Campbellsville University's Technology Training Center will begin a new cosmetology certificate program Oct. 1, according to an announcement from Carol Sullivan, director of the Technology Training Center.

Applications for the program are now being taken, and interested students can apply online at www.campbellsville.edu by selecting apply now and then the cosmetology application.

Financial aid is available for the cosmetology program. Applicants will need to also complete a free application for federal student aid and have information sent to CU.

Those in the class, which is limited to 20 students, will perform 1,800 clock hours in clinical class work and scientific lectures with 450 minimum lecture hours for science and theory and 1,305 minimum clinic and practice hours and 45 hours of applicable Kentucky statutes and administrative regulations.

Upon successful completion of the instructional/clinical program, Sullivan said, the graduate is prepared to take the apprentice cosmetology examination. After successfully passing the practical and written Kentucky state board exams, the student is a licensed apprentice cosmetologist.

She said licensed apprentice cosmetologists must serve a six-month apprenticeship under the direct supervision of a licensed cosmetologist.

Sullivan said the classes will begin three times a year - in October, January and May.

The program will be at the Cosmetology Program Facilities at 210 Nancy Cox Drive in Campbellsville, and lecture hours will be in the cosmetology classroom building, next to the cosmetology salon building at 212 Nancy Cox Drive.

Clinic and practice hours will be in the cosmetology salon building.

Sullivan said classes will meet from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday for 32 hours per week.

Students will spend the first 300 hours in fundamental class work and scientific lectures. After successful completion of the first 300 hours, students will have theory class each day from 8 to 9 a.m., then will have clinic and practice hours the remainder of each day.

The cosmetology salon building will be open to the public for services by the students beginning in November and will be open Monday to Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
