Work Practicum

Students may participate in 60 hours of Work Practicum, during which they will practice skills learned in various salons in the community.  If a student is already an apprentice and working in a salon, she/he will complete a work practicum project worth 20 hours and will be credited with an additional 40 hours in the industry.

MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.


In order to receive credit for Level 1 In-School Apprenticeship Training, students must:

  • register as an apprentice upon being enrolled at MITT;
  • successfully complete this program with a minimum average of 70% in both theory and practical;
  • pass the Manitoba Apprenticeship Practical Exam (administered at MITT);
  • attain a minimum of 100 hours in employed hairstyling experience; and
  • gain employment in a salon within 2 years of graduating.

Hairstylists must register as an apprentice to work in Manitoba. When registering as an apprentice, enrolment in or completion of technical training is required. A Registered Apprenticeship Agreement OR a Certificate of Qualification as well as an Authorization to Practice is also needed to work as a hairstylist.

In addition to a Red Seal endorsed certification-theory examination, a practical examination is required for this trade
