Why Cortiva Institute?
Why should you join are a network of massage therapy and skincare schools
— all united by a common mission and standards that help students, clients and the community thrive?
Dermalogica Partner School
Students and staff receive training from both Dermalogica business consultants and the educators at the International Dermal Institute. They learn the best ways to prescribe treatment plans and home care regimens for their clientele. Skincare students obtain a Professional Dermalogica Esthetics Kit to practice. Skincare students also have the opportunity to graduate Dermalogica Certified.
Job Fairs & Career Seminars
Our Job Fairs & Career Seminars are very popular with our students and have helped them grow and evolve outside the classroom. We invite both local and national vendors to speak with our students about their chosen industries. We also participate in many events throughout the year to give our students the opportunity to practice in a variety of settings (ex. sporting events, fundraisers, health fairs, nursing care facilities, and more!).
The Spa at Cortiva
All of our programs offer hands-on training at our on-campus spa with LIVE clients. You'll learn the art of customer service, client retention, how to sell retail, and to properly prescribe homecare regimens to your clients. We strongly encourage our students to develop a positive rapport with every client they serve - -as we want them to begin building their books here with us and take the clients that love them -- with them!
Growth Through Inspiration & Integrity
Career goals aren’t all that bring us together; students choose Cortiva Institute because we care about the same things you do: innovation and real-world experience hands-on training.
