For anyone interested, a new electrology school is opening in Columbus. Classes are scheduled to begin March 4, 2011. The Cosmetic Therapy Training Program will offer a 765 hour program, with 50 hours of the required laser hair removal program, also being offered. The State Medical Board of Ohio and the State Board of Career Colleges and Schools have both approved the program.
Instructors will be physicians and others who have a degree within the science they teach. Currently licensed CT's/electrologists may attend regularly scheduled classes, for a fee, to obtain continuing education required for license renewal every two years. Classes will be offered on Friday's and Saturday's from 8am to 6:30 pm. Don't know the fee schedule, but anyone interested in attending this new program can call Vickie Mickey's office at 614-457-0448.
I personally am very pleased that this program recognizes the need to train students in both modalities for professional hair removal/reduction - electrolysis and laser. I have been to Vickie's facility and it is very nice, not to mention, very accessible from the interstate.
