Teaching Esthetics in Alberta

teaching esthetics in Alberta

Are there teaching requirements?

Esthetics is not a regulated industry in Alberta, Canada. However, industry guidelines exist to help estheticians reach their goal of becoming effective industry educators. We recommend that estheticians have at minimum 2-3 years of experience in their field before taking the next step into education.

Different roads to teaching esthetics.

Depending on your final goal, there are different ways to become an esthetics instructor in Alberta. Ask yourself a few questions to help you clarify your goal. For example, do you visualize one-on-one training or large classes? Do you want to be self-employed? Or would you prefer to work for a school?

student recruitment

Working at an existing school is a good path for those that want to mentor future service providers without worrying too much about administrative details . This pathway follows a student-centered approach where the focus is the development of your students.

Schools have their own criteria when hiring these positions. Leadership and organizational skills are important qualifications for instructors.

training provider

Smaller classes or one-on-one training, also known as private trainers or private vocational training, is the path for entrepreneurs.

Private trainers develop their own curriculum. In addition, they are often responsible for student recruitment and procurement of goods. One-on-one training is a good way to start as it allows for low delivery costs with little financial risk.

Certainly regulations exist at most levels of government to ensure private trainers meet minimum licensing requirements in their fields. Consequently, there are many requirements to meet to achieve a training license. For instance, private trainers must show that they have consulted industry leaders in approving their curriculum.

Will I need a teaching license?

If you are visualizing larger classes or courses that will cost students over $1,000 in tuition fees, you will need a teaching license. This license is different than a business license issued by your municipality.

Not all private educators have curriculums that require a teaching license. There a few exemptions to licensing revolving around the price and purpose of your course amongst other factors.

What is the difference between licensing and accreditation?

Licensing refers to the provincial government’s approval of a private trainer. Accreditation refers to the ability to offer students federal and provincial student loan options to pay for their tuition.

Blushing Towel Buff

Image courstesy of Rodolpho Zanardo

Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!

My client’s wife had treated him to a relaxing day of spa & barbering services for their anniversary. 

My job was to deliver a body polish service. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this service, it’s basically a full body scrub that leaves your skin feeling like silk. 😊

The service requires the client to be fully undressed. They lie on the massage table covered by a small towel over the groin area and another over the bust for women. 

Drifting away…

Now, during quiet services I tend to drift away in my thoughts and answer pressing questions. Questions like “what should I wear tomorrow?” or “I wonder what my dog is thinking right now?” or “why does the sun lighten our hair but darken our skin?”

It makes the time pass and before you know it you’ve exfoliated 90% of your 6-foot-tall client who happens to be blessed with 2-inch strands of body hair over everything but his palms and soles.  

Zoned OUT.

After scrubbing away at his limbs and torso, I followed up with a swift towel buff. I like using a rolled-up towel to wipe away the granules. To prevent the granules from getting into his eyes I covered them with a small towel, much like a blindfold. I then recite the usual – “for this next step, I will need you to close your eyes”. 

I was so zoned out in my thoughts as I whipped the towel into my hands and began to wind it like a jockey in the locker room. When I turned back to the bed, I realized that I had whipped his groin towel off and left him laying blindfolded, motionless, and butt naked on the table!  

I quickly threw the towel on him and apologized through my uncontrollable laughter, his response “It’s ok, I just wasn’t sure what was gonna to happen next!”.
