The Cosmetology Apprenticeship program at Madison College is designed to give you real-world, on-the-job training while you work in a salon and attend school. You will be earning income during all phases of the training period, including the hours you attend classes.
In the Salon
You will train a minimum of 32 hours per week under a licensed professional while learning these skills:
- Permanent waving
- Shampooing and deep conditioning
In addition, many apprentices are also trained to give manicures, pedicures, scalp and facial treatments, provide make-up analysis, and clean/style wigs and hairpieces.
An apprenticeship requires at least 4,000 hours of paid training. 288 hours of that training are spent in the classroom.
You will attend class four-and-a-half hours per week over four semesters.

After completing the Cosmetology Apprenticeship program you will be eligible to take the state test to become licensed as a practitioner.
