National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors & Association
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.
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.
Your NCEA Certified credential and NCEA Individual Membership need to be maintained in order for you to call yourself “NCEA Certified.” Every three years, you will need to re-certify to maintain your National Esthetician Certification.
