Illinois Cosmetology Continuing Education
Illinois Cosmetologists are required to complete 14 hours of continuing education before your license renewal on September 30th of each odd-numbered year. A maximum of 50% (7 hours) of the total CE hours may be obtained through home study or online courses. The other 7 hours must be in the classroom.
Currently, the state of Illinois requires cosmetologists and other professionals to complete 14 hours of continuing education every two years. However, you may be able to meet this requirement through a variety of classes.
