paying the required fee and giving evidence, as the Department may prescribe,
of completing not
less than 10 hours of continuing education for a nail technician

Department upon recommendation of the Barber, Cosmetology, Esthetics, Hair Braiding, and
Nail Technology Board relating to the practice of nail technology,
including, but not limited to, review of sanitary procedures, review of
