Information Sessions for RVCC Cosmetology, Skin Care Programs Set in July

Learn more about Raritan Valley Community College’s upcoming Cosmetology and Skin Care programs at an information session in July. The sessions will be held July 13 and July 27, both from 5:30-7 p.m., at RVCC @ Bridgewater’s Cosmetology Salon, 14 Vogt Drive (Building B, Room B209-211). RVCC’s next daytime Cosmetology program will begin August 30 and the application process must be completed by July 31. In addition, learn more about the College’s new Skin Care Specialist program that will begin this fall. During the information sessions, prospective students will be able to view and participate in hands-on demonstrations, meet the program director, take part in a question-and-answer segment, and even apply for the program. RVCC’s Cosmetology programs feature an accomplished teaching staff, innovative teaching methods, and opportunities for job shadowing and salon practicum. The programs offer proactive job placement for graduates and other components critical to student success. Financial Aid and industry scholarships are available to students who qualify. Students accepted into either program must attend a New Student Orientation scheduled for August 16 (for the Cosmetology programs) and September 19 (for the Skin Care Specialist programs). According to information from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of hairdressers, hairstylists, and cosmetologists was projected to grow 13 percent from 2014-2024, while employment for skin care specialists was projected to grow 12 percent.
