In 1988 Inge moved from Germany to Canada and brought along her knowledge and passion for the world of esthetics, and her vision to build a world class education centre offering European curriculums and training in the field of esthetics.

Inge and her team of well-educated and internationally accredited CIDESCO instructors continuously strive to deliver the most comprehensive, sought after professional esthetic and laser programs in Canada.
"I believe that the strength of EIE is a blend of experience, discipline, and high expectations of instructors, estheticians, laser technicians, and students and staff. I understand the demand from physicians and spa owners looking for professional individuals to join their team. This can only be achieved by becoming a well versed individual, by being knowledgeable and driven in their respective field of learning and EIE knows how to transform each student into the best they can be. That is the reason why graduating EIE students continue to be sought after by industry professionals, says Inge."
As a teaching facility, EIE offers a large variety of licensed programs and professional certificate courses that enable estheticians to enhance and non-industry individuals to change their career path. Inge's vision and expectations have earned EIE many awards not only as the best esthetic school in Canada but also over the years her students won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals in Skills Canada Competitions.
As a team we are excited to welcome our students to the EIE MediSpa & Laser Training Centre.
It is a great pleasure and honour to assist each of our students on their path to a dream career.
