The Esthetics Technology curriculum provides competency-based knowledge, scientific/artistic principles, and hands-on fundamentals associated with the art of skin care. The curriculum provides a simulated salon environment, which enables students to develop manipulative skills.
Course work includes instruction in all phases of professional esthetics technology, business/human relations, product knowledge, and other related topics.
An essential element in the success of the College’s Esthetics program is the opportunity for students to complete their clinical practice in a simulated salon that serves as a learning laboratory. Through supervised hands-on interactions with clients, students practice and demonstrate mastery of competencies needed for successful employment in the field. Former students have rated this real-life experience as critical in the mastery of professional skills and clinical procedures as well as awareness about the role of the Esthetician in the work environment.
Graduates should be prepared to take the North Carolina Cosmetology State Board Licensing Exam and upon passing be licensed and qualify for employment in beauty and cosmetic/skin care salons, as a platform artist, and in related businesses.
