New York, NY (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
The Studio for Image Professionals (SIP), a market leader in image consulting training programs, announces the addition of a new co-owner, the launch of three new certification programs, and the formulation of the “Best in Industry” awards. These changes come on the heels of SIP founder, Shauna Mackenzie, joining forces with New York-based image consultant, trainer and author, Sylvie di Giusto.
For the past three years, SIP has certified image consultants globally through its personalized live and online certification courses, offering aspiring consultants the opportunity to train, launch, and establish their business in just six weeks. With the addition of di Giusto as co-owner, SIP now offers students the flexibility of getting certified online or live in New York City and the choice of acquiring the personal or corporate image consulting certification.
“Forming a partnership with Sylvie is one of the best things that could happen for the advancement of our industry,” according to Mackenzie. “The industry is hungry for up-to-date and relevant educational options that cover the full range of knowledge aspiring consultants need to be successful. This partnership paves the way in addition to setting some industry standards that have been previously lacking.”
The first result of this strategic partnership is the development of the only comprehensive online learning environment in their industry. Their e-learning platform combines interactive video, audio, text, books, discussion forums, assessments, quizzes, homework, and live sessions, allowing students the opportunity to have the same benefits they would in a live classroom.
“Today’s announcement is another solid step in our journey to modernize the image consulting industry and to provide students with top-notch solutions needed for both traditional and online learning,” says di Giusto. “Shauna is the perfect partner to fully recognize a need for an audience-driven learning platform that combines a comprehensive curriculum and course design with a high level of content engagement and usability.”
In addition to these new offers, SIP is also the first and only training provider that recognizes the achievements within the image consulting industry with the launch of their “Best in Industry” awards. The bronze, silver, and gold awards are granted to students who surpass specific industry requirements set by SIP and showcase a commitment to industry excellence.
