AIA FAQ

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 an exclusive insurance provider for 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.

 

How many hours are required to get my license?

Aesthetic licensing varies by state. To see what your state requires, visit our State Board pagedermascope.com/aia/state-board-requirements

 

How many CEUs do I need to renew my aesthetic license?

CEU requirements vary by state and the license that you hold. To see what your state requires, visit our State Board page: dermascope.com/aia/state-board-requirements

 

I signed up for a membership. Now what?

Now that you have joined our association, you will receive an e-mail confirming your membership. This e-mail will contain discount information for each company we partner with. You will receive a member certificate, a member identification card, and a CEU certificate within six weeks. Separately, you will receive your first copy of the monthly trade journal, DERMASCOPE Magazine, within six weeks.

 

Where can I get CEUs?

AIA offers generic continuing education online, in DERMASCOPE Magazine, and at conferences and tradeshows. These educational resources offer CEUs in select states. AIA has partnered with several schools and training facilities across the United States that offer post-graduate education, as well.
