Complete an Esthetics College Program in Just Two Years

Did you know that all you need to apply to Centennial College’s esthetics college-level program (officially known as Esthetician program) is an interest in one of the most rapidly growing areas of the health and wellness service industry; at minimum an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older; and the compulsory English 12C or U, or skills assessment, or equivalent? Once you apply and are accepted, you will enter a program that, in just two years, provides you with the knowledge and skills to be successful in spa applications, skin care and business operations.

In this esthetics college program, you will study from Morningside Campus, which is the most high-tech of Centennial College’s four locations, and boasts a brand new esthetician lab facilities and cutting-edge equipment that are common in today’s wellness and medical spas. This on-campus lab practice is great preparation for the esthetics college program’s field placement. During the on-the-job experience, you will work in highly respected esthetics establishments, interacting with real customers (under the supervision of your instructors) and learning the intricacies of the industry. Please be advised, that you 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 you can be sent out on the esthetics college work placement. 

Additionally, students learn from qualified instructors who have many years of experience in the industry and explore a comprehensive curriculum that incorporates anatomy, physiology, practical applications, product knowledge, sales techniques and business practice. More specially, through lectures and labs, graduates of this esthetics college program 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 national, provincial, industry and other related standards, regulations, policies and procedures; 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, according to current legislation and national, provincial, municipal and industry standards and regulations; 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, taking into account health status and identified needs; 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 in accordance with professional standards and ethics; and determine professional development strategies that lead to the enhancement of work performance and career opportunities and keep pace with industry change.
Once students graduate from Centennial’s esthetics college program, they may obtain jobs at salons, day spas, medi-spas, health clinics, cruise ships and skin care companies.
