  • Question:

    I went through the cosmetology program and I as well as many others were interested in getting licensed as a barber. What would it take to for COM to implement a barber program? Role: Student

    Response:

    Thank you for your interest in workforce programs at College of the Mainland.  Operating a Barber school is a very different program from Cosmetology. It would take extensive resources for the college to prepare to offer this training program, including obtaining a new license from the TDLR for a barber school, obtaining approval from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to offer this additional training program, developing the curriculum, obtaining appropriate space, finding funding for the additional program costs, and hiring licensed barber instructors.  This list is not exhaustive, but provides an insight to the depth of time and preparation that would be required to add this program to our campus offerings.  At this time, the College is not considering offering a Barber program.
