Master Esthetics/Specific Licence Approved Professional Developement Classes.


clientsafety2

A Cosmetologist (Esthetics) must have three (3) years' consecutive working experience in a registered cosmetology establishment plus three (3) approved upgrading credits in order to be eligible for a licence upgrade to Master Licensure. 

A Master Cosmetologist (Esthetics) must successfully complete one (1) accredited professional developement class every second calendar year in order to be eligible for a Master licence status.

IMPORTANT: any individual that obtained Master Licence designation after January 1, 2019, must maintain that designation by providing the Cosmetology Association with confirmation of one approved upgrading credit every two years in order to qualify for Master designation.

NOTE - If you would like to take a specific program that is not approved for upgrading and you feel it should be an approved course for upgrading, please, have the instructor or company contact the Association to have the program approved or visit https://nscosmetology.ca/professional-development/submitting-courses-for-approval 

If you are unsure whether or not a course you have completed is recognized as an approved course, please contact the Association or review the list of courses currently approved by the Cosmetology Association of Nova Scotia (listed below):
