When hairstylist Shelton Ogle opened his first salon at 21, he quickly realized the secret to maximizing the number of gorgeous haircuts he could render: a well-trained staff. So two years later, he opened his beauty school, Ogle School of Hair, Skin & Nails. Now in its 40th year, the school leverages its accrued experience and knowledge to teach aesthetic arts ranging from skincare to hair coloring. In the school’s salons, students practice on the public, cutting hair into elegant, customized shapes, texturizing strands with relaxers and perms, and highlighting nails with manicures, rather than with rings with built-in strobe lights. A testament to Shelton’s success in building his vision, he was even able to develop a weekly show for PBS about the beauty industry.

Despite its name, nine types of firearms instruction serve as the hallmark of Your CHL Texas. Yes, the staff specializes in courses that qualify students to apply for a concealed-handgun license, but it also expands the menu with specializations such as ladies-only handgun classes and private lessons. NRA courses include the popular Basic Pistol and First Steps courses. Classes can also be taught out of a student's home if there at least three people attending the class.
Though most kids dream of one day being a pilot, very few ever get a chance behind the cockpit. The team at American Flyers seeks to change that by training students to obtain a pilot’s license or merely try out their skills in an introductory lesson. The flight schools’ numerous locations feature flight-training software, online courses, and pigeon mentors to grant students numerous ways to learn how to fly.
Since Stacy C. Notley founded The Manning Group in 1983, his message of debt- and credit-management has been shared on the radio, in books, and from lecterns at his workshops. The Comedy Credit Clinic, one of his popular seminars, leads homebuyers and homeowners around the often confusing world of credit. Attesting to the clinic's quality, it doubles as an approved continuing-education course for realtors and insurance agents. Notley supplements the group lessons with personalized services such as credit analysis, credit repair, debt management, and junk-drawer searches for nearly expired gift cards.

Pushing beyond pure leadership of boot-camp classes, instructors supplement workouts with nutritional guidance and lifestyle advice. In the interest of safe and easy mirroring, coaches emphasize clean technique rather than speed or the benefits of cloning.
