Calling all experienced barbers and hairdressers

Are you ready to get qualified?

If you’ve got plenty of experience, but you don’t hold a New Zealand qualification, HITO can help. Our Qualification by Experience process means you can get your experience credited towards the New Zealand qualification in hairdressing or barbering. No attending classes or starting from scratch as an apprentice for you – just show us your experience and we’ll help you get qualified!

If you’ve got more than 3 years’ experience as a barber, or more than 5 years’ experience as a hairdresser, follow the link below to learn more. We’ve also got options for international applicants here on a work visa, so if that’s you, visit the HITO website to find out more.
