The Barber Board of Examiners

The Barber Board of Examiners is chosen from our membership. We select a list of five names. The list is sent to the Governor and he then appoints one of the nominees to the board. Each potential board member must be a registered barber who has been practicing the profession for at least five years prior to nomination. They serve three year terms, with one term expiring on December 31st of each year.

Century Code section 14-01-01-01 states that the board of barber examiners was organized in North Dakota in 1901 to provide supervision of the practice of barbering to protect the public health, welfare, and safety. It is responsible for the protection of the public and the barbering profession from unfair and uneconomic practices.

All barber shops, schools or colleges where barber service is rendered is open to inspection at all times during business hours, to any member of the board or to any member of the state department of health. Every new shop must be examined by the board, and after that initial inspection, will be examined once each year.

Each barber applicant must have completed 1500 hours of instruction at a school approved by the board and passed an examination before receiving a master license, attaining registered barber status.

The Fee Schedules as of 2011 are as follows:

Master examination
Yearly Master Barber license
Yearly shop license
