The review below is 100% accurate. This is one of those predatory schools you've heard about on the news. They take your money then kick you out and keep the money. BUYER BEWARE! You will NOT make it through the program. Go to one of the other schools in Richmond and enjoy your experience. You will not at this school!

Laura Todd accompanied by two of her attorneys from Troutman Saunders Law Firm went before the DPOR Board on May 12 2014 during a public, open meeting for a consent order which a formal disciplinary action after completion of an investigation by DPOR investigators Amy Chappell and Randy Brooks. There was sufficient evidence that Laura Todd/IAME was found to be in violation of several items. A consent order was signed by Laura Todd and it was voted on by the DPOR Board to accept it. The vote was in favor of the consent order, she was in violation of all the items in the consent order. Laura Todd's attorneys did use the 5 minutes allowed to request the consent order be thrown out, finding her not guilty. Attorneys requests obviously not considered and Laura Todd did not speak on her behalf.

To view the full consent order which is public and posted on the internet by googling keywords it can be found. Or copy and paste this link. Also you can go on DPOR of Virginia website going to "Townhall Meeting"

On August 11, 2014, American Spirit Institute (a skin care school located in Richmond & Williamsburg Virginia) was on the Virginia Board of Cosmetology agenda for failing to teach in accordance with the board approved curriculum.

The DPOR investigators found that American Spirit Institute has only been providing students with 300 hours of instruction, not the required 600 hours.

American Spirit Institute was found in violation and found that it failed to teach in accordance with the board approved curriculum.

Richard A. Sells, the President of American Spirit Institute admitted to the violation of failing to teach in accordance with the board approved curriculum. Richard A. Sells. President of American Spirit Institute did not appear before the board nor did anyone appear on their behalf. Richard A. Sells. President of American Spirit Institute was ordered to pay a $1400.00 fine for violation 18 VAC 41-70-280.A 2.

What will happen to all of the graduates & current students who did not receive 300 hours of the required 600 hours, required by law.

American Spirit Institute admitted to violating the law by only offering 300 hours instead of the required 600. see this page: http://166.67.70.234/rlvi/inc/templates/FileDispatcher.cfm?f=2014-00452_1267000022.pdf
