Continuing Education

“Our CE programs are nationally recognized”

Welcome to “ CONTINUING EDUCATION” for the beauty and barber industry leaders and educators.  Our online CE Certification allows for you to access and complete classes anywhere at any time.  All of our classes are designed to help raise the bar of education and training, enhance the beauty & wellness industry as well as increase your revenue. Whether you need CE certification to meet your state requirements, or simply want to enhance your skillset or educator skills, these courses will enrich your personal and professional knowledge.  

Even after receiving a cosmetology license, most states require cosmetologists to take continuing education courses before they can renew their licenses. Continuing education helps ensure that cosmetologists are up to date with industry techniques, laws, safety, and best practices. Even when not required to earn continuing education credits, cosmetologists may opt to take courses anyway. If you’re licensed as a cosmetologist, barber, braider, hair designer, nail technician, natural hair stylist, esthetician or instructor; almost every state requires continuing education before renewal. We’re updating our state list daily. Check out our CE courses and let me help you renew your license. All courses are 100% online. It’s a quick, easy and informative process!​

Continuing education helps cosmetologists learn new techniques and stay on top of trends. They can also take continuing education courses to enhance classes to become master cosmetologists or cosmetology instructors.
