All instructor continuing education courses must be pre-approved by the Board.*
To renew an instructor license, 45 hours of continuing education are required:
30 hours of teaching-methodology courses
15 hours of clinical practice courses
*Courses completed at an accredited college or university (not from licensed cosmetology schools) may be applied toward your instructor license renewal, and are exempt from pre-approval by the Board. Each relevant teaching methodology or clinical practice course may be counted as 15 hours of instructor continuing education. Completion of these courses may be proven (if your renewal application is audited) by submitting an unopened, official transcript.
**Ensure you are looking at the list for the year which you would like to take the course.**
