Professional Standards Policies and Procedures
To help you achieve excellence in Barbering, we have established these guidelines to ensure fairness, understanding and positive work habits among our future professionals. To help prepare you for the workplace, Graham’s Barber College operates much like a professional salon environment. Late arrivals, absences and other interruptions in your training have a significant effect on your achievement- just as they would if you were an employee in a salon, day spa or other professional environment. By law, we must keep track of your training hours for licensure or certification. A future professional must have a 75% overall attendance average at the completion of their program. If this is not achieved the future professional must extend their contract to achieve this standard.
