CERTIFICATE PROGRAM FOR BEGINNERS
600 Clock Hours
The curriculum for students enrolled in an Electrology course shall consist of 600 hours of technical (theoretical) and practical (hands-on) instructions covering all practices constituting the art of Electrology. Technical (theoretical) instruction refers to instruction by demonstration, lecture, classroom participation or examination whereas practical training (hands-on) is the time to perform a practical operation. Students can take the online portion at their own pace but we do recommend that you finish the online and textbook study before beginning the hands-on portion of your training. This program leads to licensure in the State of California.
Online Theoretical Portion and Textbook Home-Study
Theoretical portion for the Electrology course is taught using the world renowned Academie Dectro Electroepilation Online Course and the State of California recommended textbook Milady's Hair Removal Techniques: A Comprehensive Manual. The Milady textbook is available for purchase at the school. Once the student has paid the $1,500.00 deposit, a username and password will be generated for you to access the online academy. Once logged in students can begin the theory right away. Students will receive their scores immediately after the completion of an online quiz and may progress through the online theory at their own pace.
Students must pass all the online quizzes with a score of 75% or more in order to receive credit for that module. Any quizzes that are not passed online will have to be retaken in-person at the school. To facilitate the assimilation of the online theory, the student will receive a workbook to complete for the purpose of reviewing materials in order to better prepare them for the Final Exam which will be administered as the student nears completion of their program. This workbook will be passed out as part of the student kit on Orientation day.
Practical Hands-on portion onsite
The practical portion of the Electrology course is taught on site at the California Electrology Academy in Corona, California (1159 Pomona Rd., Suite D2, Corona, CA 92882). Once the theoretical portion is completed, students are to report to the school facility for the remainder of their program.
On the first day of attendance at California Electrology Academy, the student will need to attend an orientation. During the orientation, CEA will go over school Rules and Regulations, hand out student kits, explains time cards, and other key aspects of your hands-on training. Orientations are offered two (2) times per month; on the first (1st) Tuesday of the month and the third (3rd) Saturday of the month. Contact CEA for exact dates.
During the practical portion or your training, students should aim to work on themselves, other students or models who come into the school as much as possible. Practical hours are described as the number of hours the student does an insertion. CEA requires a minimum of 200 practical hours to be eligible for graduation. Student performance on various practical skills will be tested during the time they are they are completing the hands-on portion of the program including ethics, the consultation and the execution of a treatment on various body parts.
Students with under 60 practical hours will only work on the arms and legs of various models, at 60 practical hours, the student can sit for part one of the practical exam. This will test the student on their practical skills to determine if they are ready to progress to other areas such as bikini and underarms. Once the student reaches 100 practical hours, they will be tested again for part two of the practical exam to see if they are ready for face work. Students who pass part two can work on all body areas for the remainder of their training.
When students are nearing the end of their training (200 practical hours) they will be tested for part three of the Practical exam which will encompass face work. Part three is considered the Practical Final Exam. It is at this point that students who are sitting for the California State Board Examination will need to complete three (3) “mock” state board exams and pass them successfully. These mock exams will be taken under as close to real test conditions as the school can offer in order to best prepare the student for the real thing.
