CURRENT PRIORITY ISSUES:
Bill No. - A10457 - Support legislation that would amend the general business law to mandate cosmetologists & barbers to complete 36 hours of continuing education (4 of which would be dedicated to domestic abuse awareness) during each 4-year license renewal period. This bill is still undergoing edits as to the required number of hours per renewal period, details of what types of continuing education would be eligible for credit and who/what entities would be authorized to deliver continuing education. For more information click on the Bill No. above. We would love your feedback! Please contact us with questions and/or comments.
Bill No. - A6578 - Support legislation that would create Shampoo Assistant Certificate. Under current NYS licensing rules, one must be fully licensed in order to just perform shampoo services in a salon, spa or barbershop. This bill would allow an applicant who has completed a minimum of 500 hours of the required 1000 hoursin an approved cosmetology course curriculum, in a duly licensed school, the opportunity to apply for such certificate. Full details, policies & restrictions are provided by clicking on the link to view the Bill. We would love your feedback on this as well. Please contact us with questions and/or comments.
