She enjoyed renowned speakers and presentations that apply credits towards her continuing education. Stephanie is in an elite circle of Certified Permanent Cosmetic Professionals in the State of Arizona.

The field of permanent cosmetics is NOT a regulated industry in the State of Arizona. In order to keep credentials, providers must obtain a certain amount of continuing education credits every year and the Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals (SPCP) regulates these qualifications.
