Curriculum at Old Time Barber College goes beyond preparing students for the State  Barber Licensure Examination. Our instructors work with students to make sure they are well-versed in the latest techniques and hair styling trends. Student barbers are also provided a well-rounded education in matters associated with running a shop, and customer care techniques. Our OTBC graduates are prepared to become community leaders, and the lessons learned while attending one of the best  barber training schools in the nation, act as the foundation for success.           60 YEARS OF SUCCESS
