Course Objective

This course is designed as an 8-hour Online (Internet-based) course for Cosmetologists, Estheticians, and Teachers (CT, ET).  This comprehensive course addresses the many aspects of skin including: (1) the skin as the body’s largest organ and its system functions, as well as other organs of the body and their functions; (2) the composition of the skin – (a) skin anatomy and (b) physiology; (3) the facts about “problem skin” and various elements that affect the skin such as: (a) skin disorders, (b) diseases, (c) contraindications, allergies, and the like; (4) the identification of skin types; (5) the sun, various rays from sun, and how to protect the skin from the sun; and (6) current trends in skincare, and services offered; as well as (7) sanitation standards for skincare. Various objectives of how to care for and treat different skin types are included as well. Because cosmetologists in North Carolina are able to work with esthetics-related services, this course will serve as a comprehensive guide that strives to provide advanced education regarding the skin and esthetics. There will also be an assessment of learning exercise at the end of the course – (with true/false answer options). There is no required passing grade for the end-of-course exam; however, course participants are asked to answer each of the questions to the best of their ability.
