Cosmetology Teacher Course Objectives

The Cosmetology Teacher Course is designed to train the licensed cosmetologist in the teaching skills, theoretical knowledge, and professional attitudes necessary to obtain licensure and for competency in entry-level positions in Cosmetology Education.  Upon completion of the course requirements, the determined graduate will be:

  • Prepared to pass the State of Illinois Licensing Examination.
  • Able to apply teaching methods, both theory and practical.
  • Able to effectively manage a classroom.

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.
