Graduation and Documents Awarded
The last hours of the final day of the Course are devoted to the graduation process. All instructions and applications for the Virginia State Board Test are given out, and each student is guided through the process of filling these out. The final grades, record sheets, and report cards are given. Students are requested to fill out a Course Evaluation Form. This is used to improve our offerings and methods of presentation.
Job Placement and Employment Assistance
The Career Services Assistant will make every attempt to assist students with job placement upon graduation. Business owner and hiring companies are invited as guest speakers to meet and potentially hire our students. Placement assistance services usually begin at the midpoint of a student’s program. At this time, students have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a Career Specialist to receive counseling and assistance in preparing a resume, developing effective interview skills and in implementing a successful job search strategy.
Upon graduation, students will be given the names, addresses and telephone numbers of owners/managers that have job openings in the graduates’ related field. Former graduates are also welcome to employment assistance. This profession is a growing industry in the United States. There are numerous job opportunities in salons, clinics, spas, health clubs, stress reduction centers and sport centers. All though many students are successful in starting their own businesses.
Although every effort is made to secure job opportunities for AVI graduates, either upon the completion of training or at a later date, AVI does not guarantee employment.
Courses are based on requirements from the State Regulating Boards. AVI Career Training will adequately prepare the students to pass the Virginia state board exam upon graduation.
Transfer of Credits
Students with credits from other institutes will have to pass a written and a practical exam to be placed in the appropriate class, there is a $100.00 fee for the exam. Transferring students will need to authorize a formal transcript from their previous school to be sent to AVI Career Training. Students wishing to transfer from one AVI Career Training program to another need to withdraw from their initial program and enroll in the new program. Students must pay their balance in full in order for their completion documents to be released.
Transferability of hours/ credit to other institutes is at the discretion of the new school.
