Barber program launched at EWC


TORRINGTON – Eastern Wyoming College is currently seeking students for a new barbering technician program planned to begin during the Fall 2017 semester.
The program received final approval following an inspection by the State Board of Barbers in early April.
The Barbering Technician certificate program includes 1000 hours of barbering course work as required by Wyoming law. It combines theory classes, practical work and hands-on clientele practice.
Completion of this program prepares the students for national testing in barbering technology. This is a barbering program with no chemicals.
The list of program courses includes: General Science of Barbering, Barbering Hair Fundamentals I, Barbering Hair Fundamentals II, Clinical Applications I, Barbering Shop Management/Business Methods, and Clinical Applications II.
This is a thirty credit hour certificate program.
“I am very excited to welcome the first barbering students to EWC this fall,” said Christine Chesser, Department Head for Cosmetology and instructor. “The EWC Cosmetology Department is enthusiastic about moving into our new space in the CTEC building and the future of all of our programs.”
Applications are now being accepted for the first class of barbering students which will begin in October 2017. Interested students may contact Chesser at (307) 532.8363 or Barbering Instructor Amanda Asmus at
