The Cosmetology Curriculum is designed to provide competency-based knowledge, scientific/artistic principles, and hands-on fundamentals associated with the cosmetology industry. The curriculum provides a simulated salon environment which enables students to develop manipulative skills.
Course work includes instruction in all phases of professional imaging, hair design, chemical processes, skin care, nail care, multi-cultural practices, business/computer principles, product knowledge, and other selected topics.
Graduates should qualify to sit for the State Board of Cosmetic Arts examination. Upon successfully passing the State Board exam, graduates will be issued a license. Employment is available in beauty salons and related businesses.
Because the use of computers is integral to this curriculum, some courses are delivered in an online format for the A.A.S and Diploma programs.
NOTE: The NC State Board has a time limit on multiple choice questions given to pass the licensure exam with no extended time allowed.
