									                Esthetics College Program Makes Beauty Its Business

Do you have an interest in working in the beauty industry? Do work places such as spas and
salons dermatologists, plastic surgeons and other healthcare providers’ offices and cruise ships
appeal to you? Have you completed an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent,
or mature student status (19 years or older) as well as the compulsory English Grade 12 C or U
or equivalent, or skills assessment? If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, you may want to
consider applying for the esthetics college program at Centennial College, which is officially
known as the Esthetician program.

Having what it takes to work in what is considered to be one of the most rapidly growing areas
of the health and wellness service industry takes the type of training Centennial College provides
its students. That’s because this two-year esthetics college program gives its students the
knowledge and skills for spa applications and skin care as well as business operations. But these
aren’t the only aspects that make this esthetics program, which results in an Ontario College
Diploma, stand out.

Qualified instructors who have many years of experience in the industry, explore a
comprehensive curriculum that incorporates anatomy, physiology, practical applications, product
knowledge, sales techniques, skin care theory, skin care practices, manicures and pedicures, spa
health and safety, introduction to wellness, and much more. Teaching of many topics is
conducted in brand new esthetician lab facilities, using cutting-edge equipment that is common
in today’s wellness and medical spas. In addition, these labs allow instructors to teach the
proper use of specialized products, as well as how to apply knowledge of business operations,
exceptional customer service and diverse population needs to daily operations of an esthetic
business in a controlled salon or spa environment.

To complement in-school practice this esthetics college program gives students the chance to
practice in the school’s student clinic (which is supervised by qualified faculty) and partake in
field placements in the best spas in the city. Please be advised that students must have
completed a standard first aid and CPR (healthcare provider level) course, a vulnerable sector
background police check, and an immunization review form before they can be sent out on the
esthetician work placement.

Upon graduating from the esthetics college program, students are able to: perform a variety of
specialized body and skin care treatments following correct procedures and precautions, and
supporting client needs (including but not limited to facials, manicures, pedicures, hair removal
and make-up applications); use a range of specialized equipment and products, in compliance
with established standards, regulations, policies and procedures; select and recommend the use
of esthetic products and product ingredients to clients, taking into account health status and
identified needs; develop customer service strategies that meet and adapt to individual needs
and expectations in accordance with professional standards and ethics; determine professional
development strategies that lead to the enhancement of work performance and career
opportunities and keep pace with industry change; and more.
