The Electrolysis program at Bright Education Institute provides comprehensive training in permanent hair removal. It is 320 clock hours and is teaching in a format that includes both PowerPoint presentation and hands-on training. Students will learn the modern short-wave, blend and multiple galvanic methods of electrolysis, making it easier for students to deepen their knowledge of current practices within a modern beauty upon successful completion of the program, a diploma will be granted and graduates may apply for the state licensing exam and the national certification testing.

Some topics are: Introduction to Electrolysis, Principle of Electricity, Integumentary System, Circulatory System, Nervous System, Endocrine System and Diseases of the Glands, Biology of Hair Growth and Disorders. In addition to learning how to remove unwanted hair students also learn which are the most effective methods to be used in each person and the purpose.

OBJECTIVE

This program is designed to train students in permanent hair removal by electrology.

The courses are designed to give the students a thorough entry-level preparation
to work in the field of electrology.

The modern short wave, blend, and galvanic methods are taught in small classes and students gain hands-on experience through clinical applications.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates may apply for the state licensing exam and the national certification testing.

A diploma will be awarded upon graduation from the program.

DESCRIPTION

This is a resident training program consisting of 120 hours of theory and 200 hours of applied practical training.

A diploma will be awarded upon graduation from the program.
