Make A Difference With Your Aesthetics Diploma

Imagine yourself in a career where you can do and be whatever you want to be as an Esthetician. Expressing yourself artistically in your career is what you’ve always wanted to have the ability to do. Helping others feel confident is what you do best, and you know you have the confidence and expertise to do it. And, having the flexibility to work your own hours, start your own business, and learn the latest techniques in the ever-changing field of aesthetics excites you!

With the CBBC Career College Aesthetics program, we will prepare you to be career-ready and meet the requirements to earn your license through the Cosmetology Association of Nova Scotia. Throughout the Aesthetics program, Industry Experts will come and do theory and hands-on workshops to help you learn the latest in the beauty industry. You will get hands-on practice throughout your entire program through labs and clinic experience in our CBBC Training Salon & Spa in Sydney, Nova Scotia and Regency Training Salon & Spa in Halifax, Nova Scotia. You will have the opportunity to work with products like Quannessence and CND Nail Polish.
