In 2016, the Cosmetology Association formed a partnership with the Nova Scotia Apprenticeship Agency. Subsequently, a Hairstylist Apprenticeship TAC was formed in 2017, with the Hairstylist Apprenticeship pilot project beginning in March 2018. The program will continue until 2020 (the program is now closed to new apprentices). There are 8 apprentices working towards certification in 8 salons through the two-year period.
