Are you a Georgia Master Cosmetologist, Georgia Nail Tech, or  Georgia Esthetician who needs continuing education hours to renew your license?

If so, here are a few tips on selecting the right class 


 

February 14, 2014

 

There has been a lot of confusion out there about what Georgia Cosmetology licensees need to do for their continuing education before each license renewal. We have compiled a few tips to help you navigate the continuing education waters and avoid common pitfalls that we have seen. 

 

Tip 1. First, find out if you need to take CE

Almost all Georgia Master Cosmetologists, Nail Techs, and Estheticians will have to complete 5 hours of continuing education before they renew their license every two years. However, there are a few exceptions, and you do not have to take CE before your renewal if you fall in to one of these three categories:

 

(1)  It is your first license renewal (i.e. you became licensed for the first time during the current renewal period and it will be the first time you have ever had to renew your license)

(2) You have been licensed for 25 years or longer. You can find a Cosmetology Continuing Education Waiver Request Form on this page if you qualify for this.

(3) You can demonstrate a significant hardship (check with the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology for details if you have a hardship case to make)

 

Tip 2. Select an approved CE provider!!!

This is the most important tip. If your class provider is not approved by the Georgia State Cosmetology Board, then the class will not count towards your continuing education hours needed to renew your license.  So you are probably wondering, who is approved to provide cosmetology continuing education for Georgia? There are two equally valid groups.

 

The first group are those companies who are registered by the Georgia State Cosmetology Board. They earn this registration by submitting information about their classes to the state, and if the state deems their classes acceptable, they are approved and issued a registration number. These companies should include their registration number on their web site and in their promotional materials so be sure and find this before you sign up for one of their cosmetology continuing education classes. HairDirections’ Georgia continuing education provider registration numbers are 2012-0004 and 2012-0040. Some companies also include a link to their approval letter from Georgia right on their web site, such as we did here on our state CE approvals page.  If you are ever in doubt, call the company or email them to double check that their classes have indeed been approved.  

 

The second group of people who are approved to offer these CE classes are schools under the jurisdiction of the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia, the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG,  formerly known as the Department of Technical and Adult Education or DTAE), Department of Technical and Adult Education (DTAE), the Department of Education, or any accredited postsecondary institution.  These groups may not have gone through the approval process listed above, but their classes may still count towards your Georgia cosmetology license renewal. Since these groups do not have a registration number that you can check, we recommend that you contact the college and the Georgia State Cosmetology Board to verify that a particular class will fulfill your cosmetology CE requirements (also see Tip 3 below about selecting the right classes).

 

A word of caution here: just because a provider is approved by the Georgia State Cosmetology Board, it does not mean that ALL of their classes will be accepted for the 5 continuing education hours that you need. You have to select a class that is approved for your Georgia license type that also includes the elements listed under Tip 3 below.  As an example, you can see that all of our classes on this page list Georgia Master Cosmetologists, along with several packages that fulfill all 5 of CE hours.

 

Tip 3. Select the right CE classes

The 5 hours of cosmetology continuing education has to include a 3 hour health and safety class and a 2 hour elective. The health and safety class has to follow a very specific curriculum established by the Technical College System of Georgia (commonly referred to as TCSG), but it does not have to be taught by TCSG.  Note that TCSG used to be called DTAE.  The Georgia State Board of Cosmetology gives quite a bit of latitude when it comes to the 2 hour elective, and lots of different classes can qualify for this as long as they are an approved class offered by an approved provider (as previously explained in Tip 2).

 

To give you an idea of some of the 2 hour electives that are available, here are four of them being offered by HairDirections, all of which are approved by the Georgia cosmetology board:

 

          Continuing education elective #1: Fashion Forecasting for Master Cosmetologists

 

          Continuing education elective #2: Color Geek for Master Cosmetologists

 

          Continuing education elective #3: Success for Master Cosmetologists, Nail Techs, and Estheticians

 

          Continuing education elective #4: Nail Art Nympho for Master Cosmetologists and  Nail Techs

 

While all four of the cosmetology CE classes listed above are very different from one another, they are all acceptable for meeting the 2 hour CE elective requirement imposed by the Georgia Board.  

 

Tip 4. You can complete your 5 CE hours online

Yes, this is true, Georgia allows online cosmetology CE classes for Master Cosmetologists, Nail Techs, and Estheticians. This can be a really convenient way to complete your CE, and it usually costs less than attending a live class. Technology has progressed to the stage where content rich online CE classes are now available which include videos, graphics, and other really fun elements that can almost make it feel like a live class. Some of these online classes also let you finish over multiple sittings so you do not have to complete it all at once. We love that part, as a lot of us in the industry are busy and the flexibility this creates is nice. HairDirections offers these new online cosmetology CE classes on this page

 

Georgia continuing education providers are not allowed to include a test with their online cosmetology CE course.  If any Georgia CE provider says their class includes an exam BEWARE! They are either not following the requirements, or worse, they are not registered. If you have friends who are licensed in other states, they may have to take an exam for their online CE class, but that is not the case for Georgia Cosmetology licensees. 

 

Tip 5. Get your moneys worth

If you are shelling out your hard earned money, you might as well get something for it rather than just a piece of paper to show the cosmetology board. Pick a class that will allow you to raise your career to new heights by learning a new skill, inspiring you, or simply refreshing things you may have forgotten since you went to school. The least expensive class may not be the best use of your time and money. The price of HairDirections’ continuing education classes are very competitive and we have also worked extremely hard to create practical classes that will help you excel in your everyday work as a cosmetology professional.

 

Tip 6. Complete your CE early

The deadline for completing your continuing education and renewing your license is as follows:

                Georgia Master Cosmetologists  - March 31 of even numbered years  

                Georgia Estheticians - August 31 of odd numbered years

                Georgia Nail Technicians - August 31 of odd numbered years

                Georgia Hair Designers - September 30 of even numbered years

 

You can expect a reminder form the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology approximately 6 weeks before this deadline. We recommend that you complete your GA cosmetology CE early, and do not wait until the last minute. This will allow you to find a class that is a good match for you and finish it before your Master Cosmetologist, Nail Technician, or Esthetician license renewal deadline.  

 

Whew! That was a lot of information! We hope this news article helps you select the right class and cleared up any confusion you may have had. You can browse a list of approved CE classes here.  If you still have questions give HairDirections a call at  (608) 235-2622 or contact us via email and we would be happy to help.  You can also visit the Georgia State Board of Cosmetology’s web site.
