TAFE SA want to make it easy for you to get your barbering qualification in a way that suits you and your career. Whether you already have experience, or are just looking to start your career, they have options for you. 

Study on campus 

If you like the idea of meeting your fellow students, learning from great lecturers and working with clients in a salon environment then you can choose to study at the Adelaide City campus and get your qualification in around 14 months. 


If you prefer to get real life salon experience and study one day per week then an apprenticeship might be the way to go. Being an apprentice lets you gain your qualification while working, meaning you can earn while you learn! 

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

For those who already have barbering skills and experience you might qualify for the RPL program. Using your skills and experience thus far you could remove the need to undertake certain training units to receive your qualification. RPL can save you time and allow you to reach your desired qualification sooner.
