Our 780 hour program is ideal for students who want to become a Licensed Aesthetician and earn a dual certification as a Cosmetic Laser Technician. The curriculum of our 600-hour Natural Aesthetics Practitioner program is combined with the coursework and hands-on training of our 180-hour Cosmetic Laser Technician program. This dual certification from Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics is a winning combination for a fulfilling and profitable career. We offer convenient day or evening programs to suit the busy schedules of our students.
Once students complete the aesthetics portion of the program, they are ready to begin the laser training. Our state-of-the-art program exceeds the stringent requirements of the Arizona Radiation Regulatory Agency (ARRA) by offering the required 40 hours of Laser and Intense Pulse Light training plus many hours of clinical observations and hands-on treatments.
The Cosmetic Laser Technician certification program is a combination of lecture, observed procedures, and hands-on training during an internship that offers the student the unique opportunity of training in a real world setting, providing services to the public at SWINA’s beautiful Student Day Spa.
Tuesday through Friday, from 8:30-4:30pm for the first 8 weeks. Thereafter, students attend class 8:30-12:30pm, and are required to complete an additional 8 hours per week toward their clinic internship.
