» » Translated Cosmetology Fields of Practice Exams Coming Soon

The Oregon Health Licensing Office (HLO) is in the

process of soliciting a professional services contract

for the translation of the Cosmetology field of practice

examinations, i.e. barbering, hair design, nail technol-

ogy and esthetics, and the Oregon laws and rules

examination into Spanish and Vietnamese.

The HLO does not have an implementation date

at this time however, the goal of the HLO is to have

the translated examinations ready for administration

by January 1, 2018. The HLO will provide notice to all

schools, in writing, with the specific date the examina-

tions will be available in the translated languages.

In the interim, until the translated examinations

are available, the HLO does provide individuals for

whom English is a second language (ESL) with the op-

portunity to obtain additional time to complete their

examinations. Times for applicants to appear at the

HLO for additional time, and to allow the appropriate

amount of time to complete their examination(s) are

listed below.

• 12:00 pm - 1 field of practice and Oregon laws and

rules examination

• 10:00 am - 2 field of practice and Oregon laws

and rules examination

• 8:00 am - 3 fields of practice and Oregon laws and

rules examination

To accommodate individuals taking three fields

of practice and the Oregon Laws and Rules, with the

additional time, HLO will be able to administer those

examination, other than Tuesdays at 8:00 am.

If you have any questions, or need additional infor-

mation please contact me at 503-373-1816 or visit the
