A.  No person shall practice or attempt to practice barbering without a certificate of registration as a registered barber issued by the board.

B.  Students in certified barber colleges may perform acts included in the practice of barbering but only as clinical training and only on persons who have consented thereto after they have been specifically advised in advance that the operator is not a registered barber but only a student in training.

C.  The board is authorized to adopt rules to allow a barber college to charge or accept directly or indirectly any money whatsoever for such clinical practice by the student or for materials used therein whether the money is considered payment for services or materials or as a gratuity.

D.  A person participating in the Barber Apprenticeship Program registered with the Apprenticeship Council of the Louisiana Workforce Commission may perform acts included in the practice of barbering if he holds an apprenticeship certificate issued by the board.  The board shall issue such an apprenticeship certificate to an applicant upon submission of an application accompanied by proof of his participation in such program and payment of the appropriate apprenticeship certificate fee.
