Texas Cosmetology Additional information
Texas cosmetologists, estheticians, and manicurists must fulfill a requirement of 4 hours of continuing education to renew their Texas cosmetology license. Our online continuing education classes are approved to fulfill the Texas cosmetology continuing education requirements.
That said, not all online continuing education courses are approved in Texas for license renewal, so before taking a course other than ours, you will want to make sure that the course is approved. If your continuing education provider is not approved by the Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing, then the course will not count toward your continuing education hours needed to renew your license.
Do you report my results to the Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing?
Yes, we report all continuing education results directly to the Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing. That way, you can easily renew your license.
Do you offer any continuing education training that is not online?
We offer online continuing education to renew your Texas license. We do not offer any classroom continuing education courses for Texas. We find that most students prefer to complete their continuing education online on their computer, smartphone, or tablet.
Do you provide me with a certificate of completion when I finish your continuing education course?
Yes, all graduates of our Texas cosmetology continuing education courses will receive a certificate of completion. We can either email, mail, or fax the certificate to you.
Do I need to provide my certificate to the Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing to prove that I completed my continuing education when I renew my license?
The Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing may ask you to provide them with a copy of your continuing education certificate, so be sure to hang on to it.
Are these courses approved?
Yes, our courses are approved by the Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing and will fulfill your continuing education requirements.
Do I have to finish the entire course in one sitting?
No, you can complete your entire Texas cosmetology continuing education course today, or over the course of several days, picking up right where you left off.
Can I take this course on my phone?
Yes, our courses are mobile-compatible. You can take our courses on your smartphone or tablet. You can start and stop the course at any time, and resume the course right where you left off.
Do you renew my license for me?
No. Completing your continuing education credits does not complete the renewal of your license. Once you have completed all of your required continuing education, you must pay the Texas Department of Regulation and Licensing the license renewal fees, as we cannot do that for you.
What if I still have questions about completing my continuing education for Texas?
That’s no problem. Just call our continuing education specialists at (888)290-9739 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can walk you through what you need to do to complete your Texas cosmetology continuing education requirements.
