"We teach an 1800 hours course on Managing Cosmetology, a 300 hours course Managing Manicure and a 750 hours course on Managing Esthetics," Wilkerson said. "After completion of the Managing Cosmetology and Managing Manicure courses, and passing the State Board of Cosmetology, students will be qualified to work in, manage or own a salon or nail salon," Wilkerson said.
