To ensure the highest standards of training, students will be required to pass a theory test. There may be some course information for students to download at booking & they will be required to read & learn this information prior to their course. This ensures students come to the course well prepared, so they get the most from their practical training. The practical training is structured around the course material, which is divided into four parts.
- Anatomy and physiology of the nail.
- Hygiene, Health & Safety
- The treatment
- Regulatory and statutory requirements
Emphasis is placed on the student understanding the practicalities of providing a professional treatment. They will be shown how to carry out gel techniques and be expected to carry out the treatment themselves. The student will be assessed by the lecturer of the session. If the lecturer believes the student is competent, a certificate will be awarded in accordance with our Terms & Conditions. The educator has the right to ask for further case studies if they feel the student requires more practice before gaining their certification.
