Hello and welcome to SalonGeek.

I see you are based in Texas in the States. The founder of Salon Geek is an American now living in the UK so this site is based in the UK. Therefore, many of the members are UK or Europe based and a lot of geeks post on the basis of assuming they’re living in the UK.
We do have a lot of Stateside, African and Aussie geeks etc. too but if you’re not living in the UK and your query is about training, qualifications or setting up a business, it’s useful to mention where on the planet you’re living when posting a question otherwise, you might get advice that’s not relevant to your circumstances. :)

In the UK for instance, there are no State Boards but there are local councils who provide a wide variety of services to the area including education, public libraries, rubbish collections, sports facilities etc. They also make local laws and are responsible for ensuring minimum standards of health and hygiene for particular treatments carried out within their area. This means that someone living and working in Glasgow, Scotland might have to abide by different rules to someone living and working in Manchester, England.

I don’t have any specific advice for you but maybe start by contacting your local State Board?
