Domestic Abuse Awareness (1 hour)

The stats are startling: 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience Intimate Partner Violence, the act of physical abuse by their intimate partner at some point during their lifetimes. At least 5 million acts of domestic abuse occur annually to women aged 18 years and older, with over 3 million involving men. As a beauty professional, you’re uniquely positioned to help. Learn how to recognize the signs and what to do next.

Portion of proceeds are donated to the PBA's CUT IT OUT® — The Beauty Community Against Domestic Abuse.

Human Trafficking Awareness (30+ minutes)

Every year, 18,000 - 20,000 victims are trafficked into the United States, and more than half are children, according to the Women’s Center-Youth & Family Services. California, Texas, and Florida are the top states for human trafficking, but it can happen anywhere. Again, if you’re trained in what to look for, YOU can make a difference.

FAQs

  • Why should I take the Milady RISE Certification in Client Well-Being & Safety?

    As a professional (or future professional) in the beauty industry, you are in a unique position to protect public health and—when trained properly—recognize signs of domestic abuse and human trafficking. These are incredibly important issues, particular when you consider 1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men will experience physical violence by their intimate partner at some point during their lifetimes. You can help.

  • How much does this certification cost?

    Since you recently completed infection control separately, we’re offering the final two courses in this particular certification for only $9.95. (The full cost for this 3-part certification is $29.95.)

  • How long does it take to get certified?

    Since you already completed infection control (a 2-hour course), you only need to invest another 1.5 hours to complete the remaining courses in domestic abuse awareness and human trafficking awareness. Each course has a final exam at the end.

  • What are the final exams like?

    Each exam tests you on the content you learned in the specific course. • The domestic abuse awareness exam consists of 10 questions.
    • The human trafficking awareness exam consists of 5 questions.

    Each exam is “served up” to you automatically after you complete the course. You can choose to take it right away, or you can wait until a convenient time. That said, we encourage you to take each exam as soon as you complete a course.

    You must achieve a 70% score on EACH final exam to pass and become Milady RISE Certified in Client Well-Being & Safety. If you fail an exam, you can retake it.

  • Does this certification expire?

    Yes. Because standards and information in the three areas of infection control, domestic abuse awareness, and human trafficking awareness will evolve, your certification will expire after two years.

Protect your clients, give a voice to the most vulnerable, and make a positive impact on your community.
