Cosmetology

The Cosmetology program at the Capital Region Career & Technical School teaches students the competencies and professional skills necessary to pass the New York State Board practical and written licensing exams. Only licensed cosmetologists may work in salons in New York State, and to sit for the licensing exam, they must complete a minimum of 1,000 hours of approved instruction. 

Students attend the Cosmetology program for two years, including a required summer school session (120 hours), to satisfy the hours requirement. Students engage in hands-on learning where theory is applied and skills and competencies are strengthened. A clinic open to members of the local community provides students with real life experience in their field.

The program features integrated academics including English/language arts, applied math and science, and practical chemistry, for which some schools grant high school credit in addition to the career and technical program credit.
