(1100 hour)

The Barber Course is a 1100-hour course designed to train students to become licensed Barbers upon graduation. The Barber course is designed to train the student in the basic manipulative skills, safety judgements, proper work habits, business skills, and desirable attitude necessary to obtain licensure and for competency in job entry-level positions in Barber or a related career field.

Upon completion of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion, and will qualify to take a state board test to become licensed as a Barber. The state of Virginia currently does not require CEUS to maintain license. The license must be renewed every two years by paying the necessary fee. The schools works on clock hours and the total tuition is based on the cost of the course and not credit hours.
