Prior to any tours of The Aesthetic Institute we like to schedule a 1:1 phone call or a virtual zoom meeting. We use that time to review all the pertinent information with you and answer all your questions. After that if you are interested in scheduling an in person visit we will be happy to provide you with a tour of The Aesthetic Institute. We also plan to organize a few Open House events throughout the year.
The Certified Medical Aesthetician course was designed to provide an all inclusive education and clinical practice which will be completed within a 3 month time frame.
The tuition for the Certified Medical Aesthetician Course is $20,000 and we have a couple of payment options available that students can choose from.
The short answer is YES! The Aesthetic Institute is the only program that provides you with a complete education, a Medical Aesthetics Certification and then a guaranteed employment opportunity. You’ll be able to use all of our facilities to offer your patients more services and treatment options without any of the typical overhead costs that other providers would incur.
We aim to have a class size ranging from 8 – 10 students, believing this is the optimal and most advantageous size for our students. Our goal is to have appropriately sized classes resulting in more individualized attention, increased participation, and better communication between the instructor(s) and students.
All classes are mandatory to achieve certification as a Medical Aesthetician. The program is comprehensive to ensure students receive comprehensive training on the latest techniques.
The Aesthetic Institute is always happy to help our graduating students in any way we can. All graduates will have access to pre-recorded lesson plans and can call to schedule a time to sit in on a class if desired.
We incorporate both practical as well as theory/lecture from the very first day of class. We believe that it’s essential to be actively involved in your education for better retention of information (engaging of both left and right brain centers), improved attention, teamwork development, and critical thinking skills. The Aesthetic Institute will provide students with real-life experiences and live scenarios designed for active and engaging education. Depending on the program there may be larger portions dedicated to practical/clinical near the end of the program.
You will be provided with a complete syllabus and timeline of the course including holidays when classes will not be in session. We strongly encourage you to maintain good attendance and really devote yourself to school for the period of time that you are scheduled to be in school, so you get the most out of every day!
Unsatisfactory attendance and academic rates will lead to failing grades and possible expulsion of the course without refund if unsatisfactory attendance problems are in excess. We understand that emergencies and life events do happen and are happy to work with all students to find a solution. We encourage all students to speak with our Clinical and Training Director of Education if you have to miss more than 7 days.
If you haven’t completed your application yet, start there. After your application is complete we will review the information and our Clinical and Training Director of Education (Debi Williams) will reach out to you with the next steps. In order to ensure that the enrollment process is smooth please be sure to provide all information and documents in a timely manner. We are excited to be working with you!
