What does SBH30416 Certificate III in Hairdressing involve?
The Certificate III in Hairdressing involves theory and practical work which will develop your skills in hairdressing services and in working as a team within a hairdressing environment. Such skills may include communicating in the workplace, consulting with clients, selling products and services, and designing and applying a broad range of technical hairdressing services on clients.
After finishing the Certificate III in Hairdressing qualification, you will be a fully qualified hairdresser with a range of well-developed skills.
Marjorie Milner College recommends that as part of your course, you invite your family and friends to practice on. A small fee will be charged to cover the cost of products and services. If you can’t find models, MMC will attempt to source clients for practical sessions.
