In Arizona there is a high demand for estheticians in the cities like Phoenix and Tempe; that is where there are a number of schools that will teach you how to become a skin care professional.
How Long Does It Take?
To become a licensed aesthetician in Arizona there are some requirements you must meet. You need to complete a training program of at least 600 hours at a licensed school of aesthetics or cosmetology. More hours will be required to become a medical skin care specialist. You also need to have at least two years of a high school education or be 23 years of age or older. You will learn about skin physiology, sanitation and disinfections, makeup and design, treatments, and body wraps, and more. First things first: find your school by using your ZIP to locate one nearby:
After completing the training (and BTW you might be able to do some training online) you need to submit an Application for Examination along with a licensing fee to the state board. The Board will review your application and then you need to take a written and a practical test. They will email you instructions on how to schedule these exams.
When you go to take the test you need to have a current passport-sized picture and two forms of ID. This way the examiners know that you are taking the test and not sending someone in your place.
You need to pass both exams with a score of at least 75 percent. Once you have done so you will get a “Notice of Completion”. Once you have this official notice you will get your license for the state of Arizona and you will be ready to work in the field of skin care.
At this time you can begin your job search. To get a position with a good salary it is best to search far and wide and via as many means as you can. An online job search can begin via the state’s website.
