Refresher & Cluster Training

DURATION: Needs dependant
COST: $250 – $3500 Depending on number days/units

If you have been absent from the industry for a time or are a senior hairdresser looking to update your skills, a refresher course may be for you. AAHB staff will work with you to determine which is most suited to your objectives, before tailoring the course to meet your own specifications.

All applicants for refresher courses are required to complete a questionnaire about your training needs so our professional staff can put together a tailored program that will meet your goals and outcomes.

Refresher programs may combine a mixture of in-class, existing workshops/lessons or on-floor depending on the program that is designed by our staff for you.

These industry-based courses are not nationally recognised training, however, should you wish to receive recognition for any units of competency you complete please speak with your course coordinator.

Barbering Pathway Programme

COURSE CODE: Barbering Pathway Programme
DURATION: 16 weeks
CAMPUS: AAHB Brisbane and Gold Coast
OTHER DETAILS: Barbering Pathway Programme – incorporating traditional barbering techniques

Barbering has really made a comeback in Australia and with the new Certificate III in Barbering – SHB30516 recently announced this pathway programme will supply successful graduates with the skills and confidence to jumpstart their careers in this growing industry.

AAHB has been overwhelmed with requests for pathways to a career in barbering, so after consultation with over 20 industry members we have packaged together a Barbering Pathway Programme – incorporating traditional barbering techniques.

The first offering of this course commenced in November 2013 and the enquiry number and enrolments has continued to grow as the barbering industry expands and the course has now evolved to include units covered under the new barbering qualification.

With units covering scissor/clipper over-comb techniques, taper cuts, flat tops, beard and moustache shaping and hot towel service with face and neck shaves (using straight edge razors) it is no wonder our graduates are highly sought after within the industry.

The intensive 16 week hands-on programme will provide you with the skills and confidence required to open the door of your new career.

This course is offered at AAHBs Brisbane and Gold Coast Campuses.

Upon successful completion of both the theory and practical elements of the course students will obtain a Statement of Attainment for the units successfully completed.
