TPCA strives to promote a healthy balance between school and your personal life; this is why our academy runs on a 4-day workweek.

Full-time: 9:15 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Part-time: 9:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Training Breakdown:

 

As a future skincare professional, dedicated instructors will guide you through three (3) phases, with each phase taking on more advanced techniques, building real-world skills, and confidence as you progress through the course.

Phase I:

 

This pre-clinical classroom training allows you to learn the fundamentals in a classroom setting, practicing techniques on mannequin heads and fellow classmates while a dedicated instructor guides you every step of the way. 

 

Phase II:

This phase is when most students find what services they are most passionate about. 

  • Practice on paying clients in a real, assimilated salon/spa environment

  • Improve your skills with the help of a dedicated instructor to eventually develop speed and work independently (under the supervision of your instructor) to start your career. 

  • Learn advanced techniques

 

Phase III:

 

  • Continue rendering services independently under the supervision of your instructor

  • Prepare a career portfolio

  • Prepare for the State Board Exam
