Frequently Asked Questions About Careers in Esthetics
How do I become a licensed esthetician in Ohio and how long does it take?
Becoming a licensed esthetician in Ohio requires you to complete a 600-hour training program at an accredited school like PLCC. You can complete our course in just seven months. Once your training is complete, you must take and pass the Ohio State Cosmetology and Barber Board exam for estheticians.
What can you do with an esthetician license?
Estheticians specialize in helping people get healthier, more beautiful skin. Licensed estheticians provide cosmetic skin treatments, such as facials, superficial chemical peels, body treatments, and waxing.
Many estheticians work at salons, spas, and in the travel industry. You can also be your own boss as an independent esthetician. In addition, although they are not health care providers and cannot diagnose or treat skin conditions, estheticians often work closely with dermatologists, sometimes as staff members.
What’s the difference between an esthetics license and a cosmetology license?
A license to practice esthetics covers only skincare practices, makeup application, and hair removal. A cosmetology license includes the ability to practice esthetics, as well as cut, style, and chemically treat hair and provide manicures / pedicures.
Test-optional Admissions Policy Statement
Effective May 8, 2020, Portage Lakes Career Center will be operating under a test-optional admissions policy* for the following programs: Cosmetology, Dual Esthetician & Nail Tech, Esthetician, Nail Technician, EKG and Phlebotomy Technician, Automotive Technician, HVAC-R Technician, Welding Technology, Manufacturing Technologies and Plumbing Technologies.
With the ACT WorkKeys Assessment currently unavailable, PLCC feels that students should still be given the opportunity to secure enrollment for the upcoming school year and has, therefore, modified its admissions requirements to a test-optional policy.
Students looking to enroll in the above-listed programs can now opt to submit an official high school or GED transcript to be reviewed. Team members will grant student placement only after evaluating the transcript and determining that it meets all criteria for admission. Students who still wish to test in order to be considered for program enrollment may do so once testing and normal operations resume.
*PLEASE NOTE: This test-optional policy DOES NOT APPLY to the Practical Nursing program. Students hoping to enroll in that program MUST test.
