A Message from Ron Davis, Director / Owner

Thank you for visiting our site. As an online consumer myself, I've frequently wished that websites would just cut to the chase, so that's what I've done for you.

The following bullet points answer questions that I'm asked daily. In short, this is what you really need to know about completing an Electrology program that will lead to the professional designation of "Licensed Electrologist".

Now, if you are new to Electrology as a method of permanent hair removal and would like to learn why it's the only FDA approved method of permanent hair removal, call me. My number is 888-844-4247. For those of you who live in different time zones, we can make arrangements to speak after-hours as needed.

I take your decision to change careers seriously so I'll answer your questions without a sales spin. I've found that a simple presentation of our Features and Benefits works to everyone's benefit. Though this list will answer the most important questions, I know that I can't anticipate your thought process so call me if you need further clarification. I'm always pleased to hear from you.

Tuition Loans Can Help Finance an Education in Electrology

If you have decided it's time to take the plunge and better yourself by getting training in electrology, the next step is figuring out how you'll finance it. Of course, earning and paying your tuition as you go is a great way to go, but the fact of the matter is that some people simply don't have the ability to do this. And, given that you want to get your training and move on with your life, sometimes it's just not feasible to scale back your class load to fit your budget.

If any of this sounds familiar, you will be thrilled to know that now, there are financing options available to you. Whether you need a loan to cover tuition, or something to aid with the expense of purchasing your Electrology equipment, you'll be pleased to know that there is help available.

Tuition Loans: Assistance with Paying for Your Education and Training

The primary expense that most students need help addressing is the cost of tuition. This is particularly true when tuition payments are made in lump sums at the beginning of each semester or educational period.

Fortunately, there are many ways to get assistance in paying tuition. For example, for students enrolling in American Institute of Education's Electrology program, we offer students the opportunity to enroll using our Tuition Prime payment plan.

Tuition Prime: Pay as You Go. Tuition Prime allows students to pay for tuition, interest free, in monthly installments. At the end of the program you have paid your tuition in full, and you can go out and begin your career in Electrology unhindered by student loan payments. What's more, if you are enrolled in the Tuition Prime program and your schedule changes, you can adjust your payments as well. This degree of payment flexibility matched to one's enrollment timeline is rarely found in Electrology schools throughout the country. Needless to say, this offers relief from worry about funding at a critical time, when you should be focused on learning.

Tuition Prime provides you with the flexibility to pay your tuition as you go. Perhaps best of all, this program is available to all students, regardless of the status of their credit history.

Tuition Plus: Pay as You Earn. If you are interested in financing your education through AIE, but you just can't make the payments necessary for Tuition Prime, we have another great option for you: Tuition Plus. The Tuition Plus program allows you to spread out the repayment of your loan for up to 24 months.

This means that if you want to really focus on your career and finish your training in 4 months, you can use the Tuition Plus program to pay for it while you put your energy into getting your training and education. Your monthly payments are established upon enrolling and you can pay over 24 months, at a monthly rate, that's usually less than paying directly as you go, through Tuition Prime. Additionally, Tuition Plus gives you the freedom to focus on your studies without allocating large amounts of time to working at this point in your career. Later, when you're earning more by using your electrology training, you can make additional payments on the tuition and training that made the higher wage possible.

Tuition Plus Features: We offer 6-month same as cash terms. If you pay the balance in full within 6 months, all interest payments made to that point convert to principal making all of your previous payments interest free.

Tuition Plus loans can be paid off at any time without pre-payment penalties, a real bonus should your financial circumstances improve. You won't be locked into a fixed timeline for payment.

Consumer Loans: Other Options. Of course, depending on your circumstance, you might find that other loans are a good fit for you, as well. Many banks and other lending institutions will provide loans of varying terms to people just like you. You can negotiate directly with the bank on things such as the duration of the loan, the interest rate, and the size of your monthly payments.

What's more, consumer loans give you the flexibility to use the money where you need it. Whether you need some way to pay the bills while you're in school, a loan to pay tuition and fees, or some other reason, how you use the money is up to you.

Consumer loans are often unsecured loans. To understand what this means, you first have to know how a secured loan works. A secured loan is one in which the lending institution gains an interest in your property in order to ensure repayment. If you don't repay, the lender may seize your property and sell it in order to get the money back. Examples of secured loans are loans to purchase a house or a car.

Because consumer loans are unsecured loans, the interest rate may be slightly higher than with a secured loan. You can usually negotiate a better interest rate if you have good credit. If you don't have good enough credit—or if you have never taken out a loan so you don't have any credit at all—you can still sometimes get a better rate if you can get someone such as a parent or other family member to co-sign the loan with you.

Consumer loans are regulated by the federal government to protect consumers such as yourself. As such, using a consumer loan to pay for your training in electrology is a viable option if you choose not to use the Tuition Plus or Tuition Prime options.

Equipment Loans: The Funding You Want to Obtain the Equipment You Need

A career in Electrology can be rewarding and fulfilling. However, there are some vital things you'll need in order to succeed. One such thing is the equipment that you'll use on a daily basis.

A basic epilator setup can cost a few thousand dollars. If you simply don't have the necessary capital readily available, here at AIE, we can make it easy for you to get the equipment you need.

We finance your purchase of an electrology device from one of our list of approved vendors. The payments for the device can be stretched over a 24-month period. This gives you the time you need to embark on your career in electrology and begin generating the revenue to pay for the equipment.

With our equipment loans, we offer 6-month same as cash terms. So, if you pay the balance in full within 6 months, you don't pay a cent in interest. Additionally, all equipment loans can be paid off at any time without prepayment penalties. It doesn't get any easier than this when it comes to purchasing the equipment you need. A simple credit application is submitted and you'll hear back usually within two days.

Electrolysis Reimagined

Electrolysis machinery

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?
