Ontario College Diploma - Esthetician
Salon and spa service providers across the globe are looking for qualified Estheticians to work with their clients. Our graduates set themselves apart from the competition by training in one of the largest training labs in Canada, with state-of-the-art facilities that prepare them for this growing profession.
The Esthetician program is an Ontario College Diploma offered over three consecutive terms. A graduate from this program will have completed an official two-year Ontario College Diploma in only 12 months.
Students learn a full range of spa services including skincare, semi-permanent hair removal, body treatments, makeup applications, manicures, and pedicures. The curriculum emphasizes general business, sales, professionalism, and health and safety.
Upon graduation, students will obtain over 600 hours of practical hands-on experience while training at Salon & Spa at Lambton, as well as comprehensive in-class education from qualified and experienced instructors. The Salon & Spa at Lambton is a live practical lab where students provide esthetic services and practice business skills in preparation for spa management or ownership. Clients from the community eagerly await the opening of the Salon & Spa every term.
Students have the opportunity to take a field placement course that exposes them to many different esthetic locations including retail-based operations, day spas, and more. This experience allows them to familiarize themselves with a variety of potential work environments. It is also a great way for students to make valuable connections with potential future employers.
Lambton College’s Main Campus is located in Sarnia, Ontario and the main building on-site is the South Building where the majority of the classrooms and staff and faculty offices are located. In addition to the South Building, the main campus is also home to the Suncor Sustainability Centre, the Lambton College Residence and Event Centre, the Sustainable Smart Home, the Skilled Trades Training Centre and the North Building.
