The National Association of Career Colleges (NACC) has developed an Esthetics program that addresses national standards in the field.

The program also features the latest in spa treatments and spa customer services and sales. The esthetics profession is one of the fastest growing personal service industries in North America today. The esthetics professional trains and provides personal services in many areas including skin care, nutrition, nail art and design, aromatherapy, pedicures and body sugaring which help clients of all ages look and feel good about themselves. It is a highly personal service and an exciting, rewarding career because of the variety of services given to clients during a typical day. Estheticians provide clients with an opportunity to enhance their total physical and emotional care that is so important in today’s high stress society. Other related training includes: Salon Business Management, Business Communications, Selling of Products and Services, and Employment Portfolio.
The Esthetics and Spa Management with Electrolysis program is also designed to provide the esthetician with enhanced hair removal processes through the use of electrolysis. It will provide the student with a complete and comprehensive understanding of the biological causes of unwanted hair growth. The student will be able to make a practical analysis of the type of hair and skin which will help to identify various disorders that may cause hair growth and in turn determine the strategy for treatment to offer the client. The student will also cover all aspects of recent changes and advances in training and technology. They will have the opportunity to understand and perform electrolysis, thermolysis, and the blend methods of permanently removing hair from both women and men as well as be trained in all aspects of starting and operating an electrolysis clinic.
Upon successful completion of the Esthetics and Spa Management with Electrolysis program, graduates are qualified to work in a variety of Esthetics salons and spa related occupations and are well prepared with the combined study of Esthetics, spa related courses well as customer service and selling.
