How Many Hours of Continuing Education Are Required For Cosmetology License Renewal in Texas?

Being a cosmetologist, whether you’re a manicurist, esthetician, or eyelash extension specialist, requires months to years of training in order to get your license, as well as biannual continuing education and license renewal. 

A Texas cosmetologist license needs to be renewed every two years, and in order to renew the license, you are required to complete four hours of TDLR-approved continuing education. This includes one hour of sanitation and three hours of elective cosmetology related topics. 

CosmoTraining is a Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation approved continuing education provider. Our course satisfies the four-hour requirement for TDLR continuing education in cosmetology and includes one hour of sanitation as well as the new Human Trafficking requirement that was put in place in 2018.

The Human Trafficking Component of TDLR Your Continuing Education in Cosmetology

This component of the continuing education includes activities that are commonly associated with human trafficking, how to recognize and assist victims, as well as how to report cases of human trafficking. This training enables business owners and employees to learn how to prevent human trafficking and its victims. TDLR requires that businesses display a sign that raises awareness and provides information that can help both victims, cosmetologists, and customers. If you are a business owner and don't have this sign displayed, you could be facing fines.
