Education - Cosmetologists
In Maryland, cosmetology schools (both public and private career schools) are regulated by the State.
- Maryland State Department of Education — for public schools
- Maryland Higher Education Commission — for private schools
HB 1600 State Board of Cosmetologists - License Renewal - Continuing Education
This legislation establishes a requirement for licensees to complete six hours of continuing education during each two-year licensing term. While the program takes effect on October 1, 2018, the agency does not have resources at this time to administer this new program. You are encouraged to comply with the requirements in the interest of the health and safety of Maryland citizens. Should you choose to participate in continuing education, please keep records of the courses you take in case the department is able to implement this at a later date.
