Ontario has many good esthetics schools. There is no set number of hours that are required of those wishing to become an aesthetician in Ont. Neither are there practical or written exams required, as there is no licensing for skin care specialists in Ontario.
That’s not to say that Ontario doesn’t have educational standards in place, but those standards aren’t enforced in the realm of licensing actual practicing aestheticians.
For instance, the document linked above describes a series of procedures and demonstrations of knowledge that a graduate of an esthetician program should show competence in:
- Do a variety of skin and body care treatments by using the correct methods and safety precautions. These can include manicures, pedicures, facials, waxing, threading, makeup, and more.
- Demonstrate the use of aesthetic products and equipment by following established policies.
- Use knowledge of human anatomy and biology in the performance of specialized treatments and client services.
- Complying with various safety and health guidelines in accordance with industry practices and government legislation…
- …and so on, including showing aesthetics business acumen, appropriate client product recommendations, professional conduct to clients and colleagues, etc.
