From Classroom to Barbershop: Seamlessly Transitioning to the Real World Post-Associated Barber College

Embarking on a professional barbering career after graduation is a significant milestone. The transition from the classroom to the barbershop can be a nerve-wracking experience. However, at Associated Barber College, we are committed to ensuring that this transition is as seamless as possible for our students.

Practical Skills

One of the hallmarks of our program is the emphasis on practical, hands-on training. Our students are not just taught in the classroom; they are given opportunities to work with real clients under the supervision of experienced instructors. This helps bridge the gap between theory and practice, ensuring our students are ready for the real-world demands of a barbershop.

Industry Connections

We leverage our strong industry connections to help our students find job placements after graduation. We have a strong network of alumni and partner barbershops, which we tap into to help our graduates find their footing in the industry.

Business Skills

Besides the technical skills, we also teach our students the business aspect of barbering. This includes customer service, communication skills, and basics of running a barbershop, which are essential for those who aspire to own their own businesses.

Preparation for Licensure

Our curriculum is designed to prepare students for the state barber licensing exams. We provide guidance and resources to ensure our students are well-prepared to meet these professional requirements.

Continuing Education and Mentorship

Even after graduation, we continue to support our students. Whether it’s through continuing education opportunities or mentorship from our faculty, we strive to ensure our students have the support they need as they transition into their professional careers.

Our goal at Associated Barber College is not just to impart skills but also to ensure our students are ready to take on the barbering world confidently. We believe in nurturing well-rounded professionals who can excel in the technical, business, and interpersonal aspects of barbering.

The transition from classroom to barbershop is not just about changing locations; it’s about stepping into a new role, embracing new responsibilities, and making an impact in people’s lives one haircut at a time. With the training, support, and opportunities provided by Associated Barber College, you can make this transition with confidence, ready to carve out your unique path in the barbering industry.
