The detailed theoretical lessons of your distance learning course contain everything you need to face your future customers confidently and professionally. You finish the individual learning fields with final assignments to consolidate what you have learned. These are evaluated by the team of lecturers and, if necessary, supplemented with comprehensibly formulated comments. 

In the practical part, you will learn with detailed explanations, DIY's and instructions what is important for piercing.

With our well explained step-by-step instructions and the exclusively developed exercise set-ups, you will gain a confident feeling for needle guidance, the use of the right tools and the piercing of various body parts in a wink.

The distance learning course to become a professional piercer includes includes essential knowledge regarding  theoretical and practical hygiene knowledge according to  IfSG, legal background, handling autoclave, ultrasonic cleaner & specific disinfectants, piercing and dermal anchor material science, medical piercing tools, placement of various piercings and microimplants (dermal anchor), proper procedure of an intervention, skin anatomy, initial care and aftercare. In addition, the syllabus includes extensive exercises for the correct handling of Cannula and etc., practical piercing stitch exercises, tasks for consolidation, orders, templates and trader lists (...) from tens of years of piercing experience.

To consolidate what you've learned, you'll get lots of practical training exercises, a step-by-step plan for opening your own studio, and a comprehensive manual including all your notes in digital format. This includes a written summary of the piercing lessons as well as tips on business registration, studio equipment, proper marketing strategies and much more!

The scope of the lessons and the practical exercises of the distance learning course are so extensive that we cannot possibly convey them to you in only 2 days. 

Advantages - Learning for long-term memory:

The profession of a nurse brings with it a high degree of responsibility and the necessary knowledge of skin anatomy, hygiene, legal guidelines, materials and much more. In order to impart this knowledge completely and, above all, to internalise it, no weekend is sufficient. Because in this short time, the course instructors are anxious to impart as much knowledge as possible, which, however, will only reach your short-term memory at best. Here it is decided what you consider important or unimportant. It only enters the long-term memory after about 12 hours. But if you are continuously bombarded with knowledge for several hours, only a fraction of it will make it into your long-term memory . Thus, valuable knowledge is lost and you have to deal with it again. A good example is the "first aid course" that each of us was allowed to do. If you think back and are honest, what did you remember from it despite the practical exercises? Not really much, right?

And right here lies the greatest advantage of a distance learning course... 

- You have the extensive knowledge at your disposal 24 hours a day, 7 days a week,
- you can study at your own pace anywhere without additional costs such as train ticket or hotel fee,
- die Kenntnisse Lerneinheit für Lerneinheit verinnerlichen und
- internalise the knowledge unit by unit and repeat the practical exercises until you are 100% sure that you can apply your knowledge perfectly.

Furthermore, an online course is …

- cheaper than a seminar, because we do not need to rent premises
- reliable, because it is not dependent on a minimum number of participants
- private, because only the chat partner learns about your problems and questions without other participants
being able to listen
- flexible, because you can easily study whenever you want, without having to
spend your weekend.

Disadvantages and how we counteract them:

Of course, there are always two sides to a coin. That is why we do not only want to point out the advantages and conceal the disadvantages. Because we are well aware of these, which is why we try to counteract them.

Learning in a group is better

Most people prefer to learn in groups because it is more fun and you can discuss content together. We are aware of this. That's why we have not only created a Facebook exchange group, but also offer a discounted group course where you can learn and save together with 2 friends.

On-the-shelf phenomenon

With many online courses, you receive numerous PDFs with learning content and exercises via email. You download them, skim through them and then they get forgotten in a folder somewhere on your computer. To prevent your documents and notes from suffering the same fate, the Piercer distance learning school created a kind of virtual seminar room for you, your online campus, which you can access at any time after booking your course. Here you can collect what you have learned, write in your virtual notebook and submit your assignments.

A communicative one-way road

Communication in a seminar is more dynamic, i.e. you ask a question and get your answers directly without having to wait a long time for an email. To ensure dynamic communication in our distance learning course
we offer you an exchange either daily via WhatsApp or twice a week via live chat with one of our lecturers. This means that no question remains unanswered.

The inner couch potato

To successfully complete a distance learning course, you need a high degree of initiative and self-motivation. In the weekend course, your course instructor motivates you. So that you don't lose your enthusiasm, you can always check your learning progress on your online campus and thus continuously strengthen your motivation. 

You can become a piercer no matter where you are: during the consultation hours of the internal live chat and of course permanently via Whatsapp, you will receive direct assistance and answers to your questions from our team of experienced piercers and lecturers.

This guarantees that no questions remain unanswered and you can start your professional future as a professional piercer safely and securely!

After successfully completing all learning fields, achieving a minimum of 57% in the intermediate exams (repetition possible) and completing all specified practical exercises, you will receive your personalised piercer certificate in high-resolution PDF format. Now you have all the expertise you need to open your own studio and pierce piercings professionally.

The prerequisite for this is, of course, that you deal intensively with all subject areas and tasks, practise them and internalise them. We give you detailed instructions in all areas and the necessary knowledge to be able to practice the profession of a piercer professionally, but - only practice makes perfect!

Recommendation: In order to experience the daily routine in a studio and how to deal with customers, we recommend that you complete an internship in an existing studio after your piercing distance learning course.  So you can put what you have learned into practice directly.

The more experience you can gain, the better!

In order to be able to exercise the profession of a piercer, it is essential to responsibly implement the necessary knowledge of hygiene (l. IfSG) in the studio (disinfection, storage, cleaning and sterilisation procedures, etc.) and with the customer (application time, procedure, pre- and aftercare, etc.). The correct and safe handling of specialised tools, needles and instruments must also be learned and internalised. The correct procedure for the formation of wild growth, the treatment and combating of the causes of inflammations, taking into account existing allergies and the determination of the time for further specialist treatment, as well as a large number of obligatory topics, must also be mastered.

Only on this basis is it clearly explained in over 50 animations which anatomical and dermal peculiarities to pay attention to with the individual piercings, which jewellery is used according to experience in order to avoid complications, how to carry out the appropriate aftercare and how to implement each one in practice.

In the practical part, specially developed non-human practice set-ups are used to introduce the needle posture and various practices, the set-up of the workplace is discussed for fluidity and a confident feeling for the practical procedures on various dermal and cartilaginous materials is developed.Your practical exercises will be added to your campus as photos and viewed by the team. If necessary, you will receive further tips and suggestions for improvement via message, Whatsapp or live chat. You are also welcome to contact us with questions about the performance of the individual exercises or start a video chat via Whatsapp or Facebook.

Through these learning fields, which build on each other and are inter-checked, the necessary knowledge is imparted in order to understand and be able to implement the extensive piercing process. The basic prerequisite for this is, of course, that all subject areas and tasks are meticulously dealt with and intensively worked on and implemented. 

The learning and responsible implementation of the necessary technical and background knowledge of the materials, technical hygiene, techniques to be used, risk prevention (including infections), procedures and many other theoretical and practical lessons of the 84-hour course, is the main difference to 2-day (intensive) seminars and Youtube-shown "backyard piercers".

Individual sets:

The distance learning course takes place without time constraints, at your own pace and offers access to all learning fields until successful completion. Thanks to the exclusively online course, you can flexibly organise your time and also effectively train and learn piercing alongside your job, during parental leave or during your studies.

So that you can also read individual lessons at any time after the distance learning course, an animation-free content summary is created at the end of a learning field. These, as well as your personal notes, result in your digital manual in PDF format, printable and downloadable, learning field by learning field.

Of course, you have permanent access to this personalised edition of your handbook in text form, the lecturer chat, our internal Facebook exchange group and the Whatsapp participant support via the online campus.

Materials used for non-human exercise do not, of course, require the same standard as piercing jewellery used for initial use on humans. Exercise materials made of 316L behave in the same way as high-quality materials such as G23. Considering that piercings used for exercise purposes are disposed of after the practical exercise tasks have been completed, a high-quality material is absolutely uneconomical and would raise the price of the starter or exercise set to a disproportionate price segment. 

316L surgical steel was re-approved as a initial use in 2004, but this does not mean that it is designed for this purpose. It ensures a much finer surface finish than comparatively titanium G23. Cave! However, the nickel content must not be ignored. This makes 316L unusable for initial use and should therefore not be used to avoid risk.

Due to their instability, acrylic balls offer a tooth-friendly alternative, especially for piercings in the oral cavity. Experience shows that, especially with freshly pierced oral piercings, the probability of suffering dental damage is significantly higher if a metal ball is accidentally bitten on.

Furthermore, an exercise set that does not contain the various alternatives available on the market would not do justice to the learning effect. How else could a amateur learn how to work with the different materials, what advantages and disadvantages they offer and what to look out for when using them?

We are here for you even after you have completed the piercer training and received your piercer-certificate and are always there to help and advise you.
