REGISTERING FOR EXAMS
How do I register to take the exams?
Once you have completed either an Apprentice, Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetic, Natural Hair Stylist or Manicure program, your Sponsor or Instructor will fill out a Written Exam Application for you. You are required to fill out part of this application and sign it. You are required to send a copy of your original transcript (and English translation if needed) of your transcript as proof of completing at least the 10th grade or the equivalent.
The Board office does NOT schedule either of your exams for you. Once you have been approved by the Board, you must contact PSI to schedule to take your exam. Instructors: after scheduling, you must contact PSI to receive your topics.
What if I need accommodations for a disability?
The Board and its proctors abide by the ADA requirements. You must provide documentation for this. If you need further assistance on this matter, please contact Yina (Yina.Ford@aboc.alabama.gov) 1-800-815-7453/1-334-242-1916.
