As the Director of Esthetics at Delmar College for 7 years now, nothing could be more rewarding than to realize that your efforts have paid off.
Delmar College has been around since 1950 in Hair Stylist training. When Dan and Carla Cavanagh bought Delmar back in 2010 they had a vision to take Delmar to new heights.
I feel so lucky to have been the candidate they chose to lead the Esthetics side of Delmar. I was hired in 2010 and came to Delmar with only two programs, the Esthetician program, and the Nail Technician program.
I told Dan and Carla when they hired me that I would continue to develop new training opportunities in the Esthetics field. I kept developing new programs even as we upheld Delmar’s 67-year reputation for offering the best training in Alberta!
Since 2010 I have added 9 additional programs to the Esthetics side of Delmar for a total of 11 programs in all. We now run more than one commencement of the Esthetician program, the Nail Technician Program, and the Makeup programs. This allows the opportunity for more students than ever before to come to school at a time that suits their family schedules, and their busy lifestyles.
We have added Infection Prevention Control Certification to every program that Delmar College offers; another first for the Industry in Alberta.
The Esthetics Team we have at Delmar is why our programs continue to be so successful. Without their input into new program development, their professionalism, enthusiasm, and industry experience, we would not be the number one Esthetics training college in Alberta!
Dan and Carla have watched the growth of the Esthetics side of Delmar with pride, even as the Hair Stylist side of Delmar continues to develop and grow; always maintaining the level of excellence long associated with the name, Delmar College.
We are so proud to announce that Delmar College will be opening another campus in Calgary. The Esthetics and Wellness Training Centre will be located at 5769 4 Street SE.
With over 10,000 sq. ft. at the new campus we will offer even more ways to meet the growing need for industry professionals in the Esthetics field. We will be adding more programs, and more commencement opportunities. This campus will be open 7-days a week which will serve our community, and make Delmar a leader in innovative learning.
We take possession of the new building July 1, 2017 and will move the entire Esthetics team along with all the Esthetics programs in October 2017.
This level of recognition for what the Esthetics side has brought to Delmar speaks to me about where the Esthetics Team can take our industry, and for that, I couldn’t be prouder.
With dedicated owners, a stellar team of Esthetics Professionals, and the room to grow, the sky is the limit.
