Barber Exam Prep

How do I prepare for the Barbering Exam?

If you have worked at least 2,175 hours and 18 months as a Barber in Canada or abroad,

then you are eligible to apply for the Qualification Program through The Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT).


Our Barber Exam Prep Course prepares you to challenge the Alberta Journeyperson Barber exams.   




How much does it cost?

$799 plus GST. You will receive your 6-month online subscription, a study guide to write in, and a male bearded mannequin with a table mannequin stand.


How do I know if I qualify?

Easy, go to this link provided by The Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Trade Board (AIT): Barber Trade Qualifier - Work Experience Preparation which is for experienced tradespeople seeking certification in an Alberta-designated trade.


In Alberta, the Barber Trade is a compulsory trade, meaning that a person who is doing this work must hold a valid credential. You can check your credentials here.


Workers in this (these) trade(s) who don’t hold that credential, may have been working in the trade long enough to have gained enough experience to be working at the level of a journeyperson and don’t need the supervision and training of an entry-level apprentice. These workers are eligible for the Trades Qualifier application and can challenge the trade.




Trades Qualifier - Work Experience Program - https://tradesecrets.alberta.ca/experiencedworkers/trades-qualifier-programs/trades-qualifier-work-experience-program/  this is for people who are already working at the level of a Journeyperson.


When and where is this course held?

This course is online so once you are registered you can start immediately, and with your 6-month subscription you can study any time of the day with 24-hour access, so there is no time taken away from your work commitments. You study at your own pace and on your own time!

Do I need to do anything before I register for the course?
