The Central California Women’s Facility (CCWF) welcomed the State Board Examiners on May 19, who tested seven inmates in the Cosmetology Vocational Program.

These seven students have proven themselves to have the ambition and motivation to accomplish their goals by completing the required 1,600 hours of training, consisting of hair care services and procedures, skin care services, nail care services and disinfection sanitation, according to officials.

On June 1, 2015, the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology confirmed the students passed the Cosmetology Examination and earned their licenses.

E. Lumbsden, Vocational Instructor said, “This great accomplishment will provide an opportunity of a lifetime upon their release, I’m so happy for them.”

Warden Deborah K. Johnson also congratulated the women.

“These skills obtained at CCWF will provide employment once paroled,” she said. “I am very proud of their hard work and success in completing their Board exam.”
