Signing Up

I know what you're wondering,
"Well, this is great, but how do I get enrolled with WorkOne and Beauty school?"
Well it's not a short process but it's actually not hard.
  • First, you'll need to locate your local WorkOne Office. They have Offices all over the region. You can go right on Google and type in "WorkOne" and your nearest office will pop right up. 

  • Next, you'll want to either call and schedule an appointment to see someone about IN-Training/WorkForce training. Or you can go up to your local office (within business hours) and talk to someone right away as well. Whichever route you choose, they are going to tell you the next steps to enrolling with WorkOne. (An academic evaluation may be required for some applicants. This does not count against you, it just helps your advisor know where you're at so they can monitor your progress).

  • Ready to signup for school? Well, when they tell you they need an acceptance letter, that's when you apply at KMISB. From there, we will take you through our admissions process and see if KMISB is right for you. If so, you'll receive an acceptance letter and a start date! If not, that's okay. WorkOne is there to help you find what's right for you. 

  • If you received your acceptance letter, great! Take it back to WorkOne and Finish your process. Keep in touch with your advisor. It takes roughly 2-3 weeks (this time can vary) to get your full approval and for the school to receive your voucher. Keep checking your emails and don't worry. A vast majority of applicants are accepted.

WorkOne and KMISB are here to help. If you have any further questions, contact your local WorkOne office or send us an email at
