Barber Teacher Course Outline


The professional course for the Barber-Teacher requires the satisfactory completion of 1000 hours of training. The course is designed to train the student in the basic manipulative skills, safety judgments, proper work habits, business skills, and desirable attitudes necessary to obtain licensure and for competency in job entry-level positions in Barber Teaching.  


The barber-teacher program uses Milady’s Master Educator book series. Milady’s CD-rom and Milady’s Online Delmar Learning Center is used to assist students with chapter learning and testing. A comprehensive library of references, books, texts, and web-based materials are available to support the program of study and supplement the program of study. Students should avail themselves of the opportunity to use these extensive materials.

Instructional Methods Used: 

The clock hour education is provided through a sequential set of learning steps which address specific tasks necessary for state board preparation, graduation, and job entry level skills. Clinic equipment, implements, and products are comparable to those used in the industry. Each student will receive instruction that relates to the performance of useful, creative, and productive career oriented activities. The course is presented through comprehensive lesson plans which reflect effective educational methods. Subjects are presented by means of interactive lecture, demonstration, cooperative learning, labs, student salon activities, and student participation. Audio-visual aids, guest speakers, projects, activities, and other related learning methods may be used in the course.


Upon completion of the course requirements, the determined graduate will be able to:

  1.     Project a positive attitude and a sense of personal integrity and self confidence.
  2.     Project professionalism, visual poise, and proper grooming.
  3.     Communicate effectively and interact appropriately with colleagues, supervisors, and clients.

The barber-teacher course will provide students with the information needed to pass the state licensure exam as well as the most contemporary techniques to prepare them for teaching in barber schools, barber school management, and ensure success on the job.
