What is continuing education and can I get it for free?

What is continuing education? I would like to get free continuing education for cosmetologists but I am not sure whether what I consider continuing education is what it actually is. According to me, continuing education is going back to school after some time to get training in a specific area so that you can advance professionally. Is this the meaning of continuing education? If it is, I would like to take my classes at ASHA continuing education when I am ready to further my education. Is this a good idea?

Continuing education is what you have defined it as. It is an education for adults who would like to further their education. In most cases, these programs are requirements by the industry. For instance, people in the insurance and real estate industry are required by the law to get continuing education in order to get re-certified, keep their licenses or upgrade their licenses.  However, there are certain people who decide to go back to school not because it is a requirement but because they believe going back to school will enable them to make career advancements and get increased salaries.

ASHA CE is a great institution for further learning. This institution is committed to providing high quality education and you can be assured that every course is taught by an expert. The best thing about ASHA is that they have campuses in numerous locations. All you need to do is to visit their website and search for the course you want to take. Unfortunately, ASHA does not offer cosmetologists free continuing education. ASHA is language, speech and hearing organization. The only courses you will get at this association are those related to speech, language and hearing such as audiology and speech-language pathology.

However, there is still hope. There are institutions that offer free cosmetology classes for continuing education students. A good example is This website offers amazing cosmetology lessons that will help you to not only be an expert in your field but build a strong brand. You get to learn things like how to create a personal brand, how to leverage your brand in the marketplace, on social media, increasing your income and practical cosmetology skills.

Beauty Academy is also a great option. The advantage of Beauty Academy is that they offer approved education. Apart from this, they are very affordable and they provide expert training to all their students. Therefore, if you are willing to pay for a cosmetology course that will set you up for success, this is a great school to choose.

When making your choice, make sure you compare the courses offered at different institutions so that you can ensure you have chosen the course that offers you the most benefits. It is also a good idea to get recommendations from people who have done continuing education courses in cosmetology. This will enable you to save time that you would have otherwise spent on research.

I wouldn’t encourage anyone to get free continuing education for cosmetologists. This is because you will not get the best training with free courses. In most cases, free courses do not contain all the subjects and topics you need to learn. They might only contain the basic topics which you can easily learn by yourself through research. If your goal is to advance in your cosmetology career and hopefully become a household name in the industry, you need to make an investment in your education. Avoid looking for free courses and consider paying for a high quality course offered by a reputable university. If you are concerned about the cost of tuition, no need to worry, there are plenty of affordable institutions today. You only need to do some research to identify the institutions that are offering the course you want to pursue. This way, you can be guaranteed of quality education.
