Exciting and important changes are happening to Clover Park Technical College’s Esthetic Sciences Program. In 2013, the Washington State Legislature passed a law requiring changes in Esthetic Sciences programs. We have changed our program to prepare students for the Master Esthetician License and an Associate of Applied Science Degree. Students enrolling in our program should attend one of our program information sessions, held twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday in Building 8, Room 319.
The program prepares students for entry-level positions in salons, day spas or medical settings such as medi-spas, dermatologist, or plastic surgery centers. Future employment may include esthetician, sales representative for product lines, or make-up artists.
Approx. # of Quarters: 4
Estimated Cost: $9,577.64
Admission Dates: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer quarters
Prerequisites: High School Diploma or High School Equivalency Exam required. Attendance at a program information session is required prior to admission into the program.
Students participate in realistic training through the student-operated clinic on campus. Students perform services on live models. Services performed include facials, temporary hair removal, makeup, body wrap techniques, chemical peels, electricity therapies, and microdermabrasion. Curriculum includes all related first aid, safety, and sanitation procedures.
This program is approximately four quarters in length, depending on the time students need to satisfactorily complete all graduation requirements.
Included in this program are academic courses in communication, quantitative reasoning, and social sciences that provide knowledge and abilities upon which technical skills are built and personal development enhanced.
Students pursuing an AAT or AAS-T degree must complete all College degree requirements prior to graduation. This includes courses that meet the capstone project, diversity, and computer literacy requirements.
