Electrology: A Rewarding Career
An electrologist-patient/client relationship is often a personal one. Great satisfaction can be derived from helping others achieve a better self-image. Whether you have a desire to be self-employed or wish to work with other caring professionals, a career in electrology can provide:
- professional and personal satisfaction in helping others
- opportunity for challenge and self-growth
- flexible hours
- financial independence
For a minimal investment - generally under $10,000 - you can establish your own practice. Most electrologists are, in fact, entrepreneurs - independent professionals and business people in private practices. Others work either under an experienced electrologist, where other allied health services are provided, or in a cosmetology related environment. Which ever you choose, you can earn a substantial income and achieve the financial independence you've always desired. It is estimated that the full-time, established electrologist averages between $25,000 and $50,000 per year. You can set your own work schedule and maintain business hours on the days of your choice.
Obtaining an education in electrology is relatively inexpensive when compared with other professionals of similar income potential. In most states, electrology is a licensed profession.
The AEA Is Here To Help You Achieve Success
For over four decades, the American Electrology Association, a nonprofit organization with over 2,000 members worldwide, has been dedicated to the professionalism of electrology practitioners.
An internationally recognized certification program, inaugurated by the AEA in 1986, is governed by the International Board of Electrologists Certification (IBEC). The Board certification examination was developed as an additional credential to licensing, in conjunction with, and administered by, the prestigious Educational Testing Services of Princeton, New Jersey. The AEA's Office of Continuing Education is affiliated with The National Council on The Continuing Education unit.
Once you have completed your electrology training and passed your IBEC Board certification examination, you will become a Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE). You will also be advised of and encouraged to participate in continuing education programs to keep abreast of pertinent knowledge related to the practice of electrology and to maintain Board certification.
