What is Apprenticeship?

GEBBCA is an approved state-certified apprenticeship workforce development program for barbers and cosmetologists. All classes are taught by licensed credentialed instructors. The aspect that makes our program unique is that we give people an opportunity.  We have an open-door policy to all interested apprenticeship candidates and salon owners seeking approval to start satellite programs within their counties.
