Nail Technician Program


Our Nail Technician Program 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 trends, and study the different types of nail enhancements. 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. This esthetics program gives you the knowledge and techniques you need to be able to work at the highest level of professionalism.
