Stylist Article – June 2016
The California State Board of Barbering and Cosmetology will host a live Webcast at 10 a.m., June 15, 2016, to announce the newly developed national cosmetology examination.
Representatives from the National-Interstate Council of State Boards of Cosmetology (NIC will offer an overview of the practical examination and answer questions that have been submitted via email. Viewers will be instructed during the Webcast as to when and where to send their questions about the new exam.
The new cosmetology examination will go into effect in mid-September 2016. Prior to implementation, the Board will be making the necessary revisions to the Candidate Information Bulletin (CIB) and any other information related to the new exam. These items will be posted to the Board’s Web site as soon as they become available and schools will be notified of the exact implementation date.
Please check the Board’s Web site at www.barbercosmo.ca.gov for further information and the link for the Web cast. While information about the event will be available approximately one week prior to the broadcast, the link will not be accessible until the actual Web cast is scheduled to begin.
So pull up a chair, turn on your computer and join us. The Board looks forward to your participation.
