HOW LONG IS THE PROGRAM? 

We offer three separate programs in the Esthetics field.

We offer a 600 hour Basic Esthetics course for Virginia, and we offer a 750 hour Esthetics course tailored for Tennessee licensure. However, if you obtain the Tennessee hour requirement of 750 hours, you may choose to take your state board exam in either Virginia or Tennessee and obtain a license in either state. We also offer a Master Esthetics course of 600 hours for Virginia licensure. The Master Esthetics course is only available in Virginia and requires a Virginia Basic Esthetics license for enrollment.

The Basic Esthetics Program for Virginia is 600 hours. If attending the day class schedule, the program takes just over 10 1/2 months to complete. If attending the evening class schedule, the program takes just under 10 months to complete.

The Esthetics Program, which is tailored for licensure in states such as Tennessee, is 750 hours. If attending full-time, the program takes just over 7 months to complete. If attending part-time, the program takes just over 12 months to complete.
