As a Certified Sisterlocks Consultant or Trainee, you are part of a growing network of professionals who are well trained to address the natural hair care needs of their clients. Although you are not an employee, you have signed a binding agreement stating that you will offer the Sisterlocks system in the way it was taught to you and in no other way. This is your assurance to clients that you are a legitimate representative of the Sisterlocks brand.
To be considered "In good standing" you must be active, uninterrupted, for at least one year with no unresolved complaints against you. Remaining active and well informed is crucial to maintaining that professionalism. Here are some resources that will help you preserve your active status:
Active / Inactive Timelines and Deadlines:
Are you a Trainee? Your Active period is two years from your original training date. (Example: if trained March 18-21/2021 the active period expires March 31st of 2023) If you do not file your certification within that period you are considered “Late.” You can still certify in the normal way for up to 6 months, but you must pay the $50 late fee. If you still do not certify by the close of that 6 month grace period you are considered INACTIVE. If this happens, in order to certify you must FIRST take a Refresher Class and prepay all fees, including class fees, late fees and the cost of certifying. (COURTESY EXTENSION POLICY)
