Cosmetologist Certificate Program

About Our Cosmetologist Certificate Program

Simi Institute's Cosmetologist Certificate Program teaches the fundamentals of hair care, skin care, and nail care.  Students will complete a series of courses in hairstyling, hair cutting, hair coloring, permanent waving, make-up, facials, manicuring, and pedicuring.  Students will also learn basic business and salon management skills.  Advanced students will perform a variety of hair, skin, and nail services in our full-service on-site salon.  A culminating state board class will prepare students for the passage of the written and practical California State Board Cosmetologist Licensure Exams.  All of our students are provided with a course schedule that allows them to efficiently complete all operations and hour requirements set forth by the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.  Advanced students will perform a variety of hair, skin, and nail services in our full-service, on-site salon.  Our Cosmetologist Certificate Program can be completed in as little as four levels.  Students must complete minimum operations requirements and a minimum of 1600 total hours for graduation.

We offer both a daytime cosmetologist program as well as an evening/weekend cosmetologist program.  See the class schedules below for meeting days and times.
