PROGRAM OF STUDY
Cosmetology 1500 Hours
Full Time Program: 30 hours weekly
Tuesdays through Saturdays 9:00 am to 3:30 pm
A 1,500-hour program covering all areas of cosmetology, qualifying the student for the NH or VT licensing exams. Approximately one year to completion when attending full time (2 years part time.) The full time schedule meets from 9am to 3:30 pm Tuesday through Saturday.
Our program of study is different and unique in many ways. To insure that students become proficient in each area, we have set achievement standards for each practical skill. In this way each student has a clear understanding of what is expected in the categories of speed, skill and coordination. The academic program utilizes an outstanding library of educational videos and CDs. Our program covers instruction in practical skills as well as such topics as: hair chemistry and biology, chemical reformation, make-up and skin care, salon retailing and professional relationships. Our teaching program does not stop here. Other teaching methods include: guest speakers, technical demonstrations and many small workshops limited to each various skill level. Our overall approach is to use the training techniques which create interest, motivation and total student involvement. The school utilizes a comprehensive computerized student management system that is designed to give monthly feedback to each student regarding their individual progress including grades and attendance as well as their financial records.
Students are required to buy and keep updated a kit of professional tools and textbooks for their training. The student may purchase the kit items on their own from Beauty Industry Suppliers or NESHD will provide each student with their kit. Attendance will be held at abeyance if the student has not purchased a suitable kit approved by the school, one month prior to the start of classes. NESHD reserves the right to make changes or substitutions to the kit items as necessary to respond to the needs of the program.
*All our programs are approved by the National Accrediting Commission of Cosmetology Arts & Sciences, the New Hampshire Board of Barbering, Cosmetology and Esthetics (2 Industrial Park Drive, Concord, NH), and the United States Department of Education. To be licensed by the state of New Hampshire (and states with reciprocal agreements), the student must complete clock hours of training as described in our Catalog. We recognize the incredible diversity of career choices within the cosmetology industry, and that such diversity and strength is founded an each individual’s creative and entrepreneurial intellect. In order to nurture and stimulate growth and development of each student, we use a variety of educational approaches and instructional methods in each of our programs.
