Barber Program

Launched in 2017, our NACCAS-accredited 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.

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.
