50 Hours Barber Refresher Program
The 50 Hour Barber refresher program is intended primarily for licensed individuals wishing to enhance their skills such as Cosmetologists, Hairdressers, and Barber Apprentices who are ready to take the NY State Board Exam to become a Master barber. We want to make sure that every student is up to speed on classical haircutting, straight razor shaves, fades, tapers, scissor over comb techniques, modern hairstyles and be properly prepared to sit for and successfully pass New York State Barbering Licensing Examination. American Barber Institute will provide our students with abundance of clients so our students can get plenty of hands on training. Upon completion of the program our students will receive a 50 Hour Barber Refresher certificate; we will also provide job placement assistance to every graduate.
