Instructor Training

The mission of this program is to prepare students to be skilled cosmetology instructors so that each graduating student may be licensed as a cosmetology instructor and obtain profitable employment.

The program provides an opportunity for the teacher trainee to observe and assist experienced teachers in the performance of daily duties, assist in skill demonstrations to supervise practice teaching as well as to thoroughly study the principles of teaching. The program is designed to install the basic teaching methods and techniques. An instructor trainee must be experienced and proficient in the art and practice of cosmetology prior to beginning the program.
