Basic Esthetician License
In Utah, you must complete 600 hours of instruction at an accredited institution to become an esthetician. This includes hands-on learning and coursework such as skin care, nail care and eyelash extension classes. You’ll learn all the skills you need to work in a medical setting or at a top area spa. Good estheticians are always in demand.
Once you complete the course, you must pass a state exam to get your esthetician license. Then you can work anywhere in the state of Utah as an esthetician.
Master Esthetician Program
After working as an esthetician for a period of time, you may decide you want to move up and become a master esthetician. To become a master esthetician, you must take an additional 600 hours of classes and pass a second state exam.
Once you do this, you get your master esthetician license and can perform more complex and demanding procedures, such as chemical peels, microneedling and laser skin resurfacing.
Those new to the field can take the basic esthetician program and the master esthetician program consecutively, for a total of 1,200 hours of instruction.
If you are a master esthetician interested in learning how to teach others to become estheticians, you can take our instructor internship course. This course is 300 hours and prepares you to take the state licensing exam for instructors. Once you pass this exam, you will be able to work in the rewarding and important field of teaching new estheticians.
