You can prepay your entire course fee or you can make payments.  Whichever you prefer.


A spot/seat in a course is on a first-come first-serve basis, meaning we do not hold spots available.  You must pay 25% of the total course fee to reserve your spot.  This must be paid at least 2 weeks prior to the course start date.  (The only exception to this is to 100% Online courses because you may start them as soon as you receive your digital materials.) If you do not show up for & attend the course then you forfeit your deposit.  Any amount prepaid more than the deposit will be refunded to you.  When you show up on the 1 day of the course, it is applied to the balance of the total course fee.  The remainder of the course fee is due no later than the day of 1st instruction prior to class start.  If you bring a payment with you, you may pay either by Cash or Cashier's check made out to the instructor, Desiree Lauterbach.

The Center For Permanent Makeup's offers different training courses under the direct supervision of it head Permanent Cosmetics Specialist, Desiree Lauterbach. 

Some courses are available in Hybrid (some self-study at home & some hands-up study in our studio) and while others may be taken 100% Onlinein the comfort of your own home.  Courses from beginning through advanced techniques are available for Permanent Makeup, Microblading, Medical Tattoo, and Dermagraphics. 

Each course will cover various aspects of the subject. We believe our our course to be one of the most comprehensive in the industry anywhere today!

We are not interested in churning out large quantities of students.  We are a specialty service studio & training academy that prefers to keep things small, dedicated to quality, so we only train a few people at a time.  We are confident that this way of instruction helps students best in being able to become quality industry service providers. 

Previous experience not necessary, but a good attitude and willingness to learn a must!

Just some of the many benefits of training with the Center For Permanent Makeup:

  • Small class size and 1-on-1 training available
  • Comprehensive courses to prepare you for real world issues.   Study materials, hands-on practice, what to do after you get certified so you can work, and more in depth topics like not just how to do procedures but how to handle corrections, touch-up appointments, client issues, & more!
  • Train directly under a seasoned PMUA Master in the field for over 14 years!
  • ​Models may be provided at no additional cost to student when available.  Unlike many other academies, we don't charge you if we provide a model, however, to ensure live model work you should provide your own model.  
  • Hands-on training by actually doing procedures from start to finish!  You won't get stuck with only being able to do a few minutes of trace work like they do at many other academies.  
  • Affordable cost:  Comparable to national average for course fees, we offer payment plans, and financing available for those who qualify (If you are approved, then you could pay via Paypal and have up to 6 months interest free financing.  See their websites for approval and details.)
  • Deluxe Student Starter Kit provided for PMU (eyebrow, eyeliner, lips) and Microblading & shading courses.
  • Ongoing support
  • & A guarantee that if you do not feel you are able to do the procedure on your own after you take the course, you are welcome to come back tuition fee FREE* and take it again.  *A small consumables fee will apply to cover supplies.  We are the only training academy that offers this guarantee!  Why?  Because we are that confident in what we do!
  • A certificate you earn.  Yes, this is a good thing because when you receive a certificate from us it is because you earned it by showing you know the topics we taught you and by the skill you showed during the procedures we had you work on.

There is a lot to learn, but there is a lot to earn $$$!
