The following 18 states currently do not have licensure or regulations for the practice of Electrology: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, and Colorado, Georgia, Kentucky, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia and Wyoming.
Residents who plan to practice in one of the unlicensed states may opt to take the 350-hour electrology course. This course does not qualify for licensure in the state of CA and is not approved by the CA Board of Barbering and Cosmetology. California Residents are required to enroll in the 600-hour course.
The 350-hour HDL course is conducted through a combination of printed materials and review test given at the end of each chapter. You may begin your enrollment on any business day and progress at your own pace, however, you must complete the course within 1.5 times the length of the program. Once enrolled in the program, you may begin at any time. There can be up to a two week waiting period to start the practical portion of the program after the theoretical portion has been completed.
Practical training shall include the actual performance by the student of a complete service on another person and the time it takes to perform the operation. A start date for the practical portion will be arranged after the theory portion has been completed.
MBIE will utilize the California curriculum of study as its standard for instruction. Students are awarded a certificate of completion from MBIE.
