COSMETOLOGY: Cosmetology Course.  The objective of Cosmetology Courses which is taught in English and Spanish language, is to develop in the student the practical skills, theoretical knowledge, and professional attitudes necessary for success in the profession and to qualify and equip the student to pass the California State Board licensing examination. After the graduate has successfully passed their state board exam, they are qualified to work as a licensed cosmetologist in any licensed facility in the state of California. They may cut hair, perform hair styling, perform all phases of manicuring, apply make up and give skin care (within the scope of the license) for profit.

The Cosmetology Course is 1600 hours in length, which can be completed in less than ten months of full time attendance. Approximately 270 hours (17%) of the course time is devoted to technical instruction, which consists of various learning activities in a classroom situation. The balance of the course time is devoted to practical operations, in which students develop and practice cosmetology skills under the supervision of licensed instructors in actual working conditions.
