Frequently Asked Questions

Do you report my results to the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology?
Yes we report all continuing education results directly to the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology. That way you can easily renew your license.

Why do you only offer 7 hours when 8 hours are required?
We only offer 7 hours of continuing education because the 1 hour of Board rules and laws is only provided by the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology.

Are your courses only approved for the Cosmetology and Managing Cosmetology licenses?
Our 7 hour CE course is only approved for the Cosmetology and Managing Cosmetology licenses. The 2 hour Safety & Sanitation Course is approved for all license types.

Do you offer any continuing education training that is not online?
We offer online and correspondence continuing education to renew your Ohio Cosmetology license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for Ohio. We find that most students prefer to complete their continuing education either online, or out of a course book.

Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish your continuing education course?
Yes, all graduates of our Ohio cosmetology continuing education course will receive a certificate of completion. If you complete the exam online, you will be able to immediately print your certificate. If you mail in your answer sheets, we will either email, mail, or fax the certificate to you.

Do I need to provide my certificate to the Ohio State Board of Cosmetology to prove that I completed my continuing education when I renew my license?
No. Once you complete our continuing education course for Ohio and receive your certificate of completion from us, just save it for your records. Ohio requires that you save the continuing education certificate for a period of two renewals – basically 4 years.

What if I still have questions about completing my continuing education?

No problem. Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)290-9739 or email us at
