Esthetics College Program Combines Business and Esthetics

Having knowledge of human physiology, pathology and histology as well as products is very important when entering the esthetics field. Centennial College’s esthetics college program takes it a step further by not only covering these topics but also equipping its students with business knowledge. As a result, after two years, students of this esthetics college offering are able 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, taking into account health status and identified need; 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; determine professional development strategies that lead to the enhancement of work performance and career opportunities and keep pace with industry change.

But how does this esthetics college program, officially known as the Esthetician undertaking, prepare students? First and foremost, qualified instructors who have many years of experience in the industry and explore a comprehensive curriculum that includes anatomy, physiology, practical applications, product knowledge, sales techniques and business practice, lead the courses. Secondly the curriculum includes incorporation of Centennial College’s state-of-the-art esthetician lab facilities and cutting-edge equipment that are common in today’s wellness and medical spas, with specific topics that include: skin care theory, skin care practices, manicures and pedicures, spa health and safety, product chemistry and advanced ingredients, professional relationships, spa business and more.

To ensure that they get to apply what they have learned in the esthetics college offering, are able to practice in the school’s student clinic (supervised by qualified faculty) and partake in field placements in the best spas in the city. Please be advised, that students are required to 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 esthetician work placement.
