Cosmetology Instructor

The Cosmetology Instructor curriculum provides a course of study for learning the skills needed to teach the theory and practice of cosmetology as required by the North Carolina Board of Cosmetic Arts.

Course work includes requirements for becoming an instructor, introduction to teaching theory, methods and aids, practice teaching, and development of evaluation instruments.

Graduates of the program may be employed as cosmetology instructors in public or private education and business.

Students may be required to take one or moreĀ developmental courses as a result of pre-enrollment placement tests; therefore, the student may need more than the minimum number of contact hours listed for graduation.

The North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Art will not accept any hours that are over five years old. Therefore, it is the decision of the cosmetology department not to accept any curriculum credits for cosmetology classes that are over five years old.
