(B) " Provider" means a nonprofit professional association, college or university, career technical school, postsecondary proprietary school of cosmetology licensed by the board, manufacturer of supplies or equipment used in the practice of cosmetology, the state board, an agent of the board, or any individual or entity that can present to the board sufficient proof of knowledge or expertise in the course curriculum being offered.
