Salon Operator Certification

The Salon Operator Certification program allows people inside of the tanning industry to become more professional, more knowledgeable, and more prepared for almost anything they will face on a daily basis at the tanning salon. Because the Sun Is Life program is available on-line, it allows you to take the classes, learn the material, and test for comprehension, at your own pace. You are able to access the program at any time and can complete the exam when you are confident that you are ready. In the certification program, you will be learning the basic “ins and outs” of the tanning salon industry. After taking the certification program, you will feel more comfortable and more confident when helping your salon guests. Knowledge is power, so the more you know, the more you can help customers with their questions and concerns.

Operator Advanced Training

Once you have taken the Salon Operator Certification course, it is extremely beneficial to take the Advanced Operator Training program. With the Advanced Training program, you are able to gain a deeper level of understanding and knowledge in important issues that face tanning owners and operators on a daily basis. Each flight offers a different level of learning and is available to you on-line at any time. With the completion of all three flights, you will receive a certificate for earning your Advanced Operator Training certification.
