appeals to all experience levels.
The AAM educational content covers a wide range of topics from procedure fundamentals, to social media marketing to business basics. In many cases, the AAM offers continued education credits to help Artists meet their goals. From the newly trained to Artists with veteran status, we create the content that you need.
7) AAM membership is an affordable and convenient investment in yourself.
Imagine taking your board certification exam while sitting on your couch… with one low price that includes your online exam, complimentary study guide, and even a bonus first year of membership! AAM membership includes exclusive member perks like giveaways, special presentations, and more. Regardless of whether you belong to other organizations or reside in another country, AAM membership is worth its weight in gold.
