Having just completed my Medical Aesthetician Diploma I would like to send a huge “Thank You” to all the staff and my fellow students. My experience was an extremely positive one. Eve, Vana, Aliki, Jessica, Kristen (and more) are a wonderful dedicated education team who take the time to answer questions, help one on one, and certainly “raise the bar” on professionalism and skill. The spirit of mutual support, kindness, and encouragement I received from my fellow students kept the challenge of study and learning new skills fun, enjoyable, and achievable. The high standard of education at this College has prepared me well for my career in the Medical Spa industry. The small class size allowed for plenty of hands on learning and opportunity to have questions answered. The dedicated staff ensure that students are aware of what is expected on them and they provide students everything necessary to succeed.

Thank you to you all! I will return for services and future workshops!!

When I enrolled at this college, I had expectations of working hard to graduate with a Medical Aesthetics Diploma. I did not expect to have the wonderful experience that I’ve had because of the amazing Instructors and Staff here. The Instructors and Staff have each helped me in many ways through their wisdom, guidance, knowledge, encouragement, support, patience and understanding. They have helped me to become better prepared for the industry in knowledge, skill and professionalism.

The professional attitude that is exuded by the Staff helps set a standard for the students that will raise the bar throughout the industry.

Thank you for taking the time to help me become a successful Graduate.
