Kansas sits right in the middle of the American heartland. Its official state nickname is “The Sunflower State”. The state is one of the best agricultural producers in the nation with important crops being wheat, corn and soy beans. However, there’s still plenty of demand for aestheticians and there are a number of good schools that will train you in basic esthetics or medical esthetics.
How To Get Licensed For Skin Care in Kansas
Getting your training in KS takes time. First is to go to a school that will educate you in the mysteries of skin care. 1,000 hours are required by law in order to get properly prepared for the profession. This is more hours than many states, so you’ll be sure to get a thorough knowledge and lots of hands-on practice.
What’s more having an above average education means that it will be easier to get licensed in other states if you decide to move.
There’s a lot to learn in esthetics so 1,000 may not be enough for some people. All aspects of skin care will be covered. You’ll learn makeup, skin anatomy, skin conditions and diseases, exfoliation, hair removal and so on. You’ll also learn customer service and business practices since making customers feel good about themselves and running an efficient salon are a large part of providing good service.
Once you have graduated from school you still need to apply to take exams and, naturally, pass those exams (both written and practical). Ergometrics in Kansas administers the exams and has provided an exam prep guide to make things easier for both students and examiners.
Once you receive your license you can begin working. To get an idea of what kind of jobs are available check out KansasWorks.com. Remember, though, to renew your license every two years. No credits are necessary for renewal, only a small fee. You will be notified before renewal date so keep your addresses up-to-date with the cosmetology board.
