FAQ

Here is a collection of the most common questions and answers, do not hesitate to contact us if you can not find the answer to your question right here:

 

live_help

Do I need a license to be a barber?

spellcheck

There is no Barber Licensing in Canada. You can work without a license in any establishment which does not provide chemical treatments(ie: colouring, perms, etc). Although there is no certification for Barbers, we have used our 100 years of experience to create courses which will help you become a Barber.

live_help

Do you provide these courses in other cities?

spellcheck

Our newly modified course schedule was created in consideration of our out-of-town students.

live_help

Do I get a certificate?

spellcheck

Yes, students who complete a course do receive a certificate.

live_help

Can I get a job if I complete a course?

spellcheck

We do use the courses as a recruiting tool. Our company is in constant expansion and we do require new barbers but we do not guarantee employment. Ask your instructors for details about the possibilities of pursuing a career with us.

live_help

How much experience do I need?

spellcheck

While the Upgrading Technical Skills course does require previous experience, every one can take the Basic Barber Cut course. That course is specially designed for people with little or no experience.

live_help

What education do I need?

spellcheck

The only requirement is to be able to speak and read English fluently.

live_help

What equipment do I need to bring or buy?

spellcheck

We provide all the equipment, in fact we discourage students from buying tools before the course as they will learn about equipment through out the course.

live_help

When is the next course?

spellcheck

As soon as a course is full or has reached the closing registration date we publish the schedule for the next course, to keep informed click here to join our mailing list.

live_help

How many students do you take per class?

spellcheck

The Basic Barber Cut course can be up to 10 students per class but we prefer to keep the numbers smaller and generally we add another course to reduce the number of students. As for the Upgrading Technical Skills course we try to keep the maximum number under 8. Most classes have 2 instructors and sometimes 3, we strive for students to get the proper attention.

live_help

How long does it take to become a barber?

spellcheck

While taking these courses will help you in starting your career, completing them will not make you a Master Barber. Depending on personal aptitude it takes 3 to 5 years to reach the Master Barber level, practice makes perfect.
