Become a PGC Approved Educator

The Professional Grooming Credential program is designed to assist the Professional Grooming Industry by offering peer-reviewed and PGC approved Education listings. The program will recognize CEU’s for all verified participants of PGC Approved Education sessions. 


Educators may submit their content - seminars (live and virtual), videos, books, articles, workshops, etc. for PGC Approval. The content is independently reviewed, measured, and scored for relevance to the PGC Standards of Care and Knowledge. Once approved, the content is available to be utilized for CEU’s and pre-exam opportunities. 1 actual course hour = 1 CEU earned. Courses may be offered in variable formats and Candidates will receive CEU’s equivalent to the specific session they attend.
