Barber schools licensed in Arizona are required by the Arizona State Board of Barbers to hold a $25,000 Barber School Bond for the entirety of their operations. This license bond, provided by Jet, is a financial guarantee to the Board and the public should the barber school’s actions negatively impact the public or the Board.
Jet’s bond application is set up to get you the Barber School Bond quickly and at an affordable rate.
You can pay as low as $250 for one year or $25 monthly for the $25,000 Barber School Bond. A soft credit check of the applicant is required to get an approved rate - don’t worry, it won’t affect your credit score! Check the chart below for pricing options for preferred credit.
The monthly payment option is exclusive to Jet! You won’t find it anywhere else. We believe in providing payment options that work for everyone.
The Arizona State Board of Barbers exists to protect the public from unprofessional barbering practices, which is done through the Board managing licensing, inspections, and surety bond filings. The Barber School Bond acts as a financial guarantee that barber schools will act in compliance with Arizona Revised Statutes Title 32, Chapter 3 and the Arizona Administrative Code, Title 4, Chapter 5. Failure to do so will result in disciplinary action from the Board, including a potential claim on the bond which would pay out to financially harmed individuals.
Jet’s application process can be completed in just a few minutes. Information such as the barber school’s name and address, your name, and your social security number for the soft credit check will be collected.
After a quick review Jet will send you an approved rate via email which will be available to purchase directly online. Upon payment completion, Jet files the bond to the board for you or sends it to the address specified in the application. You will receive a copy of the bond and a receipt.
Absolutely! After payment is collected, Jet completes the bond form and sends it to the Arizona State Board of Barbers. If you have other paperwork to file with the Board, you can choose to have the original bond sent to you to file. All paperwork must be sent to the following address:
Board of Barbers
1740 W. Adams, Suite 3011
Phoenix, Arizona 85007
With Jet you can cancel at any time. Keep in mind, however, that the bond must be in place for the duration the barber school is giving instruction.
To cancel, just send Jet a written request (email is fine) and we will request for cancellation with the Board of Barbers. The Board requires a 30-day notice, so once they are notified by Jet the bond will remain active for an additional 30 days. At that time, Jet will evaluate the bond to see if there is any unused premium on the bond with the 30 days calculated in. Any money remaining on the bond will be refunded after the 30-day cancellation period.
If you happen to be paying for the bond on a monthly basis, no refund will be available but the bond coverage and payments will end after the 30-day cancellation period.
By following the Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 32, Chapter 3, and regulations put in place by the Arizona Board of Barbers, barber schools and instructors can easily avoid disciplinary action against them. Failure to abide by laws can result in fines from the Board, civil fines, suspension or revocation of the license, a class 1 misdemeanor, and a possible bond claim from any aggrieved person(s).
Aside from the Board of Barbers, the attorney general, a county attorney, or any other person can file suit with the superior court in the county the barber school operates if they feel the school is in violation of Title 32, Chapter 3, of the Arizona Revised Statutes.
One main reason a bond claim would occur is if a student does not receive instruction for which they paid tuition, and the school does not refund that tuition. However, courts will generally give the barber school a chance to redeem themselves prior to pursuing a bond payout. It is in the barber school’s best interest to resolve discrepancies before a claim on the bond occurs.
Contact Jet immediately upon receiving court notification of an ordered bond claim payout. Jet then has 30 days to investigate the claim and may request documentation from you to help with the process.
If Jet determines the claim to be valid, payment will be made to the claimant up to the full $25,000 bond limit. Because the bond is like an extension of credit, and the school is liable for their actions, the barber school must pay Jet back in the amount of the claim payout. Failure to reimburse a claim will result in future difficulties obtaining a surety bond and licensing to be a barber school.
