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.

Are you ready to take the Milady RISE Certification in Client Well-Being & Safety?

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, particularly 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?

    The certification costs $29.95.

  • How long does it take to get certified?

    The Milady RISE Certification in Client Well-Being & Safety takes approximately 3.5 hours to complete. The infection Control course is 2 hours. The Domestic Abuse Awareness course is 1 hour. The Human Trafficking Awareness course is .5 hours. 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 infection control exam consists of 25 questions.
    • 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.

  • Why do I need to take infection control when I already studied it in school?

    No doubt, infection control was one of the first topics you learned in school. If you’re a licensed beauty professional, you already practice safety and infection control on a daily basis. But here’s the thing: standards and best practices do evolve (even more so now given the pandemic). Refreshing your knowledge is a smart strategy during uncertain times. Plus, your clients will appreciate—and even expect—to see that you are up-to-date on the latest infection control protocol.

  • 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.
