Course length: 1600 hours
Students are taught Cosmetology theory and practical applications throughout their entire education. There are two levels to the training: Junior level and Senior level.
During the first 350 hours of training a student is called a Junior Student. This student level works in the Junior theory class and the Junior lab. Students are given lectures, have written assignments, projects, and tests. They participate in hands-on demonstrations and practice practical assignments on manikins and other students.
Once a Junior student has accumulated 350 hours and has satisfactorily passed a preliminary
practical exam, the student is promoted to the Senior level. At this level students are assigned a styling station in the student salon. Once there, they are taught the skills necessary for performing all aspects of cosmetology services on paying guests. Students who are performing services in the student salon are supervised by a licensed Cosmetology Instructor.
Students at the senior level are taught more advanced practical techniques and theory concepts. Their education continues with lectures, demonstrations, and practical assignments on manikins and other students as well as paying guests of the student salon.
