Licensee Renewal Requirements
Complete four hours of TDLR approved continuing education in the following manner: one hour of sanitation, three hours of cosmetology related topics.
A licensee who is at least 65 years old and has held a cosmetology license for at least 15 years is required to complete one hour of continuing education in sanitation. Courses must be TDLR-approved courses.
Each year the provider must renew their registration in order to offer continuing education courses. Course approvals are valid for one (1) year, assuming the provider’s approval remains current throughout that time.
New continuing education courses must be approved by the Department before being offered. The provider will need to submit a course approval application prior to scheduling of any courses/seminars, a timed topic outline, the course material, and the required course approval fee.
Reporting Continuing Education Hours
Please note that the reporting of continuing education hours is the responsibility of the continuing education provider. Licensees may check their hours at the Continuing Education Courses Look Up. If the hours have not been reported, the licensee should contact the provider first to ensure that the hours are reported. If the reporting issue is not resolved, they have the option of filing a complaint.
