The Certified Professional Electrologist (CPE) credential signifies that the electrologist's knowledge has been tested and measured against a national standard of excellence. The commitment to keep the credential, through on-going continuing education, exemplifies the highest degree of professionalism.
Board certification is going above and beyond initial training. It is a voluntary credential, which requires continuing education pursuits. The board certified electrologist must obtain seventy-five hours of continuing education in a five-year period to maintain this credential, or be re-tested. This speaks of a serious commitment to enhance knowledge and skills. Board certification keeps the electrologist aware of changes in the profession and gives them the tools to respond.
