Prepare to Become a Licensed Esthetician

As you pursue your training, you will want to select a program that is designed to prepare you to become a Licensed Esthetician.  That’s the goal of our Esthetician training here at Dorsey School of Beauty.

It’s important to keep in mind that states require an esthetician to become licensed in order to pursue gainful employment in this field.  That means you will want to select an approved training program and ensure you meet all of the other requirements set forth by your state.

Dorsey School of Beauty has determined that its Esthetician program curriculum is sufficient to fulfill educational requirements for licensure in the State of Michigan only. No educational determinations have been made for any other state, district or US territory in regards to licensure requirements.

As licensure is required for employment by the State of Michigan, Dorsey School of Beauty will pay the cost one time for graduates of this program to challenge the state licensure exam, contingent upon the graduate meeting Dorsey School of Beauty’s exam preparation requirements.

A Career as an Esthetician
