Hairstyling Pre-Employment Program
The pre-employment program is a 500 hour program designed for those that wish to move from their current career to hairstyling by attending school in the evening. The program is designed so that a person can keep their daytime job while learning hairstyling. Training in the pre-employment program is equivalent to the first period technical training portion of the regular apprenticeship program. The program covers Theory and Practical sessions in the study of:
-Apprenticeship Industry Training
-Women’s and Men’s Design Haircutting
-Hairstyling Wet and Dry
-Long Hair Styling/Upstyles
-Texture Services/ Basic and Design
-Hair Coloring/ Basic and Design
Program: Monday-Friday from 4:30 to 8:30 pm for a period of six months. Upon completion of the training in school, an apprenticeship in the salon of 3,000 hours is mandatory. The total length with practical in the salon is 3,500 hours.
