After successfully graduating from Image Maker, you will then be required to take the TN State Board of Cosmetology Licensing Exam. This exam is two parts and each part is given on a separate day. The first part is the Theory part of the exam, this is the written exam. The written exam must be passed before you are allowed to proceed to the second part. The second part is the Practical Exam (hands-on demonstrations of your skills). Each part of the exam is $70. Therefore, it should cost $140 to take both parts of your State Board exam, provided you don't have to take it twice. SO STUDY and don't be nervous! You know this stuff!
The Testing Center that will administer your State Board Exam is PSI.
