The curriculum entailed in a barbering course will consist of fifteen hundred (1500) clock hours of technical instruction and practical operations covering basic concepts of every aspect of Barbering.
Technical instruction specifies in demonstrations, lecture, classroom participation, or examination instructions. Practical instruction is physical performance by the student of a complete service on a mannequin or human.
Students are graded by percentages on all written tests, and practical operations.
The method used to teach each course consists of written tests to find the level of which each student is learning and practical tests are given to evaluate each student’s skills. Instructors will periodically give demonstration classes where they show students how to complete a certain task then the instructors step back and allow the students to repeat the operation. Students are critiqued for every operation they complete and are expected to complete a minimum of ten operations per day. Practice on an actual person helps the students develop comfortability with working in an actual salon so clients are distributed evenly amongst the students during practical training. At the beginning of the barbering course students enter as freshmen, where they accumulate 100 hours in a freshman classroom gaining the knowledge to advance to the clinic floor as senior students. Once all freshman classes have been taken, a review of all materials covered is given following a freshman exit exam. Once students demonstrate the preparedness with a passing score, they are advanced to the clinic floor as senior students. Theory is given every morning at 8:30am to 9:30am on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. On Fridays students are tested on the subjects covered in Theory for that week. Theory is for freshman and seniors. Senior students receive classes of the same subjects as the freshman students except in a more in depth approach with a floor instructor. Senior students are expected to finish specific assignments on mannequins, other students, and the public.
