Continuing Education Now Required for ALL Cosmetologists Licensees

Please Note: Due to a recent change in law (PA 99-0427), cosmetologists, cosmetology teachers and cosmetology clinic teachers who were previously exempt from continuing education (CE) requirements due to age (62 years or older) or license experience (25+ years) are no longer exempt. 
Beginning with the 2017 license renewal period all cosmetologists, cosmetology teachers and cosmetology clinic teachers are required to complete their continuing education (CE) hours before submitting a renewal application.   
CE Requirements:
Cosmetologists: 14 hours*
Estheticians: 10 hours*
Cosmetology teachers & cosmetology clinic teachers: 24 hours*     
Licensees should have recently received notification of the opening of the 2017 renewal cycle by email.  Please ensure IDFPR has a current email address on file by visiting IDFPR’s Online Services Portal. The 2017 renewal period for Cosmetology closes on September 30, 2017
