First of all, Our course is 15 weeks full time, From our market research the longest course in Ireland except for this is only 10 weeks, and that’s part time.
Secondly, From our experience over the last 6 years of travelling internationally and teaching men’s hair. We have found that most beginner barbers have taken a course that is similar to what we see in Ireland, Part time and sometimes as low as 8 weeks. This generally leaves a student still unqualified and unable to earn money. This leaves a student in a position where they either have to invest in another course ( €3000 again) or to find an apprenticeship, which unfortunately doesn’t exist much anymore.
So at 15 weeks, FULL TIME at our hair academy. Our rate per day would actually be the same, except we are proposing a far higher standard of education, with enough time for the student to become comfortable as a barber and digest the information properly.
This is a career, not a course for your hobby, if you invest wisely from the start, you won’t need to buy twice.
