Barber - Apprentice License Application

Terms of Training:

Select one option:

APPRENTICE BARBER: The term "Apprentice" applies to a person who is learning the trade under the direction and supervision of a licensed Master Barber.
APPRENTICE LIMITED BARBER STYLIST: Barber Stylist apprentice shall engage in learning only the limited practice of Barber Styling for a period of eighteen (18) months full-time employment, minimum thirty (30) hours per week to be eligible to take the State Board Barber Stylist Licensing examination. Applicants for Barbering Stylist Examination must be at least sixteen (16) years of age and have a 9th grade education or equivalent.

Apprentices are licensees who are at least 16 years old and employed in a licensed barber shop for the purpose of being taught barbering.

An apprentice may assist the master barber starting or completing an operation, whereupon the usual fees may be charged. Charges may not be made for operations performed completely by an apprentice; however, this may not be interpreted to permit an apprentice to perform completely any operation without complete and constant supervision of the designated master barber licensee.

Apprentices are not charged for training and do not rent booths.

By applying for an apprentice license you will forfeit any prior student hours, or credit for endorsement from another state.

Shop owners receiving tuition fees from any apprentice shall be classified as a school and will be subject to all the provisions enforced by the Maryland Higher Education Commission.

Note: This is not a temporary license or a means of working while awaiting licensure or examination with other credentials.
