National Coalition of Estheticians Association - (201) 670-4100 -

Join Our Association

Membership in the NCEA Association has many benefits, but our primary mission is to help you PROTECT YOUR CAREER and EARNINGS POTENTIAL. Once a member, you can work towards getting your National Esthetician Certification so you know you have met the equivalent standards of a Master Esthetician. Although the Master Esthetician license is currently only available in 4 states (UT, VA, DC, WA), getting the NCEA Certified credential is showing that you voluntarily have raised your competency to the same level. We need to show legislators that this is the licensing level we want to be in order to change our future!

Membership is also available to businesses and other organizations in the industry.

Joining the NCEA and becoming a Member made perfect sense after the hard work and hundreds of hours I’ve put into my career. Then getting my National Esthetician Certification separates me from other licensed professionals. It has taken my career to a new level and increased my earnings potential dramatically. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to join the association and also get NCEA Certified.
