18 the scientific fundamentals for barbering: hygiene; bacteriology; histology of
19 the hair, skin, nails, muscles and nerves; structure of the head, face and
20 neck; elementary chemistry relating to sterilization and antiseptics; diseases
21 of the skin, hair, glands and nails; massaging and manipulating the muscles of
22 the upper body; hair cutting; shaving; and arranging, dressing, curling,
23 waving, straightening, coloring, bleaching and tinting of the hair; and

25 (900) hours and include in its course of instruction the scientific fundamen-
26 tals for barbering: hygiene; bacteriology; histology of the hair, skin, nails,

29 and nails; massaging and manipulating the muscles of the upper body; hair cut-
30 ting; shaving; and arranging and dressing of the hair.
31 For the purpose of this chapter, a recognized approved barber school or
32 college (hereinafter referred to as a college) shall be understood to be a
33 college that has met with the provisions of this chapter , and has a valid
34 unrevoked license issued by the board, to the effect that said college is as
35 approved by the state of Idaho board.
36 No college in the state shall advertise or use any signs or terms to indi-
37 cate that the college is approved, recognized, accredited, certified, or
38 licensed unless said college is licensed by the board. Every college shall
39 advertise as a college and make known to the public and customers that the
40 work is being done by students.
41 All instructors in an approved college must be licensed in the state of
42 Idaho as a barber instructor or a cosmetology instructor.
43 Every instructor in an approved Idaho licensed college shall devote his or
1 her entire time during class hours to that of instructing the students and

17 time basis in each school or college.
18 Every school or college approved licensed by the board shall deliver to
19 the board, a bond to the state of Idaho in the sum of twenty thousand dollars
20 ($20,000) in a form approved by the board, and provide a copy of the bond
21 annually together with the application for school license renewal. The bond
22 shall be executed by a corporate surety company duly authorized to do business
23 in this state, conditioned that such school or college shall continue to give
24 its courses of instruction, in accordance with the provision of this chapter,
25 until it has completed all such courses for which students have enrolled, and
26 conditioned that such school or college shall fully comply with all promises
27 or representations made to enrolled students as an inducement to such students
28 to enroll. Any student so enrolled who may be damaged by reason of the failure
29 of such school or college to comply with such conditions, shall have a right
30 of action in his or her own name, on such bonds, for such damage.
31 SECTION 2. That Section 54-521, Idaho Code, be, and the same is hereby
32 amended to read as follows:
33 54-521. BOARD OF BARBER EXAMINERS -- POWERS AND DUTIES -- DESIGNATION OF
34 PERSONS TO REPORT TO BOARD. There is hereby created, and established in the
35 department of self-governing agencies, the board of barber examiners. The
36 board may, by written agreement, authorize the bureau of occupational licenses
37 as agent to act in its interest (in this chapter referred to as the board) and
38 in addition to the powers herein elsewhere conferred, shall have the following
39 powers and it shall be the duty of the board:
40 (1) To conduct examinations to ascertain the qualifications and fitness
41 of applicants for licenses hereunder and to pass upon the qualifications of
42 all applicants for licenses.
43 (2) To conduct hearings and proceedings in accordance with the provisions
44 of chapter 52, title 67, Idaho Code, to revoke licenses issued under this
45 chapter and to revoke such licenses subject to the provisions of this chapter.
46 (3) To designate what schools of barbering within and without the state
47 are approved schools, and from time to time, to change such designations and
48 to keep public records thereof.
49 (4) To prescribe rules in accordance with the provisions of chapter 52,
50 title 67, Idaho Code, for a fair and wholly impartial method of examination of
51 applicants for licenses hereunder and, subject to the provisions of chapter
52 52, title 67, Idaho Code, for conducting hearings for the revocation of
53 licenses, defining the qualifications of an approved school of barbering and
1 for the administration of this chapter in general.
2 Excepting the regulation of schools under section 54-507, Idaho Code,
3 hereof, and the issuance of licenses under section 54-513, Idaho Code, none
4 of the powers and duties specified in subsections (1) to through (4) of this
5 section, shall be exercised by the said bureau except on the action of the
6 board of barber examiners. When vacancies occur on said board, the governor
7 shall appoint new members, but not more than a total of three (3) members,
8 each of whom shall be a registered barber, and shall have been a resident of,
9 and lawfully practicing barbering within the state of Idaho for a period of at
10 least five (5) years next before his appointment, and who is neither directly
11 nor indirectly in any way connected with or interested in the barber supply
12 business nor in any institution offering instruction in barbering. In appoint-
13 ing the members of such board the governor shall give consideration to the
14 recommendations received from the Idaho state barbers association all nomina-
15 tions. The board and all assistants shall be compensated as provided by sec-
16 tion 59-509(h), Idaho Code.
17 The regular term of office of a member of the board shall begin as of the
18 first Monday of July of the year in which he is appointed and shall continue
19 for three (3) years thereafter. A member appointed to fill a vacancy occa-
20 sioned otherwise than by expiration of a term shall serve the unexpired term
21 of his predecessor.
22 A vacancy in membership in the board shall occur, and be declared by the
23 governor, whenever the regular term of a member expires, or whenever a member
24 dies, resigns, or is found by the governor to be mentally or physically inca-
25 pable of acting, or to be neglecting or refusing to act, or to cease to have
26 the qualifications of a member, or to have acquired disqualifications of a
27 member, or to have been absent without reasonable cause from two (2) succes-
28 sive meetings of the board.
29 The board of barber examiners shall select from its members a chairman,
30 vice chairman, and secretary who shall serve at the pleasure of the board.
31 The action and report in writing of the board so designated shall be suf-
32 ficient authority upon which the bureau may act.
33 Whenever the board is satisfied that substantial justice has not been
34 done, either in examination or in revocation of a license or otherwise, it may
35 order a reexamination or rehearing of the matter.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
This legislation amends section 54-507, Idaho Code, to clarify
the requirements for barber colleges to allow consideration of
training obtained outside of Idaho. Amend section 54-521, Idaho
Code, to allow consideration of all nominations for appointment
to the Board, as the barber association is no longer active.
There is no fiscal impact on general or dedicated funds.
