Objectifs du programme

The aesthetics vocational training program aims to train aestheticians.

As part of their tasks, aestheticians administer aesthetic care to different clients, with the help of techniques that use specialized products and equipment, with the goal of improving and maintaining a person's appearance, and this, also producing physical and psychological well being.

Before starting treatment, the aesthetician gathers information from the client. The skin, nails and body hair are examined as needed.

The aesthetician performs basic or specific aesthetic care for the face, neck, chest, back, hands and feet. An aesthitician can apply makeup for an occasion, and can remove hair from different parts of the body using specialized products.

Furthermpre, an aesthetician offers consultation services, sells care packages, cosmetic products and personalized services. They plan and organize their work, perform receptionist duties, ensure client follow up, perform administrative tasks and take care of the work place and materials. Aestheticians also make sure to stay up to date in their training.

Préalables fonctionnels

Une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans peut être admise à un programme d’études menant à un Diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP) sur la base des préalables fonctionnels. Ces préalables fonctionnels, prescrits pour une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans à la date de début de fréquentation déclarée dans le programme d’études professionnelle sont : la réussite du test de développement général (TDG) et l’obtention et la réussite des épreuves relatives aux préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique, s’il y a lieu.

Ce tableau indique les nouveaux codes de cours de la formation de base commune (FBC) et de la formation de base diversifiée (FBD) exigés pour les préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique pour le programme d’études visé. Dans le contexte où les nouveaux codes de cours de la FBC et de la FBD sont en implantation progressive, on indique entre parenthèses les anciens codes de cours toujours valides.
