Hi guys,
So I'm back again with more determination to become an electrologist!
Now I have two schools in mind that offer the theory portion online while practical is onsite the first school is Electrology Insstitute of New Englad- Massachusetts, and then River Rock Electrology Institute- Wisconsin!
What do you think guys

EINE is supposedly the best option in the North East but they're expensive for what you will come out knowing in the end. Find a cheap program. And then invest your money into traveling to Quebec to get trained by the Dectro instructors if you can where you will pick the solid hands on skills. None Dectro schools like to push Dectro machines on students but the instructors themselves are not always trained properly to understand the machines they teach.

Thank you for this valuable advice!
I will start saving money to go to Canda and get trained there, I agree on the same thing, Dectro is a very reputable company in this field...

Where will you be practicing? More states in the U.S. don't regulate electrology at all than those that do. You can setup shop today and call yourself an electrologist in many states and no government authority can stop you even if you end up just plucking hair at $100 an hour rate.

But if you will take a basic course from accredited school and then supplement your knowledge at Dectro school, passing the CPE exam will be a none issue.

I live in Michigan!
I would like to know if I choose this path what steps I should be following?
I always prefer online studying for the theory part, as I still take classes in college!

In MA, EINE is an excellent school and Mary Evangelista is a great teacher. If you choose to use Dectro equipment, this is the place to go. I am not familiar with the school in Wisconsin.

Hi Dona,

If you are interested in working as an electrologist in the state of Michigan, you will need to contact the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulating Affairs, Board of Cosmetology, PO Box 30244, Lansing, MI 48909, 517-241-8720, www.michigan.gov/cosmetology.
They require the 400 hr course / 6 month apprenticeship

EINE is a satellite of Dectro Canada. The teachers are all trained in Apilus.

For others reading about licensing: keep in mind that if you administer electrolysis in an unlicensed state with no training certification, you will not be able to get liability and malpractice insurance.

Thank you so much for the professional advices.
I have also read about Apilus Center in California and the possibility of having the online course done and then do the practice in one of Apilus schools.
And I wonder if Acadmie Dectro Quebec is possible in my case. I'm very motivated because I have friends who offered me free housing there in Quebec City!

An Apilus Center would be great. Many electrolysis students travel to obtain their training. There aren't that many schools, so if you have the ability to travel and stay with friends or family, that makes it a little easier. Quebec City is awesome and so beautiful. I think you may have a solution.

Do they teach the Apilus machines in full depth there or is it like winning a lottery on who the instructor is for that day? An electrologist who charges $150 an hour and was trained by EINE on Apilus Platinum but sounded lost that this machine offers other treatment patterns for coarse hair when a suggestion was made to try Synchro over Pico Flash when regrowth was on 2nd week after clearances. Her response was "I never heard of that." sleep For $150 an hour you'd expect them to be electrology Gods in equipment they use.

This is absolutely false. I teach in an unlicensed state and am on various boards for Electrology.
