Continued education is the key to success in every field.

The level of product knowledge differentiates between the amateur and the professional. We want all of our CosmoBiz Beauty Examiners to be well informed about the products and usage of everything they review. Knowing the proper ins and outs of everything you use means you can give a more in-depth look at the products and prevent loss of money and time to yourself and viewers.

Not all bloggers are professional cosmetologists, makeup artists, aestheticians or doctors. They come in all shapes and sizes.  That’s why we offer a comprehensive beauty consultant training program which is FREE for our Beauty Examiners.

We also host “Business Seminars Exclusively for CosmoBiz Beauty Examiners” in major cities. You will have one-on-one meeting opportunities with major company executives and VIPs.

Our affiliate organisations host major hair shows and conventions throughout the year. We plan to host special sessions for the CosmoBiz Beauty Examiners to meet with other Examiners and industry leaders. The beauty industry is all about fun and we want our Examiners to be able to participate in these exciting and educational events.
