4713-5-17 Licensed instructors on premises.

(A) During all school hours, a school of cosmetology shall have a licensed instructor on duty to teach courses on theory and practical application of all branches of cosmetology. There shall be a minimum of one instructor for each twenty-five students or part thereof in attendance. Should a licensed instructor, operating within the instructor to student ratio established by this rule, determine that a student requires additional training in a theory subject and the instructor can effectively oversee the student's theory activity with no impact on their ability to oversee clinic instruction for the remaining students, the student may clock theory hours under the direct supervision of the licensed instructor. Any time clinic or theory courses are conducted concurrently in separate areas of the facility that prevent direct supervision, at least two instructors must be present.

(B) Schools may count a state credentialed teacher in math, english and/or science as a board licensed instructor when they are teaching those areas of the cosmetology course outlines for which they are licensed/certified.
