IAAHS Continuing Education Program

IAAHS Distance Learning Advanced Studies CE Program

The continuing education program offered by the Institute of Advanced Aesthetics and Health Sciences is an exhaustive review of common practices and applications in managing skin conditions.  Our program is offered in two formats, online self study (distance learning), or self study books (correspondence learning) depending on the choice and needs of each professional.  Once completed, all CE courses come with a Certificate of Completion in medical aesthetics which is endorsed by the Institute of Advanced Aesthetics and Health Sciences.   

Along with the online learning material, IAAHS offers books that contain the CE course in book format.  Please check availability on our Book Page.  

Our program is accessible and affordable for as little as $12.50 per CEU!  Let us know if you are a college or business owner and would like to offer our courses to your students or members at a discounted rate.  Please email us at iaahs.edu@gmail.com.

"I have been in the field of esthetics for over fourteen years and in the field of skin care and cosmetics for over twenty-five years.  I am always looking for interesting and informative CE courses, and I have found that there are many courses out there that are just not very enlightening or interesting.  I found this online course to be very intriguing and I actually re-learned or learned things which will be very helpful in my career.  The material was easy to read and very thorough.  Thank you!"     Katy N. Raleigh, NC. 

"I must say that these are not the usual online cookie-cutter courses that I have seen.  I found the material to be very comprehensive and relevant, and I feel as a practitioner the courses definitely moved me up the knowledge spectrum.  I highly recommend this program to those serious estheticians seeking a deeper understanding of the important work that we do."     Marion E. Boone, NC.  

"I have my Associates degree but I will soon begin working on my BSN. This read was a great refresh on what I learned years ago in my Anatomy and Physiology classes. It is so nice to have found esthetic focused health sciences!"     Kathryn C. Waterford, CA
