COSMETOLOGY
Certificate – 1.5 years
The cosmetology program is approved by the Michigan Board of Licensing and Regulation and prepares students to take the State
Licensing Board Examination. Instruction is scheduled for five days a week, seven hours per day and includes over 1,500 hours of
training. Over 900 hours are spent in laboratory work during which students practice and apply services studied in the classroom
setting. A completely equipped cosmetology laboratory and classroom is utilized by students under the direction of a licensed
cosmetology instructor.
IMPORTANT: State regulations require completion of a minimum of 1,500 hours of training and at least 75% average grade in each
subject before the student is eligible to take the licensing exam. The program at Gogebic Community College provides 1,540 hours
during regularly scheduled classes; a limited number of make-up hours will be scheduled each semester. The cost of additional hours
beyond 1650 is not included in the 3 semester program. Courses COS 107 through COS 113 can be selected to complete the desired
hours of training.
WISCONSIN OR MINNESOTA LICENSING: Courses offered can fill the requirements for these states as well as others. Instructors
are able to advise students on the most effective classes available.
