"I graduated from the Alberta Academy of Aesthetics in 2000.  They provide extensive training with theory and hands on work shops.  This allows each student to understand the broad range of aesthetic services and the fundamental workings of treatments and how they can benefit the client.
Since I graduated, I have worked for Medical Spas and then opened my own spa.  Finding work was extremely easy as The Alberta Academy of Aesthetics has a reputation for high standards and exceptional quality students that graduate from their institute.  As a spa owner we look specifically for graduates that come from the Alberta Academy of Aesthetics.  I absolutely recommend this school and their programs for anyone who is passionate about being the best aesthetician and service provider in the cosmetic and beauty industry."
