How Many Hours Do I Need To Train?

In Ohio, you must complete a program that provides 600 hours of training, in such topics as sanitation and bacteriology, anatomy, and massage. Once you have completed at least 50% of your base training at an approved school, the State of Ohio Board of Cosmetology allows you to begin practicing as an intern at a salon. But first you need to find a school some of which offer partial online training:

Internship

If you wish to complete an internship, you must submit an application to the Ohio Board. Also, read the Ohio Internship program enrollment information, keep track of your hours on the Student Internship Record of Hours form, and submit the final 600-hour esthetics Student-Internship Assessment Report.

Exams and License for Estheticians in Ohio

Once you’ve graduated from skin care school, the State of Ohio Board of Cosmetology will work with your alma mater to schedule your licensing exam. The Board will issue you a temporary work permit that will allow you to work until the date of your exam; however, it will expire on that date that you are scheduled to take your exam.

In order to get your license, you must pass two different exams: a theory and a practical exam. The practical exam requires you to perform services on a mannequin such as set up and client protection, extractions, hair removal, and mask/massage. The written exam will require you to answer 110 multiple-choice questions, testing areas such as the principles of infection and esthetics procedures and practices.

Renewing Your License & Advancing Your Career

Estheticians need to renew their license in odd-numbered years, and must have completed 8 hours of continuing education in that timeframe. If you are ready to be in charge of your earnings, use your creativity and people skills, then you can become an in-demand esthetician in the state of Ohio through formal training. You can get even more advanced by taking medical esthetics courses or microblading training. The added cost of longer advanced classes easily pays for itself in higher wages. Check wages and jobs available on Ohio job search sites.

Estimates suggest that the beauty profession in Ohio is a growing business, and that jobs will increase by almost 23% in the coming years, 2.5 times greater than occupations as a whole. Another way to advance your skills and advance your skills is as a salon or spa manager. Owning your own salon is tough, but if you have the skills, it can be a great boost for your career. You’ll need to complete 2000 hours of work experience in a year, or at least 150 hours of Esthetics Manager Training School. You’ll also have to pass another theory examination.
