School Accreditation

You must attend a school that is approved by your state to provide training in the discipline you want to practice. Check with the school and the state board to be sure that your program of study will prepare you for any applicable state licensure.

Students learn state laws and regulations governing the practice of esthetics in Colorado, along with safety requirements and sanitation techniques for equipment. Esthetics is a growing industry nationwide, and licensed estheticians may be able to obtain a dream job in one of Colorado’s beautiful mountain resorts or other posh locations.

Earn Your Colorado Esthetician License

Regulated by the Colorado Division of Professions and Occupations, esthetics students must complete 600 clock hours or 20 credit hours of specialized training. Esthetics training includes sanitation and safety procedures, skin care, makeup, skin therapies, state laws, ethics, business skills, hair removal, and safe work practices.

Once the education component is completed, esthetician license candidates must pass both a written and a practical examination. The practical exam tests candidates over basic techniques, safety, sanitation, and professional esthetician skills. Often candidates must provide a manikin head for use during the practical test.
