NCEA Certified is the professional status awarded to a skin care professional that has met the competency standards as set-forth by NCEA's 1200 Hour Esthetician Job Task Analysis. It represents the highest skin care credential available in the United States and adherence to the code of ethics of the profession.

Those who choose to become NCEA Certified do so for a variety of reasons, including:
  • Commitment to career and the industry.
  • Desire to challenge skill level and knowledge base.
  • Commitment to personal growth and continuous learning.
  • A move to another state where the hours of training are higher than what they received in school.
  • State endorsement/reciprocity requirement to attain advanced licensure.

  • The reasons also vary with a person's age, longevity in the field and future plans. An added benefit is that NCEA Certified estheticians on average, earn more than their noncertified counterparts. Those who are committed to personal growth are more likely to have the self-confidence to seek increasing levels of responsibility and, therefore, higher incomes. Regardless of the reason — it's a good investment in yourself. The NCEA Certified designation could mean the difference between getting or missing out on your next promotion or position. Certification better prepares the skin care professional for today's job market and helps you be better equipped to respond to the constantly changing demands and advances within our profession.
