What is Hairstyling Pre-Employment?

Hairstyling, in Alberta, is a licensed trade. There are a number of different ways to get your license. One of those ways is by entering into a Hairstyling Pre-Employment program.


The Delmar Hairstyling Pre-Employment program is a 500 hour program designed for the person who wants to keep their Monday to Friday job, or has child care commitments during the day, but wants to explore the career of hairstyling.
