We know you’ve got to have more than a piece of paper to prove you’re a real barber BUT sometimes having that piece of paper can be a game-changer.
Holding a Level 4 New Zealand qualification:
- clearly shows New Zealand employers what skills you have
- gives you a qualification that is respected across the world
- allows you train apprentices and help others get qualified
- opens up employment opportunities for your future.
HITO, New Zealand’s Hair and Beauty Industry Training Organisation, offer a Qualification by Experience programme to help experienced barbers (and hairdressers) credit their work experience towards the New Zealand qualification in barbering.
If you’ve got more than 3 years’ experience as a barber and want to get qualified, read more about what’s involved.
