Learn the craft and traditions of old school barbering, whilst catering for a modern, urban clientele with this course in Barbering.

This course is only available as an Australian Apprenticeship. You must have employment as an apprentice to enrol in this qualification.

In this course, you will have the opportunity to develop your sales and consultation skills, as well as specialist technical barbering skills including cutting hair using freehand clipper techniques, designing and maintaining beards and moustaches, and shaving heads and faces.

You’ll also learn how to provide men’s general grooming services, and identify and tread hair and scalp conditions, as well as how to create graduated and layered haircut structures and how to cut hair using over-comb techniques.

Throughout the course, you will also have the opportunity to learn and work as part of a team in a real-life hairdressing environment at one of TasTAFE’s professional, working hair salons. You’ll gain experience in developing and expanding your client base, and learn how to consult with clients, recommend products and services, and communicate as part of a salon team, as well as how to apply safe hygiene, health and work practices.

On successful completion of this course and your apprenticeship, you will be a qualified Barber.
