Train to be an image professional

First Impressions provides professional training for people who want the best possible learning experience, with a wide range of programmes covering core image skills, advanced skills and business building modules. Whether you want to operate as an image consultant, developing a new career, or want to use the skills within your existing role, you’ll find a wide choice of options to fit your needs. You can download Consultant Case Studies to read how others have built a business that suits their objectives and their lifestyle.

We offer modular training, to give you maximum flexibility and choice. You can opt to train intensively or over a period of time, taking advantage of one of our specially priced package options, should these suit your needs. First Impressions is unique in offering a wide range of 'continuing professional development' modules in addition to core skills modules.

The Federation of Image Professionals

First Impressions is regularly audited by the International Federation of Image Consultants and has been a Audited Training Provider (ATP) continually since the scheme’s inception in 1998. This is a status conferred on organisations that comply with FIPI’s stringent requirements.

Choosing to train with an Audited Training Provider means you’re already a step ahead! You’ll be able to join FIPI as a Registered Affiliate, one step up from Affiliate, as you have elected to train with an audited and recognised provider. This recognises that, through First Impressions, you have received the highest quality image skills training available in the UK.

Training with First Impressions will also help you to acquire the FIPI/City & Guilds Masters Award in Image Consultancy when you are ready. Full Master status (of FIPI) immediately confirms your competence and aids credibility with clients. We strongly encourage new consultants to join FIPI and we’ll even pay your Registration Fee when you do so!

Information about FIPI and the FIPI/City and Guilds Joint Award in Image Consultancy is included as part of Foundation Training. Many First Impressions consultants have served or are currently serving on the Federation’s Board or committees.
