NEW INFORMATION REGARDING THE WRITTEN AND PRACTICAL EXAMINATIONS

Effective September 1, 2012 the written and practical examination for all license types will be available in the Korean language. Therefore, candidates will not be allowed to use an interpreter or interpreter/model since the examination is available in the candidate's native language. The candidate must select "Korean" as "Exam Language Preference" on the Application for Examination or Application for Re-examination. Candidates who have already submitted their application requesting an interpreter and the native language is Korean, the interpreter will be denied and the Board of Barbering and Cosmetology (Board) will automatically request Korean as the language of preference when evaluating their application. Anyone scheduled for the examination who wants to change their language preference, may do so by calling PSI at least 2 full days prior to their scheduled date at 1-877-392-6422. However, for Korean language, you will not be able to make this change with PSI until on or after September 1st, 2012. If you contact them before this date, they will not be able to make the change.

Practical Examination

EFFECTIVE MARCH 1, 2012, MODELS WILL NO LONGER BE PERMITTED FOR THE COSMETOLOGY, MANICURIST, AND ESTHETICIAN PRACTICAL EXAMINATIONS. ALL SERVICES FOR THESE EXAMINATIONS WILL BE COMPLETED ON A MANNEQUIN HEAD AND/OR HAND INSTEAD OF MODELS. PLEASE REFER TO CIRCULAR LETTER #12/03 FOR MORE INFORMATION.
