State Authorization

The barbering program at Pitt Community College meets the educational requirements to prepare students for the apprentice barber licensing exam required by the North Carolina Board of Barber Examiners, the certifying agency that awards NC barber licenses. This training requires 1528 hours of training in addition to successful completion of a variety of practical skills as per the NC Board of Barbers approved curriculum. After successful completion of the PCC program, students must make application to the NC Board of Barbers and schedule a licensing exam.  Students successfully passing the NC Apprentice Barber exam can also take the Registered Barber exam with the NC Board of Barbers after successfully completing a 12-month apprenticeship in North Carolina. Students wishing to practice as a barber in other states should contact the agency or board that oversees barber licenses in that state for their requirements. It is possible that hours accumulated in the Pitt Community College program may transfer as all or part of that specific state’s barber license requirements. Learn more.
