Where can I get the infectious disease transmission training?

The health district requires that all Body Art Card holders receive infectious disease training, such as the Preventing Disease Transmission training offered by the American Red Cross. You must complete the training within 30 days of passing the health district exam. Visit the American Red Cross webpage for information on their course.


When do the cards expire?

Your card will be good for two years. If you are an apprentice, you must provide proof that you have completed at least six months of training in a licensed establishment, you must be 18, you must pass an exam with a minimum score of 70 percent, and provide a letter of employment to receive a permanent card.


How much are the cards?

The fee is $138 ($118 exam fee plus $20 card fee).  The renewal is $20. An additional $15 late fee will be applied to card renewals that have expired.
