Minnesota Cosmetology Continuing Education 4-hour Renewal Course

Beginning August 1, 2014, all operators and salon managers will need 4 hours of continuing education credits (CE's) to renew their license, this course is in addition to the current work hours or refresher courses previously required. Course requirements: 3 credit hours must pertain to health, safety, and sanitation; and 1 credit hour on laws and rules. The M State Cosmetology Department has developed the 4-hour Renewal Course and will begin offering it on our campuses in April 2014. This course meets the Continuing Education requirements for the Minnesota Board of Cosmetology.

Each licensee who wishes to renew an active operator's or manager's license must complete a 4-hour Continuing Eduction Renewal Course within their 3 year license cycle .

Upon completion of this course the student will receive a certificate of completion that must be included with renewal application forms at the time of submission.

M State will offer this training in-person via ITV, an interactive training experience, where instructors are broadcast on TV screens throughout the rooms set up on each of our campus locations. The instructors are on our Wadena campus, and broadcast to the other locations. This type of training allows for the participants to actively participate as if they are in the same room as the instructor, and allow for flexibility and convenience to not have to travel great distances to receive training. The attendee registers for the location of their choice based on availability. Attendance for this course is mandatory.

M State is not affiliated with the MN Board of Cosmetology. We did not enact this law, sit in on the Board to pass the law, nor did we have any connection as to how the law was written. M State saw the need to offer this training in our region to make training more accessible to salon professionals.
