If you are wanting to be an educator for Creative,
i believe you need to be a grand master,
have at least 5 years experience of been a nail tech (which you have)
and then as far as i know Creative invite you for an interview and then you have to get through creatives training boot camp.
I would say PM Gigi and she will give you all the info that you would need, after all they need to know who is interested in the first place to know who to invite :hug:

You need to find a current educator to Mentor you.

Get a resume together if you ARE a Grand Master, and get networking with as many educators and CND Techs as you can. I will qualify for my Grand Master AGAIN this December- 1st qualified last October. All for my resume baby ;)

Go to every tradeshow featuring CND that you can get to. I have flown to a few of them. I travel like crazy to get to classes!

And yes, try to be patient, or bang pots and pans the loudest. Find a unique nitch, that's also uniquely YOURS.

And stay on your A-Game- get those smile lines, mix ratios, application, and prep DOWN. Also go to the website and start memorizing the product profiles!!

Good luck! I hope I see you at Bootcamp... :)

Just write to:

Send her your CV and tell her what you think you have to offer CND in the UK. You do need to be a Grand Master however.

Maybe I should write Samantha and move to the UK lol.

ALTHOUGHHH, the CND Institute is opening in the Spring, and jobs are being listed on the website. Maybe a move to sunny california???

HOW COOL WOULD IT BE TO WORK AT THE INSTITUTE WHEN IT FIRST OPENS???

I get all starry eyed thinking about it...

wow thanks for all the answers! although i've been doing it 7 years im only 21, started at 14 (slave labour lol) only did foundation creative course in 2003 as had previously trained with ez flow when 1st started, so i guess i have a lot more training to go to before I can even try out for anything like educating! Thanks again for all the answers :)

Not at all - you have to qualify as a Creative Master in each system within 2 years (I think) of starting the first one. It's 3 Master qualifications, L+P, Brisa and Spa Mani/Pedi.....
