The SC Esthetics Association’s mission
is to provide support for its members,
monitor industry standards and encourage
goodwill, mutual respect and understanding
between its members, the public,
governments and beauty professionals.
With our focus on education, SCEA offers South
Carolina approved, continuing education credit
courses for estheticians and cosmetologists who
are interested in enhancing their educational
background. We offer small, hand-on classes
that allow our students the opportunity to practice
what they learn. Our classes have received the
ultimate compliment of having many of our
students come back year after year to fulfill
all of their educational needs.
We're approved! Our 2016 calendar has been
approved. Please see our course calendar
tab for the complete calendar including new
course topics and locations. Most of our 2016
dates are now on Sundays, for your convenience.
Our continuing education deadline has changed.
You have until February, 2017, to take a class
and still renew before March 10, 2017, without
penalties or late fees, from the SC Board of
