Champions Barbering Institute Announces Vocational Program For Training Barbers

Oregon’s sole career college dedicated to the art and business of barbering has launched its 10-month barbering program.

Champions Barbering Institute, Inc. (CBI), Oregon’s sole career college dedicated to the art and business of barbering, announced today that it has launched its 10-month barbering program. The institute aims to educate an elite level of skilled barbers, equipping them with the knowledge and techniques that will assure a prosperous future in the artful trade of barbering and business management. Enrollment opportunities are available, but limited beginning January 10, 2017.

CBI's Grand Opening Open House Sunday, Dec. 4th from 3-5 pm is an excellent opportunity for prospective students and industry leaders to explore CBI's offerings.

“Our process fosters a passion for the traditional barber,” said Jamaal Lane, co-founder of CBI. “And, we go even further. We groom each student not only into an outstanding professional and business-minded barber but also a respected and active leader in our communities. The barber shop is part of the community. The barber should ideally be a community figure. It’s amazing when it works out that way. That’s what we encourage in our students.”

“CBI is seeking students who will allow us to aid them in reaching and achieving their goal to become a highly skilled professional barber. The school enables students to create experiences that have meaning and contribute to themselves as individuals and families. Our goal is to establish goal-oriented, confident individuals with a high work ethic,” Jamaal adds.

The Institute is located in the heart of NE Portland. The site is designed with a sleek look and an inspirational flair that creates an efficient space to facilitate learning. CBI’s concept of “learning on display” is applied to encourage interaction and support collaboration. Their multi-purpose classroom is connected to a lobby area with a large window which borrows natural light and views from outside. A featured “super-graphic” wall sets the tone and encourages staff and students to thrive in the rich learning environment.

The inaugural "Be The First" promotion for new enrollees will offer the program at a significant discount during the first year of operations. To qualify for this promotion, you must be registered for enrollment by April 1, 2017. Classes start on a quarterly basis beginning January 10, 2017.
