Every year, private post-secondary schools (for-profit trade schools) throughout the country are required to post their results on their websites. This allows prospective students to evaluate whether the school to which they apply can provide value for the money the student invests in their education.
Students leave schools for a variety of reasons. Some students move. Others decide that the hours of study are not for them. Others need to join the workforce immediately and find a job in another field. Some students are expelled because they cannot make the grades, or attendance, or fall behind on payments.
But students who are motivated can easily make it through, get a license and find a job. CAL CBC is dedicated to helping all of our students reach this goal. We refuse to allow a single student to not reach their full potential.
The Department of Education has established minimum standards for graduation, license and job-placement rates. In our first three years, California College of Barbering and Cosmetology exceeded all these standards.
CAL CBC had 192 students who were scheduled to graduate in 2020
This was a very difficult year because of the pandemic and the need to do a substantial amount of our teaching online. Our numbers were significantly lower than in previous years. Of the 192 starting students, 117 graduated. Testing was way down, as the state testing center was closed for months at a time. Nevertheless, 77 took the exam of which 58 passed and 43 students were able to find jobs in the Beauty Services field. (In 2020 and 21, job availability was limited due to Covid 19. In addition, some may have gone to work in other fields, but we only track Beauty Services. Also, for the time being, the Government does not recognize receptionist jobs in salons, despite the fact that this is a standard entry route into the field.)
