									           Esthetics College Program Offers Respected Education

If you are looking to attend an esthetics college program that not only offers you the practical practice
you need to be field-ready upon graduation but also the theory behind the procedures you will perform,
consider Centennial College’s Esthetician offering. In just two years, students graduate with an Ontario
College Diploma and know-how to: perform a variety of specialized body and skin care treatments
following correct procedures and precautions, and supporting client needs; use a range of specialized
equipment and products; apply relevant knowledge of anatomy, physiology and histology to the provision
of specialized esthetic treatments and services; adhere to health, safety, sanitation and infection
prevention control guidelines; identify business skills and activities required for the successful
establishment and operation of a small esthetic business in a salon or spa environment; select and
recommend the use of esthetic products and product ingredients to clients; establish and maintain
professional relationships in adherence to standards and ethics associated with the profession; develop
customer service strategies that meet and adapt to individual needs and expectations; and determine
professional development strategies that lead to the enhancement of work performance and career
opportunities and keep pace with industry change.

With all the knowledge obtained in the esthetics college offering, Centennial College graduates find
employment in spas and salons, or in health clinics in conjunction with dermatologists, plastic surgeons
and other healthcare providers. Opportunities also exist on cruise ships and spas overseas. Some
graduates may choose to work as product representatives and skin care consultants. Many estheticians
choose to be self-employed in their own businesses.

In order to get them from novices to professionals, the esthetics college offering employs state-of-the art
esthetician lab facilities and cutting-edge equipment that is common in today’s wellness and medical spas.
In these facilities, students take courses that balance theory and hands-on application to learn the proper
use of specialized equipment and 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. Other topics include: anatomy, physiology, pathology and histology;
practical applications, product knowledge, sales techniques and business practice.

Esthetics college program students then apply what they have learned in the school’s student clinic (which
is supervised by qualified faculty members) and to a real world experience through field placements in the
best spas in the city.

To apply for Centennial College’s esthetics college program, students must have completed at minimum
an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older; and have
finished the compulsory English 12C or U, or skills assessment, or equivalent. Please note that after
admission but prior to each program field placement students are required to: obtain an annual
clear police check with vulnerable sector screening; complete immunization requirements (immunization
review form); successfully complete and annually renew a recognized course in CPR (Healthcare provider
level); successfully complete a recognized course in standard first aid.
