The State of California requires that any person desiring to conduct business as a cosmetologists, esthetician, manicurists, massage therapists, or Loan Officer and Real Estate Agent must first complete the state required clocked hours and curriculum at a certified school and second pass the state licensing exam. Cosmotek College programs are designed to provide the state required educational curriculum necessary to qualify the student to take the license exam and to enhance the students’ capability to pass the exam, while at the same time prepare the student to actually work in the industry.*The California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology, California Massage Therapy Council (CAMTC), and California Department of Real Estate may and will most likely perform a background check to determine eligibility of the student to take the licensing exam. It is the student’s responsibility to determine if certain past criminal convictions (if any) will prevent them from obtaining the required state license. This is expected to be done prior to enrollment.
