Event Details

Registration for NBTSG certification is separate from registration for host event activities (The Sharpeners' Rodeo).  Event registration link: https://sharpenersrodeo2018.eventbrite.com

The certification will provide participants with an opportunity to earn Certified Sharpener status with the NBTSG. The certification process is graded on a point system based on the quality of work in a predetermined list of steps in the sharpening process.  Judging will take place off-site.  We use a double blind system so that the judges are not biased.  Judges are selected for their outstanding achievements and expertise in their fields and are directed by the chairman of the certification committee.

Please note: Master Sharpener status is possible when certification is conducted at the annual Guild convention ONLY.

Shears certification: Participants will have two (2) hours to sharpen three damaged shears.

Blades certification: Participants will have one (1) hour to sharpen three damaged blades.

The shears and blades used for certification will be provided but tools, equipment, & supplies are NOT provided. Participants MUST bring own tools and equipment including electrical extension cords.

An orientation briefing will be conducted before the actual timed event in order to go over the NBTSG standards and expectations and answer any questions that participants may have.

Space is available for participants to test in their vehicle/trailer in the parking lot.

Limit 5 participants for shears certification on 12 May, 2018 and 5 participants for blade certification on 13 May, 2018.

Certification includes a 1 year membership in the Sharpeners Guild and the return of their shears plus a certificate of participation or achievement. Refer questions on the actual certification process to the Certification Committee Chair. 

Guild members receive a 10% rebate on certification fees.  Rebates are sent to the member's address of record after the event has concluded.

More details about NBTSG certification can be found at the NBTSG website, www.NBTSG.com/certification.

History

The National Beauty Tool Sharpeners Guild (NBTSG) was founded in 2009 by Larry Brooks of Sharp Edges/Hamaguri USA. The Brooks family hosted three very successful conventions in St. Louis, Missouri before Larry and his wife Linda retired in 2012. Upon their retirement Bonnie and Gene Megowan of Bonika Shears assumed leadership of the Guild and hosted the 2012 and 2013 conventions. Soon after the 2012 convention Bonnie started researching the possibility of restructuring the Guild into a nonprofit organization that could be managed and operated by the members themselves. During the summer of 2013 a basic organizational structure was established and the NBTSG was formally incorporated as a domestic nonprofit corporation owned by its members. The NBTSG is owned by its membership, governed by an all volunteer Board of Directors, and managed by elected officers that perform the day to day operations of the Guild. 

Mission Statement
The National Beauty Tool Sharpeners Guild is an industry trade group established to advance the knowledge and skills of beauty tool sharpeners. The organization certifies sharpeners of shears, scissors, thinning shears, and clipper blades so that there is a fair and unbiased evaluation of the sharpening ability and provides resources for best business practices, training, and the advancement of the sharpening industry. 

Vision Statement 
To become the preeminent source of knowledge and training for the beauty tool sharpening industry by hosting fun, effective, and welcoming conventions and certification events. To provide an atmosphere in which sharpeners of all experience levels can gather and learn from each other and to advance the cause of certified sharpeners and their usefulness and benefit to other industries. 

Goals 
- Foster participation in the guild and continuous improvement within our industry. 
- Be a positive and respected influence within the sharpening community. 
- Set the standards for professional sharpeners.
