What is the STAR Process?

  • Hold a Certificate III in hairdressing or Barbering and completed the requisite 12-month (post Cert III) industry experience; or
  • Have not completed an apprenticeship but developed enough skills and knowledge through employment and training in the industry; or have gained overseas trade qualifications and experience
  • International students holding a Cert III, completed Post Cert III industry period, and thereafter, intending to work in SA
