Advanced Training for Spa Professionals

Eva has not only been my teacher but an amazing mentor to me for 15 years. When I decided to become an esthetician she was my biggest support and encouragement. After graduating, Eva trained me on all aesthetic techniques. The best part is that I can always go to her with questions about new modalities and techniques as well as practice them because she is up-to-date with the latest treatments. With her 35 years of experience, she is my go to skincare resource.

Three or six month programs are available; each requires a written as well as oral examinations.

You will also learn the key “do’s” and “don’ts” of successful spa management, importance of dress and demeanor, the rules of “spa etiquette”, how to motivate and retain staff, how to deal gracefully with “problem” situations, and how to establish and maintain the highest standards of quality and service in your spa.
