The secret to coming out ahead during a recession? Add a marketable skill while the world is on hold. The right personal services are always in demand.
Why do Electrologists do better than Estheticians during a downturn? Facials are something people want but can live without. Wants are ignored during economic downturns.
Electrolysis is a permanent hair removal service that people need and they'll continue spending on their needs. Why? A good first impression counts when looking for employment. Regardless of your work and educational background, investing in yourself by adding a marketable skill is always a smart move.
Example: During the 2008 recession, we had an increase in enrollment for Estheticians. Our Esthetician students graduated, got licensed and survived the last recession. When the economy recovered, they had a loyal client base and sales surged.
This can be you!
Our instructors are former graduates. At one time, they were exactly where you are today. They graduated, got licensed and started their practices. They’re a wonderful resource!

Question: What are school hours?
Answer: Tuesday & Wednesday, 10am to 5:30pm, Thursday & Friday, 10am to 8pm, Saturday, 10am to 5:30pm. We are open 42.5 hours per week. Closed Sunday and Monday.
Question: During this pandemic, can Electrologists work on clients?
Answer: About 30% of our students come from outside of California. Nationally, the majority of our grads are working. If there’s a total Covid shutdown as there was in California, from March through May, no, no one was working. Since reopening, our Board of Barbering and Cosmetology laid out guidelines for working safe.
Our school prepares our students to become licensed Electrologists for the near and long term. There should be a vaccine available within 6 months, approximately January 2021.
Question: How much of this program is online?
Answer: 45% is completed from home and that’s your theory module.
Question: Do we assist with affordable student housing for out of state students?
Answer: We’ve developed a Housing Registry made up of local residents who rent rooms in their homes to our students. Click here for more details. Rates start at 23 per day and go up to 40 per day.

For many years those of us associated with electrolysis understood that epilators operated at a frequency of 13.5 megahertz. About twelve years ago Dectro International introduced its Platinum line of epilators that operate at 27 MHz. Our horizons were expanded. Their claim is that hair is permanently removed 25% faster and with a degree of comfort previously unheard of. So what are we to make of an epilator that operates at 6.68 MHz?
At the American Institute of Education, we let our electrolysis graduates speak for us! Our state-of-the-art training leads to exciting, financially rewarding careers. Our graduates are some of the most sought after electrologists in the market.
I really loved school at American Institute of Education and I selected it because I heard it was the best program. The experience was amazing even from the first phone call with Ron where tuition, scholarships, program hours flexibility, online access, and timely information is all top notch. The curriculum is national standard and includes all the latest and greatest topics that are hot in the industry.
