"(A)(1) The holder of an individual license issued by the board biennially, on such date as may be designated by the board, shall renew his license and pay the renewal fee and furnish proof to the board that he has completed continuing education approved by the board. Of these licensees:
(a) all persons licensed by the board as cosmetologists, nail technicians, and estheticians must show satisfactory evidence of having successfully completed three hours of instruction in regulations, health, safety, and sanitation during the preceding licensing year; and
(b) all persons licensed by the board as instructors must show satisfactory evidence of having successfully completed six hours of instruction during the preceding licensing year, of which:

(3) A person only may obtain continuing education credit in regulation, health, safety, and sanitation from providers approved by the board. Teaching methodology hours may be taught by any professional and need not be taught by a provider approved by the board.
(4) Upon approval by the board and submission of an attendance form prescribed by the board, a person may obtain continuing education credit by attendance at trade show cosmetology-related instructional programs.
