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 CEUs for all verified participants of PGC Approved Education sessions.


Educators may submit their content such as 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 can be utilized for CEUs (1-course hour is equal to 1 CEU) and pre-exam opportunities. Courses may be offered in various formats and Candidates will receive CEUs equivalent to the specific session they attend. PGC Approved Education must be current and on the published list to qualify for professional trade CEUs.
