Labs and Job Shadowing
Graduates of the NACC Esthetics program have had a minimum of 500 hours in a lab practicing, refining and being assessed on skills needed to perform esthetics services. Graduates have also been placed in a job shadowing role in a spa or salon to gain an understanding of the role and responsibilities of an esthetician in a work environment.
NACC Esthetics Standard
NACC colleges are provincially registered and regulated. Our students’ success in the work force is a direct reflection of our success as educators. Each NACC college is dedicated to skills development at the forefront of today’s training. The program is designed and modified to meet specific job requirements. This means that our graduates have acquired the skills that they need to effectively work in a spa or salon environment.
Final Esthetics Examination
The NACC final examination evaluates the theory component of the training and determines whether the candidate has met the required level of knowledge. The external setting and marking provide unbiased and consistent evaluation, adhering to industry standards.
The Exam Services Committee of NACC monitors and reviews the Esthetics program content and examination system. The Exam Services Committee also serves as a resource for member colleges offering support and advice as well as conducting visits to confirm compliance with NACC standards for delivery of the program.
Examinations are developed by the committee with input from the childcare sector and Common Standards Group Colleges, and examinations are offered on a monthly basis.
The standardized curricula and third party examinations not only demonstrate NACC’s commitment to promote national standards, but also facilitate credit transfer and mobility for students seeking further qualifications.
NACC Certificate and Pin
Successful students are awarded a numbered certificate and correspondingly numbered pin identifying the graduate as having successfully passed the theory portion of the Esthetics program.
