In Mississippi, it is required that you do the full 600 hours of training and schooling, and you must be 17 years of age for you to sit in for the exam to become an esthetician. If you are not done with high school, you must show you have the equivalent to a high school diploma, via a GED, and it is also required that you pass a formal test in order to show you are competent to do the work.You will be required to renew the license you receive on a two-year interval as the license is valid for this period. You can also get a master of cosmetology credential by doing an additional 16-hour training course, and by passing the appropriate exam. If you are coming from out of state, reciprocity does apply, as long as you have done a similar number of training hours, in order to be able to do the work at a competent level when working with your clients.If you are a business owner, a professional coverage of liability is going to be required of you. This is going to protect you from personal injury, from claims that are caused if a client is hurt by equipment, if they slip and fall, or if certain things are done by your employees when they are on the property. You are going to be able to find varying levels of coverage; so find the best rate possible for the most coverage for your business. As a business owner, you can also partially cover the licensed estheticians who work for you, when you have the correct business policy in place.
In terms of an individual policy, there is no requirement for you to buy a personal, Mississippi esthetician insurance coverage policy in the state. But, to protect your license, for you to protect your work and schooling, and for you to avoid high-cost malpractice claims if you are found to be liable, your personal protection is the only way for you to protect yourself from such claims. So, you should consider the coverage. Not only is it a great way to shield yourself from claims, both valid and the false claims which are filed against you, it is also the simple solution to keep your license intact, if you are found to be guilty of malpractice under certain cases and claims which are filed in this field.
