Avi Career Training was established in 1995 by Mrs. Naheed Ghassemi. She has over twenty years of experience in Electrolysis, Skin Care & Esthetics, Massage Therapy and Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing.

Skin care and Esthetics has been a basic beauty wellness regimen for European women for hundreds of years, both at home, in spas and salons. Yet in America it has only recently become a subject of interest to the majority. Forty-seven years ago when the first American salon opened for business, only the wealthy thought they could afford this type of service. Today, women and men alike are spending tremendous amounts of time on the care of their skin, and the preservation of their body and whole wellness.

Of course, specialized salons aren’t the only place to find skin care professionals at work. You’ll find them in the growing numbers of spas across the country, behind department store counters, in the executive suites of cosmetic companies, and in cosmetic surgery offices. Statistics tell how fast the field of esthetics has grown over the past few years.

Now, the health care and wellness profession has really begun to skyrocket and supply cannot keep up with demand. AVI Career Training students are often sent out on job interviews well before they graduate. Salon and Medical Spa owners visit our school looking for professional staff recruits. If you choose this profession, and you have the aptitude for it, you will have a busy, rewarding, lucrative career in a nurturing profession that has unlimited possibilities. You will become an anti-aging expert, which is of interest to more people now than it ever has been.

The Institutes provide both theoretical and practical training of Esthetics with Basic & Master Esthetics Programs as well as 1500 hours in Cosmetology. It also offers classes in Permanent Cosmetic Tattooing and General Make-up Artistry.

As Avi Career Training continues to grow, we hope to add other new and exciting programs to our curriculum. The Institute provides both theoretical and practical training to students around the DC Metropolitan area. We use the most up-to-date equipment for sterilization and application to maintain safety while allowing students to learn.

The Instructor to student ratio is, at most, 1:25 with classes available during the day, evenings, or weekends.
