What Our Students Have to SayCausta Barzan, 2013 Graduate
Senior Esthetician, Spa Pure, Vernon
"The best part of the course was the days we spent in the spa for hands-on training. It was great to be able to work with all skin and body types. It's amazing to be working with real clients and so rewarding helping others feel better about themselves."
"I highly recommend the Okanagan College Esthetics program. The teachers are absolutely awesome. The instructor has such great knowledge. With previously owning her own spa she always has the right answers for any path you may choose or any bump in the road you may encounter."
Ashley Reich, 2016 Graduate
"I chose to attend Okanagan College because I have heard nothing but great things about it.
The location is unbeatable, with the best view of Kal Lake and close to home. I just couldn't say no.
Field trips are a blast and they give us a taste of what it's like in the real world."
Aeran Sutton, 2016 Graduate
"I chose Okanagan College because I have only heard good things about the program! The hours worked well for my scheduling and the tuition was within my budget."
