Read what NCEA Certified Professionals are saying...


"I have taken a great many hours of continuing education since first being licensed as an esthetician. The information available in the NCEA Certification course surpasses anything else I have done. I am glad it is available and encourage everyone who is serious about their career to get nationally certified." Jane N. Dudik


"Using the study objectives after reading helped a lot. The training manual covers all materials, guidelines and knowledge needed to have a great career. I feel I have a greater understanding of all aspects before jumping into techniques, services and the business." K.Torres

    Those who choose to become NCEA Certified do so for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Commitment to career and the industry
  • Desire to challenge skill level and knowledge base
  • Commitment to personal growth and continuous learning
  • A move to another state where the hours of training are higher than what they received in school
  • State endorsement/reciprocity requirement to attain advanced licensure

The reasons also vary with a person's age, longevity in the field, and future plans. An added benefit is that NCEA Certified estheticians on average, earn more than their non-certified counterparts. Those who are committed to personal growth are more likely to have the self confidence to seek increasing levels of responsibility and, therefore, higher incomes. Regardless of the reason–it’s a good investment in yourself! The NCEA Certified designation could mean the difference between getting or missing out on your next promotion or position. Certification better prepares the skin care professional for today's job market and helps you be better equipped to respond to the constantly changing demands and advances within our profession.

I have found that these certification webinars have been very helpful. They have helped to refresh me on the things I know and helped me to learn what I didn't quite get when working on the knowledge reviews. Great work!
