Why should I Choose an OHSA-Member Private Career College? 

Not all Private Career Colleges are the same. Some may not have received their accreditation from the Ontario government, and so they fall short of providing students with thehigher standards set by the OHSA. Members of the OHSA must adhere to specific by-laws which promote excellent training, updated information on Government legislation and continued support to their instructors.

What is a Registered Private Career College?

These private career colleges offer a very efficient and direct route toward obtaining a Certificate of Qualification in the Hairstyling trade. Students are taught by qualified instructors who have the knowledge and experience needed to work with students in a learning environment. 

Who are the Staff and Instructors?

Our Instructors are fully licensed hairstylists who are trained to identify different learning styles and adapt or modify proven techniques to relate to the needs of the individual student. Oftentimes they are past graduates. 

 

Will I Work on Real People?

Private career colleges offering hairstyling courses are open to the public and offer services at reduced rates in order to attract clients for the students in the 1500-hour curriculum contains a large percentage of training on live models. Students in the 1500-hour hairstyling course receive in most cases far more hands-on experience than a student in a full apprenticeship program.
