The Personalized Advanced Training class is adapted to the Electrologists’ specific needs. We also offer group rates for a class of six or more at your location.

These courses will provide the Electrologist enough instruction to attain the highest standards of quality, appropriate psychological attitude and channels of communication, professionalism, and a strong foundation in the practice of the Professional Code of Ethics.

In Consultation, we teach the electrologist to understand the importance of and how to conduct an excellent consultation at the start of the first visit with a client. Strong consultation skills provide both the Electrologist and the Client with a clear set of expectations and goals for the treatment. In this course we also point out the importance of and how to capture the patient’s clinical history, both formally at the first visit and then informally on an ongoing basis at each visit to ensure that the Electrologist is informed of any changes (as in medications or health status).

In The Workstation, we learn how to organize the workstation so that it is functional, professional, appropriate and has all the elements and instruments needed. We also learn the norms of hygiene and safety that our profession demands before, during and after the treatment.

In Skin and Pilo Sebaceous Unit we study the hair, the pilo-sebaceous unit, the sebaceous and sudoriparous glands, and some cutaneous abnormalities for the detection of some illnesses.
