IAAHS Continuing Education Program

IAAHS Distance Learning 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. 

As part of this course study, we do highly recommend and offer prerequisite learning material that we feel will give students a thorough and better understanding on the causes of skin disease which will help reinforce and clarify further study of the material.  Some of the learning material is pending accreditation and  implementation, and will become available in the near future.  All CE courses come with a Certificate of Completion once all material is completed.   

In conjunction with the online learning material, IAAHS offers Review Books which are available with some modules for further study and mastering of the material. Please check availability on our Book Page.  


Continuing Education


Correspondence Learning

Correspondence learning is a self study program that is a convenient way to obtain a Certificate.  Correspondence learning includes CE material, test questions and answers in book format. 

Certificate of Completion

A Certificate of Completion comes with every CE course.  Once test questions are completed, a certificate of completion will be emailed.  


"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!"

"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.
