An applicant for a certificate of registration to operate a barber college shall file an application with the board in such form as the board may prescribe, accompanied by the fee required by this chapter. Upon receipt of the application, the board shall require the applicant, if an individual or, if the applicant is a firm, partnership, or corporation, a partner or officer thereof, to appear personally before the board and submit information, in such form as the board may by regulation prescribe, showing:

Prior to the issuance of the certificate, the board or its representative shall inspect the college and shall determine that it complies with this chapter and the regulations of the board. Before making such inspection, the board may require the applicant to furnish such evidence as is necessary to show compliance with any local laws governing the operation of barber colleges in the particular locality in which the college is to be located.
