780 Hours | 31 Credits | 35 Weeks Full-Time (Day) | 55 Weeks Full-Time (Evening)
Our 780-hour program is ideal for students who want to become licensed aestheticians while earning a dual certification as a cosmetic laser technician, as well. It combines the curriculum of our 600-hour Natural Aesthetics Practitioner program with the additional coursework and hands-on training of our 180-hour Cosmetic Laser Technician program. These two certifications from Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics is a winning combination for a fulfilling and profitable career.
Once students complete the aesthetics portion of the program, they begin 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.
SWINA prepares all of our students to pass both the written and practical “mock” AZ State Board exams. This preparation offers a real life experience in passing the actual licensing exam. All students are required to participate in both theory education and “hands-on” practical work on fellow students, models, and clientele.
Financial Aid is available to those who qualify. SWIHA is a nationally-accredited college approved by the United States Department of Education. Students enrolled in programs of 600 hours or more may qualify for Federal Student Aid in the form of Pell grants and student loans.
