Electrology Programs for Virginia

Virginia, known as "Old Dominion" or "The Mother of States," is what we refer to as an unlicensed state, which means it does not regulate the practice of electrology through licensing. If you are interested in becoming an electrologist in Virginia, you can easily do so by taking any one of the three electrology programs offered here at AIE. Despite being an unlicensed state Virginia does have a professional electrology association, the Association of Virginia Electrologists, so you may join both this and the national American Electrology Association upon graduation from one of the AIE programs described below.

Your first and best option to become an electrologist in Virginia is to complete our 600-hour licensing program and sit for our California state electrology licensing exam. You can then call yourself a "Licensed Electrologist," showing the standard of your education and boosting your credibility in a state that does not require all electrologists to be licensed.

Your second training option is AIE's 600-hour training program that does not lead to licensure. This program is a little shorter and is also less expensive because there is no licensing exam preparation. Although the practical training is therefore shorter by two weeks, in every other respect this training is identical to our licensing program and you'll still get a great start to your new career.

Your third option is enrolling in our 350-hour training program. This program is based upon our 600-hour licensing curriculum and the theory taught is identical, but in-school training is reduced to 4 very comprehensive weeks. (In-school training for all of our programs can be taken in one session or in one week increments.) This 350-hour program meets the American Electrology Association's (AEA) minimum standards for electrology instruction and allows graduates to take the AEA's Certified Professional Electrologist exam that is offered each year. Passing the CPE exam allows graduates to use the letters CPE after their name. This CPE title is seen as an extremely valuable asset by many electrologists that operate in unlicensed jurisdictions such as Virginia.

Testimonials

AIE creates success from start to finish. The program is excellent, and I was able to attend school while working a part-time job. The schools success rate for passing the CA State Electrology Exam is unparalleled. In addition, they have been there for me to this day, years after graduating. I now have a successful business with other electrologists working for me! I highly recommend AIE.
