Getting the National Esthetician Certification is the highest voluntary credential in the United States–raising the standards of our profession beyond entry-level licensure. The NCEA Certified credentialing exam provides a standardized, valid, legally defensible exam using psychometric principles.
The NCEA Certified credential’s competency-based exam evaluates the Esthetician’s skills and knowledge at a 1200-hour level. NCEA created this affordable pathway for endorsement and/or reciprocity, (exchanging your license) so you can move to another state with higher hours and get a license and/or Advanced or Master Esthetician License.
The majority of states still only require about 600-hours (or less)of schooling in order to get a license. We now have over a dozen states that require more hours. (a good thing!) An Esthetician moving from a 600-hour license may be required to go back to school, even with years of work experience. (a bad thing!) We are losing Estheticians from this profession due to these roadblocks!
Many states are now recognizing in rule or law that the NCEA Certified credential can be used for equivalency, thereby allowing the Esthetician to exchange their license in that state. (and saving the Estheticians $$ from going back to school.) By ensuring the Esthetician’s competency through the NCEA Certified credential, a state regulatory board can meet their mission of protecting the consumer and keep Estheticians working in the profession they love.
The best reasons to become a NCEA Certified Professional include showing dedication to being the best you can be, identifying and controlling risks to consumers, demonstrating knowledge and comprehension, being better equipped to respond to changing industry demands and greater employment opportunities.
The NCEA Certified credential signifies the value and credibility for consumers in determining the expertise and training of an Esthetician.
