Study Options for Barbering at Demi International
Demi International offers the SHB30516 Certificate III in Barbering. This entry-level qualification teaches you how to become a barber. The Certificate III in Barbering is the minimum requirement for a barbering qualification in Australia. When you start your studies in barbering you will also learn the basic skills of all hairdressing, once these modules have been completed you will move on to specializing in specific barbering techniques. Demi International has a purpose-built salon at each campus. These fully functional salons are open to the public for barbering services, therefore providing great, hands-on training experience for those in the course. It also means you have the option to become qualified in 18 months rather than 3 years as an apprentice. Let’s look at the study options:
As a full-time student, you will attend classes two days a week over 60 weeks. You will have plenty of practical training and experience working on a variety of paying customers in the Barbering Academy’s fully functioning salon under the supervision of your experienced and qualified trainers. This allows you to become a qualified hairdresser in 18 months.
As an apprentice, you will be employed in a salon with a qualified barber on site. You will attend the Barber Academy up to 1 day a week (this is negotiated with your employer) and will complete the majority of your training and assessments both in your workplace and online. A full-time apprenticeship will take you 3 years to complete full-time and 6 years to complete part-time.
You can begin your traineeship in the Cert III in Barbering while still at school. You would be expected to complete a total of 7.5 hours a week working in a salon under the supervision of a qualified hairdresser. This average’s to about 30 hours over 3 months. You may be required to also attend the Hair Academy 1 day a week. A school-based traineeship takes 6 years while at school. The time reduces once you leave school and can take on a full-time or part-time apprenticeship.
