Barber & Cosmetology Training

Virtual Instructors Seminar

August 9 - 10, 2020


As Nashville embraces the new realities stemming from COVID-19, Tennessee State University’s Office of Continuing Education (OCE) recognizes that your safety and well-being is of most importance.  We have made the decision to transition the 2020 Barber and Cosmetology Seminar, “Leading for Success: Managing Change in Challenging Settings,” scheduled for August 9 - 10, 2020, into a Virtual Event. 

While we cannot replicate an in-person event, we are planning an awesome virtual experience with top-notch education sessions, exciting and engaging keynote speakers, and robust opportunities to network and collaborate.  Every member of the OCE staff is working hard to build an unforgettable and unique virtual experience for you.  We will not let you down!

Registration is now open for “Leading for Success: Managing Change in Challenging Settings.”  Approved by the Tennessee Barber Board and the Tennessee State Board of Cosmetology, this two-day virtual event featuring keynote speakers and industry experts will provide you with the tools, information, and motivation to face new challenges in your classrooms.  The cost is $150 prior to August 5 or $200 through the morning of August 9.  Upon receiving your registration payment and as we get closer to the event date, you will receive information that includes instructions for accessing the event via Zoom link.

Thank you for your understanding.  If you have any questions, please contact us at  We look forward to seeing virtually on August 9, 2020.
