ABE Institute offers a Student Instructor program at the Main campus. Student Instructors, whether for Masterclasses or Esthetics, of ABE Institute are trained with employment in mind and given access to our curriculum and proprietary information. As such, the Institute enrolls students with the hope that an employment position will be available upon graduation (employment is not guaranteed and will be dependent upon cultural adaptability and performance). Due to these circumstances, enrollment is dependent upon need, but no less than every 6 months.
Applicants seeking admission into an instructor training program must possess one of the previous certifications AND hold a current Board of Cosmetology license in the state (TN or GA). In ABE, a candidate must have had the Board of Cosmetology license for at least one year. In Tennessee, applicants must have had the Board of Cosmetology license for at least three years.
Tuition covers the expert knowledge gained, and in-class training undergone, at ABE: two elements necessary for a successful certification. It also includes all of the Masterclasses and Esthetics Course (e.g. “Master Kit” of 20 essential tools), texts, workbooks, testing books, and materials required to complete this revolutionary program.
We happily provide an in-depth description of each program at ABE, promising full transparency to our student body. Our admissions team will make it a priority to answer any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have.
At ABE, an informed student is not a secondary concern, but a pressing priority. Here, important information concerning our graduation rates, placement rates, and licensure rates is included for your convenience.
What I loved most was the hands-on learning: learning in a professional salon atmosphere that I received during my tenure. The education department equipped me for a successful future, and also encouraged me to always reach out for guidance as needed once I was in the field.
I graduated in June and was licensed as of July and I can say this is one of the best experiences so far. In school I took my career serious and knew I wanted to waste no time on getting started so I took extra courses while I was in school and literally had my own suite 3 months before I finished school. Fast forward to today I’m currently at Trends Style Studio where I specialize in body waxing, skincare and body sculpting. I’m always taking extra courses to enhance my knowledge and add to my services.
