Boot Camp: practical session in the classroom

Corso Boot Camp: practical session in the classroom

Being an image consultant who brings on his profession in a way that is useful both for himself and for his customer is not easy: in addition to theoretical knowledge, it also takes a lot of practice.

That’s why Accademia Consulenza d’Immagine dedicates a peculiar attention to exercises, during the “Boot Camp: Practical session in the classroom” module.

The Bootcamp module is an 8-hour day of training, practice and refinement for image consultants who wish to improve their practical skills.
The practical sessions are focused on four areas of image consultancy, which are in turn divided into practice boot camps for both the female client and the male client. During the training, trainees will be able to practice firsthand on a typical client, with the support of a qualified teacher.

The importance of practice for image consultants

Undertaking a higher education path is essential for those who intend to devote themselves to the profession of image consultant in a comprehensive and profitable way: learning the theoretical knowledge that is essential in order to carry out this profession is the starting point of a long career.
However, the knowledge on paper must be followed by as many practical skills, which can be learned during the lessons of an advanced training course or with experience.

Practical lessons are therefore to be considered as the worthy crowning of an advanced training course: the end of the frontal learning hours is the time to test what you have learned. The use of “tool letto” on slides becomes practical thanks to the support of teachers who can help you set up a counseling session correctly and develop the typical “critical eye” of a professional consultant.

Who is it for?

The classroom practice Bootcamp is dedicated not only to our learners, but also to those who have previously attended other training schools and want to deepen the practical part of image consulting.

This is why in our Boot camps we welcome and work with trainees who, regardless of their training, wish to:

  • put theory into practice;
  • perform exercises on target clients before starting your business;
  • clarify any doubts that may have arisen during the theoretical learning of the subjects;
  • become more familiar and confident in the areas of expertise of image consultancy;
  • wants to improve their practice, immersing themselves in a real image consultancy situation.

Our Boot camp is offered in addition to the hours of practical exercises included in the advanced training courses of the Image Consulting Academy.

Module program

The Boot camp provides practical exercises in the four areas of image consulting:

  • Practical exercise on color analysis (Armocromia)
  • Practical exercise on body analysis (Body Shape)
  • Practical exercise on face analysis (Facial Shape)
  • Practical exercise on style analysis

During each exercise the trainees have the chance to put into practice the theoretical knowledge learned in first person, relying on a typical client who participates in the session. Each of the participants is supported by a teacher who assists him, guiding him throughout the activity.
Unlike what happens in other courses, it is possible to practice in real situations and in first person: it is not the teachers who advise the students, but the students themselves who get involved.

In short

8-hour practical training day from 9 to 18 with lunch break.
