Will I be licensed or certified after completing the Beauty Care course?
No. While Stratford's Beauty Care course is extremely thorough, it is meant to serve only as an introduction and does not satisfy the requirements needed to become licensed or certified. Students graduate with a career diploma.

Will this course help me get into cosmetology school?
Stratford's Beauty Care course could be an excellent precursor for more professional training as it can help you gain a lot of important fundamental knowledge, but taking this course does not guarantee placement in another school or career setting. Many schools have their own admissions policies. You would have to contact the school that you are interested in applying to for that information.

Does this course come with any additional beauty care materials?
Since this course focuses primarily on concept, no additional materials are required to complete your studies. All textbooks, study guides, exams and support materials are included.
