2023 Individual License renewals
License renewals can be submitted on time between July 1, 2023 12:00am and October 1, 2023 11:59pm. Licensees that are not exempt or inactive must complete 8 hours of CE per year. The Board offers Free CE for licensees. The Board does not require licensees to take paid courses and cautions licensees against CE course providers that advertise their classes as "mandatory."
Licensees can document CE hours as any education earned since the last renewal. Examples of acceptable CE hours would be: learning a new skill from another professional, watching educational videos or tutorials, taking correspondence or online courses, participating in a hands-on class. At least half the education completed must be in the cosmetic art licensure field . Please keep records of the time, date, location (or URL) and a brief description of the educational material so if the licensee is selected for an audit and receives an audit letter the records can be submitted in a timely manner.

The Board has received notifications of calls and visits to licensed shops by individuals impersonating Board inspectors. Reports have been made in counties throughout the state. Board inspectors always carry and present identification but do not collect payments of any kind.
