What You Will Learn

Your instructor will cover a rigorous regimen of education: two weeks of Beauty Treatments education in both theory and practical skill and one week of Facial Electrical education in both theory and practical skill that will focus on the machines used in a spa environment.

Course Requirements

Upon completion of the three weeks of training, students will take additional time to complete and submit a comprehensive series of detailed case studies, based on treatments they have provided to a group of clients.   Once the case studies are completed, the student will be scheduled for a theory examination in both disciplines as well as perform a series of practical treatments under the supervision of an ITEC approved instructor/moderator.

Upon successful completion of all requirements, ITEC will issue the two international diplomas: Beauty Treatments and Facial Electrical.

Eligibility and Requirements

Students must hold an esthetician license or other professional licensing, including Cosmetologists (or equivalent professional governing body designation), Licensed Registered Nurse (RN), Licensed Practicing Nurse (LPN), Physicians’ Assistant (PA), Physician, or Massage Therapist. Exceptions may be made for graduate students in the above fields or in their last quarter of study.
