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.
