Northland Pioneer College is accepting students until May 30 for its Introduction to Cosmetology course offered in Show Low and Winslow. Fall classes begin Thursday, Aug. 1.
This 10-credit hour course provides demonstration and hands-on instruction in all competencies necessary to perform cosmetology services, going beyond the basic hair cutting and styling to cover the areas of manicure, pedicure, tinting, facials, ethics and shop management. The introductory course provides state-mandated 300 hours of cosmetology instruction and is the foundation for other courses required to meet the 1,600-hour training requirement for state licensure.
Applicants must be at least 16 years old and present a high school diploma, GED or proof of at least completion of 10th grade. Applicants must also present an Arizona state ID or picture identification, and verify their U.S. residency status. Your local NPC campus or center can provide details about required documentation.
NPC’s program prepares students to successfully complete the state licensing exams at nearly a third of the cost of attending classes at 55 other public cosmetology training centers in Arizona. Classroom and hands-on instruction combine to prepare the serious student for the cosmetologist state exams.
