The New Age Spa Institute is the first and only esthetics, nail technology, makeup artistry and massage school in the state of Illinois with full CIDESCO accreditation, which entitles us to offer students the opportunity of sitting for the CIDESCO International examination. To become a CIDESCO diplomat, you must be a licensed esthetician and have working experience as a beauty therapist for the past 3 years. The CIDESCO examination consists of a full day practical and a written examination. You also will be required to write a 4,000-word thesis on any topic relating to the beauty industry. We are the only school that offers two programs to help you prepare for this intensive examination and obtain your diploma! For both programs, not only will you receive state of the art education, we will also provide you with all learning materials, products, and equipment needed.
