CIDESCO was founded in 1946 to give Estheticians the opportunity to exchange experiences with their colleagues in other countries.
The aims of CIDESCO are
to promote Esthetics on an international basis;
to unite members on an international and national level;
to create recognised training centres at an international level around the world according to a CIDESCO training programme that leads to the CIDESCO Examination and CIDESCO Diploma;
to promote the exchange of professional knowledge, new developments and information by organising international congresses.
STRUCTURE OF CIDESCO
CIDESCO International has national Sections in 30 countries spread over the five continents. Policy decisions are taken at the annual World Congress. The General Assembly elects a Presidium of Board Members from different countries - the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, General Secretary, Member for Education and Member for Public Relations. The organization is registered in Switzerland (Commercial Register No. 6632) and has its Head Office in Zurich.
CIDESCO WORLD CONGRESSES
60 World Congresses in 25 countries have been held since 1946.
INTERNATIONAL CIDESCO SCHOOLS
Schools approved by CIDESCO International have to provide a training period of at least 1200 hours and follow a training programme. Today, there are over 200 CIDESCO Schools all over the world. Students undergo practical and theoretical examinations which are invigilated by an international Examiner appointed by CIDESCO.
Successful candidates are required to gain at least 600 hours of salon experience before being awarded their CIDESCO Diploma and CIDESCO Badge. Estheticians who have not been trained at an International CIDESCO School but have at least three years’ salon experience can also gain the CIDESCO Diploma by taking the CIDESCO Examination during an annual CIDESCO World Congress, or in a CIDESCO School when the regular examinations are being held, if this is acceptable to the School, or if such examinations are specially arranged by a CIDESCO Section.
