Vizitech

Vizitech USA is an education and training company specializing in 3D technology, augmented reality (AR), and virtual reality (VR) learning programs. We take complex concepts and processes, such as frog dissection in the classroom or safety training in the workplace, and recreate them virtually for an interactive, safe learning experience. Vizitech USA’s MedTable AR only available at The Atlanta Barber College. The mixed reality training program is designed to educate students more efficiently in the General Sciences (Anatomy, Chemistry & Physiology) chapters. These chapters tend to be the most difficult when training for the barber and beauty industry.

e-Learning & m-Learning

Atlanta Barber College introduces “No Books, No Pens & No Paper.” This is an effort to support the students & the environment. It’s The ABC’s unique way of Going Green. The increasing adoption of tablets, mobile phones and mobile devices has spearheaded the demand for mobile learning, or “m-Learning / e-Learning” as the demand continues to rise. The traditional classroom setting has long passed. The days of a teacher, textbook and chalkboard have evolved. An instructor can now connect with remote students as if they were all in the same class setting. Also, barbering classes can now be conducted in a virtual environment to sharpen skills while fulfilling the state requirement for licensing.

If barbering is your passion, then we want you here. To make the enrollment experience as seamless as possible, we offer a number of different payment plans. Please feel free to reach out to us for more details on payments.
