More About the Groomed Academy Online Courses

The online courses available through Groomed Academy, under the leadership of Suzette Coetzee in Mossel Bay, are run in conjunction with the Mike Taylor Educational Portal. They offer dual certification in South Africa and the UK. This means even more career choices and exciting international prospects for barbers who graduate! Groomed Academy students will be the first students in South Africa to have exclusive access to the resources which will support them in developing lifelong skills in the industry.

This teamwork and partnership allows for exceptional training both to those starting a career in barbering and those wishing to further their skills. These include theory and practical lessons, presented by Mike Taylor himself as well as weekly live one-on-one Online Mentor sessions conducted by Groomed Barber Academy.

Eric is delighted that this will expand the horizons for Groomed Academy students in terms of further education as well as international employment, adding to the career value that these exceptional courses provide.
