The current Barbers’ Law requires 1500 hours of training and instruction in a Licensed Barber College. Training is given to students during their enrollment on a clock hour basis. Based on the maximum amount of clock hours one can earn during any one week, 38 hours, the 1500 hours of instruction will take approximately 10 months to complete.
Part time classes would increase the number of months of training necessary to accumulate 1500 hours.

Applicants must be sixteen and one-half (16 1/2) years of age or older.
