REVIEW MATERIALS
The Center provides review/study materials for purchase.  The materials provided for purchase are a Study Guide, Practice Exam, and a Review Course which is generally held the night before or the day of the exam at the test site location.

Those maintaining a certification must either successfully retest or earn 45 contact hours of continuing education during that three year period.  30 hours must be in the medical esthetic specialty area.
