Like many states, Kentucky does not have an official cosmetology instructor license; so you will need to go through their regular cosmetology licensure process. Once complete, you must hold your license for 1,000 training hours and pass instructor exams. You are not required to take continuing education courses to maintain your license. However, you are expected to renew your license every year during the month of July, by the last day of the month. The renewal fee is $20, and processed by the Kentucky Board of Cosmetology.
