The 600-Hour Esthetician Licensure program will prepare you to take the state board exams, to become licensed in Esthetics, and to become an amazing asset to the professional community.

2. Correspondence work, 150 hours

3. Practicum & Clinic, 250 hours

Tuition: $8,400, which includes Dermaplaning, Microdermabrasion & Chemical Peel courses.

The 600-Hour Esthetician Licensure Program can be completed in Six months. We have three different options for the program:  Weekends (6 months), Weekday Immersion (5 weeks + Clinic hours), or Weekday Morning Classes (4 months + Clinic hours).

The correspondence work (at home) includes reading, homework, and preparation for state boards, and the rest of the courses are in-class, via lecture and clinic.

Some of the Practicum hours could be completed as an Internship at a location outside of the school and/or with a Licensed Esthetician, Cosmetologist, or Dermatologist, outside of class.

Our 600-Hour program combines the best in Medical, Corrective Skincare techniques and the best in Natural and Holistic Skincare techniques. Our program will set the student up for success to pass the state board exams required for licensure, and the Practicum/Clinic hours will give the student the confidence and skills necessary to have a results-oriented skincare career!

Occupational Objective: The graduate will have enough knowledge and experience to take and potentially pass the state board exams in Colorado in order to apply for an Esthetics License with the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA).

After becoming a Licensed Esthetician in Colorado, the graduate should be able to attain an entry-level position as an Esthetician at a spa, wellness center, and medical center, as well as have the skill-set to become self-employed in a private practice.

Practicum & Clinic, 250 Hrs

Practice makes perfect, especially practice with direct supervision from a licensed esthetician. An integral part of the learning process for an esthetician is to practice and receive proper feedback and to practice with many different skin types and conditions. We have a Student Clinic for students to begin practicing with community clientele, but to also have instructor supervision and assistance during the practice.  If a student cannot always make our designated clinic hours, we can assist you in earning those hours outside of class.
