NCEA Certified
 Ridgewood, NJ - The National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors & Associations (NCEA) are pleased to announce that an expanded testing partnership in Canada now provides 30  more testing sites for NCEA Certified Candidates to take their exam.

In addition, further expansion with our US-based partner-Comira-has added testing sites so that all states now have the capabilities to meet the growing needs of the industry. Washington joins Utah, Alabama, Virginia, and the District of Columbia as the latest state to recognize the national certification as a way to obtain a Master Esthetician License.

NCEA Certified is the professional status awarded to a skin care professional that has met the competency standards as set-forth by NCEA's 1200 Hour Esthetician Job Task Analysis.
