When I explored Shauna and her company on the internet I reached out to tell her how much I admire her modern approach in an otherwise very old-fashioned industry. A few days later we both hopped on a plane and met in Boston. By the end of this meeting it was clear that we share so many values, respect each other for our innovative approach and have a similar point of view about state-of-the-art image consulting. It took us more than an year though to finally join forces. Shauna still claims it was me who wanted to write a book first. I refuse to believe that I’ve ever said that … but you are welcome to order “The Image of Leadership” on Amazon if you’d like to …
My iPhone, my laptop, a clicker. Still today, I refuse to buy color drapes.

THREE REASONS TO REGISTER FOR THE COURSE
ONLINE LEARNING IS HOT; FOR A GOOD REASON. IF DONE RIGHT IT CAN PRODUCE GREAT RESULTS
Online training providers within this industry have a bad reputation. Why? Because many training providers sell downloadable pdf’s and let you believe this is “e-learning”. Far from that. You deserve better. That’s why we offer:
- Interactive video and audio based training content
- One-on-one mentorship sessions during the course
- Step-by-step instructional workbooks, checklists and worksheets
- Library of downloadable resources, tools and links
- Private online community for students and interaction with your instructors

GET SOME OF YOUR MOST PRESSING QUESTIONS ANSWERED IN OUR FAQ
No problem at all – we just recommend starting with the personal image consulting certification. We built our personal image consulting course assuming that you are at the ground level, but seasoned business experts will also walk away with relevant industry specific knowledge. We give you step-by-step, easy to follow instructions for getting your business started, learning how to perform consultations, and how to market your business. In addition, we provide you with the resources necessary to do all of those things without having to hunt them down. This will not only save you time but thousands of dollars as well!
In the Personal Consulting Course and the Corporate Consulting Course, we discuss color basics as they relate to the topics at hand. We provide you with enough education and curriculum to be able to work with your clients, effectively. We do NOT, however, show you how to perform the custom color analysis consult with color drapes because this has to be taught live. We can recommend potential providers if this is something you’re interested in.
Yes, we are recognized by AICI as a training provider in image consulting. You can join AICI as a “General Member” with no previous experience or education in image consulting. However, AICI requires you to have 20 hours of professional training to become a “Skilled Member” of the organization. Upon completion of our program, you will receive a letter and certificate of completion stating that you received professional training hours, which count toward if not fully cover and surpass the needed credits. If you are pursuing the First Level Certification for AICI, your SIP Certification School training will be recognized by AICI as long as you show proof of registration for our course, a copy of your certificate, and the letter stating what AICI Core Competencies you have learned including the acquired number of training hours. We provide you with each of these things.
This is the industry’s most sought-after program. This is not just an education. Shauna and Sylvie are just as motivated to help you become an expert business owner as they are to help you become a credible image consultant. It is the ONLY certification program that combines the vast knowledge of two internationally-known consultants who are recognized in and outside the industry for their business expertise. In addition, we’re providing you with the most resourceful tools, digital applications, and modern approach available worth more than $20,000.
Perfect! We think that’s a smart move. We’ve worked with several business owners who are trying to combine image consulting with their existing business. We’ll show you how to mesh the two seamlessly and you may pick up a few extra marketing ideas that you may not have thought of before. What a great way to provide more value to your client base while also boosting your credibility.
Yes – we only offer a payment plan during early bird registration which runs about 2 – 4 months prior to the class starting.
There’s nothing that will set you back more than feeling overwhelmed. This is why we only provide access to one module each week. Once the module is available, it is there permanently so you can access it at any time if you fall behind. However, you will not get access to it ahead of schedule.
We know that some of you prefer to have everything upfront. If following this weekly schedule is not ideal, this may not be the right certification program for you.
We hear you, a certification is a massive investment and you want to be sure you’re prepared. However, speaking from experience, we know that at some point you have to make the leap. The justifications for not starting are oftentimes symptoms of fear that are prolonging the success you could have sooner. We’d love to see you start doing what you love as soon as possible.
Our image consulting online certification courses are only offered twice a year and you can see the course schedule listed on each course page.
Unfortunately, no. The program comes as a total package.
The courses will require you to have sound, internet access, and the ability to download word documents and PDFs.
The Personal Image Consulting Course is accessible via laptop, desktop, ipad, and iphone.
The Menswear, Personal Branding, and Corporate Image Consulting Course is only accessible via laptop and desktop.
We believe strongly that to train on the technical image consulting skills AND the appropriate business building skills you’ll need to be successful long-term, that our curriculum needs to span several weeks. This is why we made a very strategic decision to NOT offer live courses as we would only be able to cover so much in a 7 – 10 day time period.
In addition, we serve students all over the world and want to make our curriculum as accessible as possible while keeping your investment low. Instead of spending money on travel and accommodations for a certification, we want you to put that money instead into your new and growing business.
Our online courses are much like classroom courses, except the delivery of the learning materials and all interaction happens online. You will receive video lessons and in each lesson, Shauna & Sylvie will explain the relevant content and give you instructions on how you can bring the theoretical information into life via practical actions steps. You’ll receive worksheets that help you through this process, and you can also download each lesson as audio and transcribed text version.
The course is built to be easy and self-explanatory to navigate. However, on the course start page you’ll find a short video with instructions to make sure you’ll find everything you need in order to have a great learning experience.
You’ll be able to download all lessons as audio files or transcribed text files. In addition you can download all video slides, worksheets and many of the free bonuses.
For each lesson, you should plan around 20-30 minutes. This includes watching a video, which is usually anywhere between 5 to 20 minutes long, downloading the materials and working on the specific tasks. Each module contains around 5 to 12 lessons. Some participants watch one lesson per day, others watch all videos at once. In total, plan to spend at least 8 – 15 hours a week on the course (depending on your learning style and how fast you put the knowledge to work).
No. You’ll work on your own time and schedule. This gives you flexibility and the responsibility to stay on task.
For the Personal and Corporate Image Consulting Certifications, you have six weeks to complete the course. For the menswear and personal branding course, you have three weeks to complete the course.
No. The course is structured and built on a strong, doable and proven curriculum that allows you to work through all units within the assigned schedule.
Once you have access to the course you’ll be able to access the bonus material in the Resource Hub of the course.
We accept PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards. Please do not send cash or checks through the mail. We do not accept cash or check payments for any courses or services.
No. Our goal is to make high-quality online courses available at the best price, and to treat every customer equally. There’s no guessing or uncertainty around what you are buying and how much it costs.
No. We do not offer any financial aid. One way to receive financial aid might be to reach out to your bank, family, or even run a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for your education. Occasionally, we have participants who get the course or parts of the registration fee sponsored by employers or other institutions. However, this is something you will have to discuss with your employer, and we cannot help at this point.
Policies are the same as for classroom events. As soon as you have started the course and/or downloaded materials we cannot refund the course fee.
