Adults interested in careers in cosmetology still have time to register for the fall sessions on the East Brunswick and Piscataway campuses of the Middlesex County Vocational and Technical Schools.

Classes, which begin Sept. 7, are held Monday to Friday in two sessions on each campus: noon to 6:30 p.m. or 3:30 to 10 p.m. in East Brunswick; 8:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or noon to 6:30 p.m. in Piscataway. Students must have a high school diploma or G.E.D.

Dawn Lystad, MCVTS director of adult education, said the tuition is affordable and graduates have a better than 90 percent passing rate on the licensing exams of the state Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling.

Valerie Dobrolosky, an adult cosmetology instructor for 12 years, said the course trains students to work in hair salons, spas and in related areas, such as the entertainment industry.

“It takes passion for hair and passion for communicating with people,” she said. “Our students have a lot of success – some have gone on to become managers or to own their own salons.”

“It’s a good program; you’re almost guaranteed to pass,” said current student Rachel Grecco of Sayreville.  “It’s very hands-on and it’s fun.”

For information, call the East Brunswick Campus at (732) 254-8700, Ext. 1815, or the Piscataway Campus at (732) 985-0717, Ext. 2207 or 2208.

The MCVTS Adult School also offers day and evening programs in practical nursing, and evening programs in electrical technology; heating, ventilation and air conditioning technology; manicuring;  plumbing technology, and skin care, as well as apprentice training in business and office occupations, construction trades and manufacturing industries, and customized training that can be developed to meet the needs of employers.
