You have the flexibility to work from a comfort of your own home, a café, a beach or any other place with internet connection. If there are practical hours required to complete the course, you will have an option to complete them at the clinic that we partner with or where you work. Please discuss your options in detail with our training director.
Do you offer job placement assistance?
Even though we do not offer that, we do everything in our power to help our graduates find a suitable place to work through our professional network.
What sort of financial aid available?
It is a private training and therefore no government educational loan is available through us, but we can still offer some payment options to help you. The receipt that you receive after graduation can be applied to your business taxes, but not personal.
Will the program prepare me to immediately offer advanced treatments like lasers, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, acne treatment etc.?
Yes, this program is designed to prepare you to offer your services to clinics and clients right after graduation if you successfully complete the practical part of the training. You can also use your practice mentor and trainers as your references.
What is the average background of the instructors I will learn from?
Anyone who trains for Aesthetise is a professional clinical or medical esthetician with at least 5 years of experience in the industry. All our trainers are required to follow the professional trends via attending seminars, conferences, webinars and trade shows.
Do students work with recognized professional skincare or brand neutral product on the clinic floor?
We select only clinical brands to work with, those that offer a wide range of products and advance formulations. But the training is designed so that the students would focus on ingredients rather than on the brand itself, this way they are able to work effectively with any clinical brand.
