Why Choose A Certified Professional Electrologist
The American Electrology Association (AEA) believes that one of the most important steps an electrologist can take in their career development is to become board certified. For over 25 years the AEA's International Board of Electrologist Certification (IBEC) has been providing that opportunity for electrologists worldwide.
The Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE) credential signifies that the electrologist's knowledge has been tested and measured against a national standard of excellence. The commitment to keep the credential, through on-going continuing education, exemplifies the highest degree of professionalism.
Board certification is going above and beyond initial training. It is a voluntary credential, which requires continuing education pursuits. The board certified electrologist must obtain seventy-five hours of continuing education in a five-year period to maintain this credential, or be re-tested. This speaks of a serious commitment to enhance knowledge and skills. Board certification keeps the electrologist aware of changes in the profession and gives them the tools to respond.
