Education Details

Safety and sanitation are two main topics in continuing education courses. Failing to meet standards in this area can lead to costly fines for you and your salon, so it may be worth your while to take a short sanitation class every year. Refresher courses are also available for those who simply want to brush up on all of their cosmetology skills. These courses tend to be slightly longer than other offerings, as they touch on core and advanced skills. If you want to work in salon management or ownership, professional development CEU courses may be right up your alley. These courses may focus on industry techniques and expectations, management skills in beauty settings, and small business skills.
