The ICTC continues to follow the Governor’s Wolf’s mandate for school closures. According to the last update, all schools in the Commonwealth will remain closed indefinitely as a response to the COVID-19 mitigation efforts. ICTC has posted it’s Continuity of Education Plan in an effort to inform students and parents about our current plan of instruction.

The ICTC will continue to monitor this situation closely. We are working with sending school Districts, the ARIN IU28, post-secondary institutions and industry certification providers to assist us in offering meaningful educational opportunities to keep our students engaged in the educational process.



The Cosmetology field combines talent, art, science and business, leading to a choice of rewarding careers. The Indiana County Technology Center (ICTC) Cosmetology (COSMO) program offers a state-of-the-art facility meeting all licensing requirements of the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology. COSMO students learn anatomy, cosmetic chemistry, bacteriology and sanitation. Students are taught professional hair, skin, and nail procedures.

In the student-operated patron clinic, COSMO students gain practical work experience and essential communication skills as they cut, style and color customers’ hair; apply skin care treatments and makeup; perform manicures and pedicures; manage the salon including scheduling appointments, ordering supplies; stocking inventory; and sell products.

All areas of this licensed profession are taught for a successful transition to the Cosmetology field. The COSMO program prepares students for the Pennsylvania State Board of Cosmetology License exams and provides a foundation for further training in business management, education, electrolysis, advanced aesthetics and nail technology. Enrolled students will have the opportunity to earn the required 1,250 hours necessary to attain a cosmetology license.
