What You'll Learn

Licensure Requirements

At Shore Beauty School, Teacher Training is a 600 hour program teaching the art, science and business of cosmetology and hairstyling education. During the first three hundred (300) hours of the course, learning activities take place in the lecture room and classroom, separate from the "Beauty Clinic," to ensure a quiet and orderly learning environment. Junior students begin with an evaluation of their skills in the art and science of cosmetology and hairstyling. A prescription of remedial education is established and implemented. Commensurate with remedial education, the students begin to increase their responsibilities by beginning, under the observation of the teaching staff, to assist undergraduate students. The experiences of the student instructor during this phase are reviewed in conference with the staff and individual recommendations are made.

During the second three hundred (300) hours of the course, the student instructor moves to the "Beauty Clinic." During this phase of the course, the student’s teacher engages in the same process previously described, however, with the educational needs of the senior under-graduate and the needs of the patrons of the Beauty Clinic as a focus.

As part of this program, students must complete an additional thirty (30) college level, clock hours in educational methods, which course must be approved by the NJ State Board, and is administered off-site by a NJ State approved institution. The cost of the educational methods supplement is determined by the provider and is in addition to Shore tuition.

Shore’s Teacher Training curriculum exceeds the State Board’s standard 500 hour curriculum to better prepare our instructors. Shore incorporates supplements to our educational programs, including Shear Success Business Fundamentals, that we believe enhance our curriculum beyond State Board standards and necessitate additional training for our instructors.

In order to become a licensed skin care professional, you are required to graduate in good standing from Shore, and pass the NJ State Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling’s theory and practical examinations for Skin Care.

Real-world Learning

Part of Shore Beauty School’s mission is to prepare our Teacher Training students for entry-level employment as an instructor or related beauty fields. Shore’s active student clinic provides our students the opportunity to practice and build their skills while performing services on live patrons. Additionally, you will learn Shear Success Business Fundamental, which Shore created as a practical supplement to the Cosmetology & Hairstyling program. Shear Success teaches techniques in building a book of business, networking, marketing, client management and maximizing earnings.
