Want to excel in beauty school? Choose a program that uses the digital learning platform from Milady

For nearly a century, Milady has led the way in beauty school education. So it makes sense that the best schools would trust Milady to develop the best digital learning platform—one that’s fun and enhances in-class instruction. Say hi to CIMA by Milady.

Why should I even care about digital learning?

We get it. You’re going into a high-touch industry where you work with the public. How can learning something online possibly help you prepare?

Here’s the thing: Digital learning doesn’t replace in-class instruction or the hours you spend in the student salon. Instead, it elevates and enhances what you learn in the classroom. With digital learning, you learn more—and you learn better. All while having fun.

Also, when you graduate from beauty school, the in-salon experience will also be digital when it comes to booking appointments, payments, client notes, and much more! So, it’s best to prepare for that now.

Does this mean as long as a school has a digital learning platform, it’s a good program to consider?

Short answer: No. That’s because not all digital learning platforms are created equal. The platform a school uses absolutely matters and should influence your decision. 

Why? Well, imagine using a platform that only works on a desktop, not your phone. Or imagine a platform that’s ugly and hard to navigate and makes you dread doing homework. Before you make a commitment to a school, ask about the digital platform it uses. Better yet: request a demo so you can see it for yourself.

What if the school I'm interested in doesn't use CIMA by Milady and/or it's only offering a print-based curriculum?
If the school is using a different digital learning platform, ask the admissions counselor to give you a demo of the platform. Things to think about as you evaluate it: Is it easy to navigate? Is it highly visual? Does it offer Chat, real-time grading, and interactive quizzes and activities? Is it available across devices? Does it have a mobile app? Talk to current students and ask them what they think of the platform. The best digital learning platforms are easy to use and make learning fun—not harder.

If the school is strictly using print, ask the admissions counselor if the school plans to go digital and what the timeline is. Keep in mind that most state licensing exams are computer-based. A digital learning platform will better prepare you for this important exam that stands between you and your career.
