CND Shellac Brand Certification

After class workshop opportunities exist for students to receive their CND Shellac Brand Certification. The most recent CND Shellac Brand Certification seminar took place on April 26, 2016.

The 30 attendees received a three-hour review of waterless manicuring, Shellac application and LED light technology from Laura Merzetti, CND Education Ambassador.

CND has partnered with Humber College to be the only Canadian college hosting this special certification process.

The students were initially educated through a Humber Spa seminar and proceeded to practice and hone their skills throughout Lab 1/2 and 3/4. They have now completed the process of becoming CND "Shellac Certified Pros". The students will now be listed on the CND website, and featured on the salon/spa locator. These students also have access to proprietary and professional information, continuing education courses, and CND product launches.


  • Upon graduating, Humber Students in the Esthetics/Spa Management program will receive their recognized “Dermalogica Certificate” which will automatically achieve “Dermalogica Certified” status for the student.
  • Being “Dermalogica Certified” will allow them to jump ahead in The Dermalogica Expert program and therefore jump start a career with any Dermalogica Skin Centre.
  • This status is achieved by completing Product Knowledge Training on Dermalogica Retail products as well as Dermalogica Professional products.
  • This will be tracked in the Dermalogica booking system to allow immediate recognition, should or when the Skin Therapist chooses to continue her career with Dermalogica.

This process has added additional esteem to our graduates and current students' resumes, as many working professional estheticians do not yet possess CND certification.
