VERMONT BARBER AND COSMETOLOGY RELATED PROFESSIONS
Due to the COVID-19 disease, the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have issued updated measures to be taken to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 disease. Professional Credential Services (PCS) has determined it is necessary to postpone the upcoming Practical and Theory Examinations in Vermont until further notice. All candidates will be placed in the 1st available date and notified via email once a new exam date has been determined. PCS feels it is necessary to protect the individual candidates and our staff at the testing facility. You should check your email account weekly for updates regarding the exams and admission notices.
Please feel free to contact PCS at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or concerns.
