• Nail Technician Certificate

    Our Nail Technician Certificate teaches you everything you must know to become an expert in manicures and pedicures. Working with professional products, develop the skills you need to perform both classic manicures and classic pedicures. Build on that training by learning the advanced techniques involved in spa manicures/pedicures and gel polish applications. Explore current nail art and gel enhancement trends. Practice what you learn by performing services – on classmates, models and clients – in the classroom and in the school spa. Finally, learn how to create a professional resumé and prepare for a formal interview while also examining what is required to open and successfully run your own business. This esthetics certificate gives you the knowledge and techniques you need to be able to work at the highest level of professionalism.
