Bringing Together a Multidisciplinary Education

Getting a full specialist license in Florida can be one of the best ways to stand out as a beauty professional. The beauty and wellness industry is a field of interconnected disciplines, and a full specialist is a great combination!

To qualify for a full specialist license, you can expect to complete a total of 600 clock hours. These hours are broken down further with 330 hours for facial and skincare education and 270 hours in nail tech training.

You can expect to learn both skin care and manicuring in our practical space. Hone your facial skin care skills in our serene appointed table clinic, practice hydrotherapy in our state-of-the-art wet room, and refine your knowledge utilizing mag lights alongside four galvanic current and vacuum machines. And that’s not all!

You can have the opportunity to train with industry experts on skin care, nails, beauty, and wellness. Through a combination of mentorship, practical skills, and assignments, your full specialty education can equip you with the skills you need.

Transitioning between both work environments will give you a sense of what it’s like to work for a full-service spa. You’ll step into the shoes of a full specialist and feel confident in your abilities.
