Cosmetology Teacher Training for the Next Generation of Professionals

Did you love your time in beauty school? Can you see yourself teaching the next generation of beauty students? The teaching training program at La’ James International College in Iowa can help turn your dreams into reality. Our program is designed to help licensed beauty professionals, like you, learn how to educate those who are just starting their beauty school journey.

What to Expect In Our Cosmetology Teacher Training School

Finding a school that is just as passionate about beauty as you are is crucial when becoming a beauty instructor. Our teacher training program is a graduate level course that can lead to a diploma in the study of teaching methodology and is the prerequisite for state licensure. Before you can apply for this program, you’ll need a current Cosmetology Arts and Science license prior to commencing the program.

We understand how important your career goals are. That’s why our program is built to teach you the skills you need to bring your passion to life. During your time with us, you can grow your skills and learn the techniques in classroom preparation, student communication, documentation, and more!

I chose LJIC because it gave me more options to learn different areas rather than just hair only. You learn nails, the spa side of Cosmetology, and everything else.

Teacher Training Program FAQs

How long is your teacher training program?

Our teacher training program is 1000 hours or 2 years of consecutive experience in licensure discipline. It often follows our cosmetology program schedule or other classes, so training teachers work with our instructors and current students for real experience teaching in a classroom.

What are the prerequisites before applying?

Before you can apply for this program, you’ll need a current Cosmetology Arts and Science license prior to commencing the program.

When do classes start?

LJIC has classes starting every four weeks at each campus. However, not all programs start each month, and a minimum class size may be required for the program to start. For our teacher training program, classes often start a week before our next cosmetology start date.
