Three-semester cosmetology program trains Spanish-speaking students
Register now for our new cosmetology Spanish program, which begins in January.
The three-semester continuing education program is designed to teach Spanish-speaking students the skills they need to work in a professional salon. The program will be taught by both Spanish-speaking and English-speaking instructors.
"We decided to begin a cosmetology Spanish program here at JCC because we recognized a need in the Hispanic community for students who are not fluent in English to have an opportunity available to them in Spanish," said Jennifer Wells, director of cosmetology programs at JCC. "It is a part of the college's mission to meet workforce and community needs and it is our desire to reach out, identify the needs and try to execute a plan to meet those needs."
The Cosmetology curriculum is designed to provide students with hands-on training in a simulated salon environment. Course work includes instructions in all phases of professional imaging, hair design, chemical processes, skin care, nail care, multi-cultural practices, business/computer principles, product knowledge, and other selected topics.
Graduates of the program will be skilled in hair styling, hair cutting, sculptured nail technology, skin care, permanent wave and relaxing, and hair color. After students pass the state board exam, they are qualified to work in cosmetology salons and related businesses in North Carolina.
The program is estimated to cost about $1,900. Students may qualify for financial aid or scholarship opportunities.
JCC also offers an associate's degree, diploma, and instructor certificate as well as numerous continuing education courses in cosmetology.
