    Program Description

    Career, Certificate (CC)

    This Cosmetology Program is designed to provide the student with the basics of art, science, and the knowledge and skills needed in the field of cosmetology as well as the general education and fundamentals in management which may be needed in salon operation. The nine month program follows the guidelines outlined by the Board of Registration of Cosmetology. Upon successful completion of 1000 hours of theory and practice required, the student is ready to take the Massachusetts State Board of Cosmetology exam. To qualify for an operator's license the cosmetologist must pass an examination in both theory and practice. After two years of employment, the graduate may apply for licensure as a cosmetologist with the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Cosmetology.

    This program has been relocated to the North Shore Business Center at 30 Log Bridge Road, Building 100 in Middleton. (right off of route 114)
