What’s Included in the Price?

Our Course Includes:

  • 12 Units covering every area of personal finance and career success, from credit scores, to resume writing, to car insurance. Each Unit has 5 short Lessons, ranging in length between 6 and 10 minutes. 
  • 4 Bonus Units on career success and starting your own business.
  • Instructor Welcome Video to help all instructors, even those with little financial education to easily and effectively teach the course to the classroom.
  • Quick Start Video to play the very first day, highlighting what students need to focus on first. 
  • Instructor’s Guide complete with sample lesson plans, questions for classroom discussions, fun facts, suggested homework, quizzes and answers for each section of each Unit.
  • One copy of the Student Guide to assist the instructor in following along with the students. 
  • Monthly Group Phone Coaching providing you and your students with the ability to speak directly with the creators of the course. You can also interact with other schools. 
  • Online Access with Quiz Tracking Function to all the videos online to watch anywhere, anytime. The online component has a quiz function; a short, 4 question quiz pops up after the video. As students complete videos and quizzes their progress is tracked in a chart. 
  • Quarterly Instructor Phone Coaching to interact directly with the course creators as well as other instructors. This group coaching call is available only to Instructors.
  • A weekly email newsletter sent to your school and to every enrolled student. These short ongoing emails highlight new ideas, websites and tips and tie them to current events.
Yes. There is an annual renewal fee charged to the school. This pays for access to the website, and the group coaching calls. We are also constantly updating the videos to address new rules, regulations and of course, opportunities.
We require each school to purchase one copy of our Student Guide, for every enrolled student. Schools can purchase either a digital copy or a paper copy.
Unfortunately no. We strive to make this course affordable and flexible for you and your students. However we won’t trade the educational impact for cost savings. As you will see, the Student Guide has several “take aways” that students will use long after they graduate. It contains documents like: Apartment Rental Checklist, Car Buying Checklist, Sample Resume and Cover Letter, Customized Budget and over 100 pages of forms and checklists they can fill out and use long after they graduate.
When your school enrolls in the Getting Loaded Program, they are mailed a complete copy of the course plus a workbook for every student (if you choose to purchase paper copies of the workbooks.) Your instructor will receive personal username and password to enter the Members Only areas of the website, providing them privileged access to additional instructor resources such as quizzes and answer keys for each lesson. We will also provide every student with their username and password to enter the site, where they can access all of the videos 24 hours a day from a computer, phone, or tablet device.
As you know, new legislation holds the school liable if the student falters in their loan payments. What’s more, an unsuccessful student reflects poorly on the school. The good news is that the Getting Loaded System stays with your students, long after graduation. When your school enrolls, every student is given a username and password to access the site. While they are enrolled in your school they will receive a weekly email, keeping them up to date on current events. When they graduate, students receiving the weekly email will be transferred to our graduated list, where they will receive a weekly email with the latest career strategies, loan repayment advice, and financial tips to ensure their success. Best of all, this additional service is free!

We differ in many ways, but here are a few we are most proud of: 

  • We’re a small company. So we deliver the service of a small owner operated business. When we host our monthly calls or quarterly instructor calls the designers of the course are the ones on the call! 
  • Our course is flexible. Our course can be integrated into any curriculum. It can be used 8 minutes a day, 20 minutes a week, or 1 hour a month, or any other way that works for your school. You can go thru some of the lessons together in class and students can complete the other lessons online.
  • We’re right here. All phone coaching is taught by the Getting Loaded founders, Peter Bielagus and Tamra Nashman. The course was written by Peter and Tamra and all videos are hosted by Peter and Tamra. 
  • It’s fun. While we took the time to have financial and career experts edit our course, our course was also edited by comedians. You’ll see jokes and pop culture references sprinkled throughout the course.
  • It’s cosmetology specific. Other courses provide general personal finance education, trying to target, truck drivers, students and heart surgeons with one course. Ours is the only course specific to this industry. 
  • We cater to all learning styles. Nowadays people want to learn in their own way, in their own time. The Getting Loaded system caters to that. Schools can follow the traditional curriculum provided or individual students can choose the subjects most important to them. The online videos can be watched anywhere anytime. 
  • Not just learning, doing. One big problem with most financial education programs is that it is too much theory. While we have plenty of academic content, we also offer practical tools, like our Car Buying Checklist, that students can use right away.
  • Ongoing access. Our course stays with students five years after they graduate.

Our school has a rolling enrollment; how does your program account for that?

Whenever you begin a new class, simply notify us with the names of the students. We will then send each student his or her own unique username and password along with a digital copy of the Student Guide. The students can then log on at any time. If you choose to purchase paper copies of the Student Guide, those will be sent as well. Students can access the videos at any time, so regardless of when they come to your school, they fit right into our program!

The Getting Loaded program is an annual program but you can cancel at the end of the annual period. Any students enrolled at the time of cancellation will still have access to the site via their own personal username and password for the remainder of their five year program. Students will still be able to receive our weekly newsletters, regardless of the cancelation.

The price is per school, plus the cost of the student workbooks. We offer discounts to companies that own more than one school.

No problem at all. Our system is a plug and play system. The course can be watched as a class or students can use it individually. Our Instructors Guide has all the review questions and answers to provide the instructor assistance. Don’t forget, we are available every month via our live phone calls for students to ask us questions directly.

We are in support of any financial education efforts. However, after doing this for 9 years at learning institutions all over the world, we’ve found that education not only needs to be delivered, it needs to received. That’s why our program caters specifically to the needs of cosmetology students. It includes both learning exercises that will build their financial knowledge AND resources they can use immediately, literally the first day of the course. In terms of price, our program costs less than $2 per student, per month after the first year.

That’s why the Getting Loaded Program is 100% flexible. You can go through it as a class activity in short bursts of as little as 8 minutes a day. Or you can simply offer it as a classroom resource for students go through on their own?

To ensure your students meet their financial commitments and succeed in their careers.
