The Inaugural Meeting of the NCEA was held in New York city on June 25, 2000. As of our 20th birthday, the association shortened its name officially to the National Coalition of Estheticians Association.
Congratulations to past, present and future Estheticians working towards raising standards with national credentialing and continuing education accreditation.–Susanne S. Warfield, Founder & Executive Director
The NCEA Certified credential is awarded to those who have met the advanced training standards equivalent to a Master Esthetician license. Attaining 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 credential signifies the value and credibility for consumers in determining the expertise and training of an Esthetician.
NATIONAL ESTHETICIAN CERTIFICATION OVERVIEW
The path to get your National Esthetician Certification begins with purchasing the TRAINING MANUAL. Start the CANDIDATE APPLICATION requirements while working on the manual. In about 4-6 weeks, your Candidate Application should be ready to send in. After receiving your AUTHORIZATION-TO-TEST (ATT) take your exam within 60 days in the comfort of your own home or office.
MAINTAINING YOUR NCEA CERTIFIED CREDENTIAL
