    (225 ILCS 410/1-13 new)
    Sec. 1-13. Liability; domestic violence and sexual
assault. A person licensed under this Act who completes
domestic violence and sexual assault awareness education as a

    (Section scheduled to be repealed on January 1, 2026)
    Sec. 3-7. Licensure; renewal; continuing education. The
holder of a license issued under this Article III may renew
that license during the month preceding the expiration date
thereof by paying the required fee, giving such evidence as the
Department may prescribe of completing not less than 14 hours
of continuing education for a cosmetologist, and 24 hours of
continuing education for a cosmetology teacher or cosmetology
clinic teacher, within the 2 years prior to renewal. The
training shall be in subjects approved by the Department as
prescribed by rule upon recommendation of the Board and may
include online instruction.
    For the initial renewal of a cosmetologist's license which
requires continuing education, as prescribed by rule, one hour
of the continuing education shall include domestic violence and
sexual assault awareness education as prescribed by rule of the
Department. For every subsequent renewal of a cosmetologist's

violence and sexual assault awareness continuing education
course shall be provided by a continuing education provider

sexual assault awareness course from a domestic violence and
sexual assault awareness organization shall satisfy this
requirement.
    The Department may prescribe rules regarding the
requirements for domestic violence and sexual assault
awareness continuing education courses and teachers.
    The Department shall establish by rule a means for the
verification of completion of the continuing education
required by this Section. This verification may be accomplished
through audits of records maintained by registrants, by
requiring the filing of continuing education certificates with
the Department, or by other means established by the
Department.
    The Department, in its discretion, may waive enforcement of
the continuing education requirement in this Section,
including the domestic violence and sexual assault awareness
education requirement, and shall adopt rules defining the
standards and criteria for that waiver under the following
circumstances:
        (a) the licensee resides in a locality where it is
    demonstrated that the absence of opportunities for such
    education would interfere with the ability of the licensee
    to provide service to the public;
        (b) that to comply with the continuing education
    requirements would cause a substantial financial hardship
    on the licensee;
        (c) that the licensee is serving in the United States
    Armed Forces; or
        (d) that the licensee is incapacitated due to illness.
