The Cosmetology Program allows you to prepare for the following jobs:
Cosmetologists primarily shampoo, cut, and style hair, but they also may perform manicures, pedicures, and nail extensions. Offering make-up analysis for women, and cleaning and styling wigs are also common duties of a cosmetologist.
Our partnership with Northland Pioneer College (NPC) allows you to earn high school credit from NAVIT and college credit from NPC. You can even earn a Certificate of Applied Science or an Associate Degree of Applied Science in two years with careful planning. This course is taught by an NPC instructor who has had much experience in the cosmetology field. Most importantly, your tuition is paid by NAVIT.
Entry level workers earn about $8.25 per hour; those with some experience can earn more than $14.00 per hour.
The demand for cosmetology services is expected to increase steadily–particularly since hair and nails never stop growing. In addition, 1999 and 2000 proved to have shortages throughout the nation as approximately 50,000 cosmetology-related jobs went unfilled.
