The Esthetician program prepares students to enter the world of skin care and natural nail care by teaching the required skills for success in a competitive industry. Students will develop communication skills, professional behavior, and the core skills of working in or building a spa business. Students will work with spa guests in a modern, well-equipped spa and will perform these skills with the newest techniques, products and equipment in the industry. At the end of the program, students will be qualified to take the Utah State Esthetician Licensing Exam (a valid US Social Security Number and Government issued ID is necessary for licensure)
