The Continuing Education’s School of Cosmetology is an alternative to a Cosmetology Associates Degree for those individuals who need training to enter the workforce sooner or need a flexible schedule to be able to work while they acquire their cosmetology training.

Students will learn the art of cosmetology and prepare for the N.C. Board of Cosmetic Art Examination. In addition, we will offer Natural Hair Specialist, and Shampoo Technician certifications. Students who complete a chosen program will be eligible to take the required N.C. Board of Cosmetic Arts Exams.

This is a great opportunity for numerous reasons:

  • Certification of Completion based on State of N.C. requirements.
