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.
