“The new site and online renewal system was built with a desire to provide convenient access to information,” said Sonja Minch, the Executive Director of the Kentucky Board of Barbering.
The site also provides a one-stop license renewal application for the more than 5,000 licensees in the state. Licensees may renew their annual license by providing their license identification number, date of birth and the last four digits of their Social Security number in a responsive design setting.
“We look forward to continuing to work with Kentucky Interactive LLC to improve our online experience and processes,” stated Minch.
The site was developed for the Kentucky Board of Barbering through their public-private partnership with Frankfort-based Kentucky Interactive, LLC.
