New Jerseyans seeking an alternate route to become a manicurist may soon be able to earn their license through an apprenticeship thanks to legislation sponsored by Senator Robert Singer and approved today by the Senate Commerce Committee.

Legislation sponsored by Sen. Robert Singer that would allow an individual to earn their manicurist license through an apprenticeship was approved today by the Senate Commerce Committee. (

“Formal education for any trade is important, but for many people, the cost of cosmetology school is just too high. In the case of manicurists, on-the-job training can be a sufficient substitute in lieu of more formal education,” said Singer (R-30). “My legislation will create a manicuring apprenticeship program, which will lower the monetary barrier to entry for anyone interested in learning about this field. This new, alternate route initiative will allow those who are ready and eager to work to get started as soon as possible.”

Singer’s bill, S-3233, provides the option for an individual to fulfill the requirements for licensure as a manicurist through the completion of an apprenticeship.

An applicant seeking a manicuring license through an apprenticeship is required to be at least 17 years of age and possess a high school diploma or a GED.
