North Carolina Cosmetology Additional information:

North Carolina cosmetologists must fulfill a requirement of 24 hours of continuing education to renew their North Carolina cosmetology license.  Our online continuing education classes are approved to fulfill the North Carolina cosmetology continuing education requirements.

That said, not all online and correspondence continuing education courses are approved in North Carolina for license renewal, so before taking a course other than ours you will want to make sure that the course is approved.
