New for 2017, our comprehensive Barber program is designed to train students in the theory and practical techniques of barbering. Students study all prerequisite topics necessary to become eligible to test for a Barber license in the state of Missouri and seek gainful employment in the field.
Our classes use a combination of teaching styles and techniques to maximize learning experiences. From textbook-based activities to multimedia projects, guest lectures to good old hands-on experience, every effort is made to stimulate growth in knowledge and skills for our students. Starting Barber class dates for 2017 are:
- Tuesday, June 6th
- Tuesday, August 29th
- Tuesday, October 24th
The barber program is 1000 clock hours, or 31 weeks to complete at 32.5 hours per week. Hours of training are Tuesday through Saturday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. After the first four weeks of training, students will be in class every day from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM, then working on the clinic floor from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Students are scheduled for one 30-minute lunch break every day.
All students enrolling with the August 29th Barber class are eligible for a $3,275 full-coverage scholarship award to reduce the total cost of tuition and supplies to $3,000. Space is limited for all classes. Trend Setters has several additional options to assist with the cost of the program.
