Barbering - Curriculum
The Barbering curriculum is designed to provide competency-based knowledge, scientific/artistic principles, and hands-on fundamentals associated with the barber industry. The curriculum also provides a simulated environment that enables students to develop manipulative skills.
Course work includes instruction in all phases of professional barbering, hair design, chemical processes, skin care, nail care, multicultural practices, business/computer principles, product knowledge, and other selected topics.
Graduates should qualify to sit for the State Board of Examiners. Upon successfully passing the State Board exam, graduates will be issued a license. Employment is available in barbershops and related businesses.
The Barbering program is approved by the North Carolina Barbering Board.
Some programs at Edgecombe Community College lead to a license and/or certification in North Carolina. Beginning July 1, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education regulations require disclosures for all programs leading to a license or certification. Disclosures will be provided for all states and will indicate whether the program meets licensure requirements, does not meet licensure requirements or has not yet been determined for each state.
