What Are The Texas Continuing Education CE Requirements For Cosmetologists?

For many skilled careers, there are continuing education requirements to ensure that workers are continually providing their clients with the most up to date, high-quality services, and techniques.

If you are a cosmetologist in the state of Texas, your license needs to be renewed every two years and you must complete four hours of continuing education credits. But what does continuing education involve? How many hours are required? What counts as CE credits? Learn all about TDLR continuing education for cosmetology here, and register with CosmoTraining for easy, affordable, and convenient CE credits.

How Many Hours of CE Credits Are Required For a Texas Cosmetology License? 

In order to satisfy the requirements for a Texas cosmetology license renewal, licensees must also complete four hours of continuing education credits. This includes one hour of sanitation, three hours of cosmetology-related topics, as well as the new Human Trafficking requirement that was put in place in 2018. The human trafficking requirement is to teach cosmetologists how to identify victims of human trafficking, how to help, and how to report cases of human trafficking. 

What Courses, Events, or Activities Count as Continuing Education? 

The four hours of continuing education credits required to renew your license includes three hours of elective cosmetology-related topics. While you can find an online course that satisfies this requirement, you may want to take it a step further and look for something different. As long as the course, event, or activity is TDLR-approved and adds up to at least three hours, simply get information on how to receive the credit from the organizers in order to submit to TDLR.

CEs May be Obtained By:

  • Classroom Instruction
  • Lectures
  • Seminars
  • Trade Shows
  • Product Demonstrations
  • Educational Conferences
  • College or University Courses
