Participants in the Introduction to Barbering Course are eligible to take the additional examinations to achieve the Level 2 Certificate in Barbering from VTCT. This is equivalent to a Level 4 NFQ award. Knights is an authorised training and certification centre for VTCT.
There are no prerequisites for taking our Introductory course. People of all ages and from all over the country with a wide variety of backgrounds have taken our course and gone on to work in barbershops. Several have even opened their own barbershops after the course.
Government grants are sometimes available to eligible people. Contact your local Employment Services office/Intreo Centre – the contact details of which are available from the Department of Social Protection’s website: www.welfare.ie
