Such person shall file with the department such certificates and a statement on blanks furnished by the department, subscribed to by the applicant, which shall set forth such person’s name, age, place of birth, residence, academic and professional training with such other information as the department requires, and such person shall thereupon receive from the department a license to practice electrology. Such license shall include a statement that the person named therein is qualified to practice electrology. Such license shall also contain a statement defining the practice of electrology. The department shall establish a passing score for examinations with the consent of the board. No license shall be issued under this section to any applicant against whom professional disciplinary action is pending or who is the subject of an unresolved complaint in this or any other state or territory.
