Barbering Curriculum Schedule
The barbering curriculum is set up for 1500 hours of instruction. It takes place through a combination of theory classes, practical mannequin work, and actual hands on clientele practice.

Course Objective:
To develop in our students the highest possible degree of professional, social, and technical competence. Through our structured curriculum, the school supplies the principles and practices of barbering from basic techniques to more advanced, continually focusing on skills that will make the student more marketable upon graduation.

Instructional Methods:
The Barber Academy Barbering Program uses the Milady method of training, which enables the school to supply the students and instructors with extensive educational materials.

The barbering curriculum has 2 Phases of Training. Starting with Phase 1, students gain basic skills to more advanced skills as they proceed through the course. The course also includes preparation for salon/barber shop entry through a segment of salon/barber shop business, developing resumes and interviewing skills. Students are also trained and prepared in Mock State Board licensing applications and evaluations.

Instructors prepare and follow lesson plans and the curriculum is delivered with a combination of theory lectures and hands-on practice using mannequins & actual clientele. The educational system uses a highly visual step-by-step video, DVD and text support system that all correlate together. As lectures and demonstrations are given, students are able to follow along step-by-step with their textbooks.

The educational system also contains many assessment techniques which enable the educator and learner to assess progress before and after hands-on applications are applied. Textbooks are set up with many classroom activities that re-enforce the lessons being taught.
