PCI Publisher and Best-Selling Author Becomes NCEA Certified

Susanne Warfield, PCI Journal's Publisher , Author, and a 27-year Esthetician, is now NCEA Certified. 'This voluntary certification will show our state regulatory boards the standards that we want our profession to aspire to, and further assist the boards in their role of protecting consumers,' states Ms. Warfield. 'By becoming NCEA Certifed, this will provide NCEA with the political clout it needs to get legislators to listen and support bills providing higher education & standards, so that skin care professionals can meet the technological advancements facing our industry.'

The launching of the NCEA Certification Program was the culmination of seven years of hard work and commitment by NCEA's membership. The coalition's 14 Association members, 90+ Manufacturers/Distributors and 1,000+ Individual members united and committed to the goals of 'defining and conveying standards of practice' for the skin care professional.

NCEA secured the use of the 1200 Hour Esthetician exam provided by the National- Interstate Council of State Boards of Cosmetology (NIC) for use in the NCEA National Certification Program. In a continuing effort to raise the standards for the profession, Warfield urges all skin care professionals to become NCEA Certified and support National Standards, Mobility, and International Recognition for our profession.
