Salon and spa service providers across the globe are looking for qualified Estheticians to work with their clients. Our graduates set themselves apart from the competition by training in one of the largest training labs in Canada, with state-of-the-art facilities that prepares them for this growing profession.

The Esthetician program is an Ontario College Diploma offered over three consecutive terms. A graduate from this program will have completed an official two-year Ontario College Diploma in only 12 months.

Students learn a full range of spa services including semi-permanent hair removal, body treatments, makeup applications, manicures and pedicures. Curriculum emphasizes general business, sales, professionalism, and health and safety.

Students graduate with a recognized Ontario College Diploma and over 600 hours of practical hands-on experience while training at The Spa at Lambton, as well as comprehensive in-class education from qualified and experienced instructors. The Spa at Lambton is a live practical lab where students provide esthetic services and practice business skills in preparation for spa management or ownership. Clients from the community eagerly await the opening of The Spa every semester.

Students have the opportunity to take a field placement course that exposes them to many different esthetic locations including retail based operations, day spas and more. This experience allows them to familiarize themselves with a variety of potential work environments. It is also a great way for students to make valuable connections with potential future employers.
