The advanced barber program course is designed to better the barbering skills of individuals who are experienced barbers and cosmetologists. By experienced individuals, we mean individuals who have completed over 400 “in shop” hours either within the United States or internationally. If you’re wondering whether you’re eligible, know that the International Barber Institute considers each applicant on the basis of ability and general aptitude. Factors such as your desire, motivation, and attitude will also be considered before you are accepted as a student.
The 360-Hour Barber Training Course for Advanced Students takes approximately 15 weeks to complete through which the students spend their time engaging in theoretical as well as practical work. The goal is to establish thorough and complete knowledge and excellent professional habits. The program consists of demonstrations, lectures, examinations and practical application. The scheduling at the beginning of the program is primarily classroom work and is eventually followed by actual application of all the subjects on live models and mannequins, under the supervision of the instructor.
