SunFocus is looking for additional testing centers to better serve the Ohio tanning facilities.  By being a testing center your staff does not have to travel to another location to take the exam.  

Testing center duties are quite simple:

  • They must be available a reasonable number of hours a week for students make appointments to test.
  • They must verify a ID before testing.
  • They must be present while the student completes the online test on their phone or other device.

If you might be interested please download the application at the link below and email to sunfocus.training@gmail.com when complete.
