Cosmetology Teacher Course
Objectives | Curriculum | Graduation Requirements
The objective of the Cosmetology Teacher Course is to develop in the licensed cosmetologist the teaching skills, theoretical knowledge and professional attitudes necessary for success in the profession of cosmetology education. The goal of this course is to qualify and equip the student to successfully complete and pass the State of Illinois Licensing Examination. Once they have successfully passed their State Board Exam, they may work in any private cosmetology school in the State of Illinois as a Cosmetology Teacher.
The Cosmetology Teacher Course is 1000 clock hours in length, which can be completed in as little as six months of full time attendance. Approximately one half of the course time is devoted to post-graduate training in cosmetology, the other half is devoted to technical instruction in the areas of educational psychology, teaching methods (theory), teaching methods (practical), and business methods. This half also includes instruction in student teaching (applied) under the direct supervision of an Illinois Licensed Teacher.
