IBS School of Cosmetology and Massage
Welcome to the IBS School of Cosmetology with two locations located in Oregon. IBS has been a pioneer in the competency format of education and all locations provide competency programs in cosmetology. We prepare our students to excel in this field by offering courses in hair design, esthetics, nail technology, barbering and massage.
IBS partners with industry leaders to provide the best possible environment to excel in cosmetology. The hair design program partners with Chi and Framesi, the nail design program partners with OPI and the esthetics program partners with MAC and Dermalogica. The combination of the facilities, instruction and vendors set standards that are intended to put student on par with contemporary high end salons.
IBS is pleased to launch its newest campus in Maui, Hawaii providing instruction in cosmetology and massage classes. The facility consists of 5,000 square feet of purpose built space. The format of the school will be an hourly based program as Hawaii does not yet have a competency format. The School is currently offering full time and part time programs in Hair Dressing, Nail Technology, Esthetics, Cosmetology, Massage and Beauty Instructor Training. The School is targeting April 2014 to be offering weekend and evening classes. We are excited to be serving the Maui community.
Also new to IBS in 2013 is the launch of a massage program at our Eugene campus. Both full and part time programs are offered. The full time program will be from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Tuesday through Friday while the part time program will be offered from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm Saturdays. The curriculum consists of all the required subjects to qualify to sit both the Oregon licensing requirements as well as the national certifying exams (non-energy). It will be possible to move through the curriculum as well as the hours required to qualify to sit both the State and national exams in approximately 4 months to 5 months for the full time program while the part time program will vary depending on whether there are weekday hours combined with the classes held on Saturdays. During this time, students will move through instruction in the theory subjects such as Anatomy and Physiology, Kinesiology, Massage, etc. Additionally, there will be an operating clinic that will permit valuable experience with the application of theory in a clinic setting. The focus of the program is intended to provide students with hands on experience with massage techniques and clinical practices that will prepare graduates for work.
