Eastern Wyoming College is pleased to announce a new barbering technician program which will be open for enrollment this fall semester (2017). The program received final approval following an inspection by the State Board of Barbers earlier this week.

The Barbering Technician certificate program includes 1000 hours of barbering course work as required by Wyoming law.  It combines theory classes, practical work and hands-on clientele practice.  Completion of this program prepares the students for national testing in barbering technology.  This is a barbering program with no chemicals.

The following is a list of the courses in which students will enroll:  General Science of Barbering, Barbering Hair Fundamentals I, Barbering Hair Fundamentals II, Clinical Applications I, Barbering Shop Management/Business Methods, and Clinical Applications II.  This is a thirty credit hour certificate program.

“I am very excited to welcome the first barbering students to EWC this fall.  The EWC Cosmetology Department is enthusiastic about moving into our new space in the CTEC building and the future of all of our programs,” shared Christine Chesser, Department Head for Cosmetology, Instructor.

Applications are now being accepted for the first class of barbering students which will begin in October, 2017.  Students interested in the Barbering Technician program should contact Chesser at 307.532.8363 or Barbering Instructor Amanda Asmus at 307.532.8362.
