Our Apprenticeship programs offer students the opportunity to learn theory and practical procedures during the first fifty percent of their desired program and the last fifty percent on the job in a real salon, barbershop or spa setting. As an apprentice, you’ll train under the direct supervision of a licensed instructor and while in apprentice a licensed Cosmetologist, Esthetician, Nail Tech or Master Barber with at least 10 years experience. Apprenticeships can be an excellent opportunity and alternative to traditional cosmetology school. Once the student has completed the first fifty percent of the program the student will sit for the Tennessee Theory examination and upon completion of apprentice hours (last fifty percent) the student will sit for Tennessee Practical Examination.
