I am an aesthetic student. How will joining AIA help me?
Starting a new career can be scary if you don’t have the right support network. As an aesthetic student, you can benefit from our association through continuing education classes, networking opportunities, and access to AIA mentors and advisors. You will also receive a subscription to DERMASCOPE Magazine, which will keep you informed of new procedures, protocols, and techniques being developed in this ever-evolving industry.
How much does liability insurance cost?
AIA does not offer insurance directly through our association. We do have relationships with insurance providers who offer competitive rates to AIA members. Insurance requirements vary by state and services offered in your spa. To obtain a personalized insurance quote, please contact: Professional Program Insurance Brokerage (PPIB) at 415-475-4300 and mention your AIA status.
