The Esthetician program is designed to provide entry level skills to students interested in a career in the Esthetics industry. California State law requires that persons enrolling in the Esthetician courses must be at least sixteen years of age. 

We provide you with every opportunity to succeed in the training program at San Diego City College and to increase your opportunity for successfully passing the California's State Board licensing exam.

The Esthetician program consists of two sessions, requires 600 clocked hours and 18 units to complete. Full-time students complete the program in 16 weeks.  Part-time students complete the program in 28 weeks.
