This course will introduce you to concepts, terms, and equipment that are used to service beauty, barber, & grooming scissors and clipper blades. Course consists of 65+ lectures and includes printable student handouts and over 6 hours of video.
The topics presented in this online course are what we cover with our students during the first day of face-to-face training. It usually takes 6-8 hours to go over this material with our students. Think about that for a minute. People pay $250-$500 plus hotel and travel expenses to learn this information. You can gain this knowledge for a fraction of that cost from the comfort of your own home and learn it at your own pace. That is a huge value at a significant savings.
