in writing on forms prescribed by the Department, has paid the required fees, and:
a. Is at least 16 years of age; and
b. Has a certificate of graduation from a school providing secondary education, or
the recognized equivalent of such a certificate, or persons who are beyond the age
of compulsory school attendance; and
c. Has graduated from a school of barbering or school of cosmetology approved by the
Department, having completed a total of 1500 hours in the study of barbering extending

testing service to determine fitness to receive a license as a barber; and
