Benefits to the
Apprenticeship Program

What are the benefits of an apprentice program?

It’s more affordable! A shorter program means less tuition
It provides hands-on experience! You’ll get real-world training learning real-world lessons from real-world situations in a real-world shop!
It builds long-term relationships. The mentors you work with in the post-grad setting can help you throughout your career and can even inspire you to give back to others later in your career!
It looks good to future employers. Those who hope to hire solidly-trained employees know that having worked in a real haircutting environment increases the likelihood that an applicant has enhanced their school training.
