After Training

The 4-day Acrylic Nail Extensions Course consists of both theory and practical elements although most of the theory will be done prior to the course date giving more hands-on practice time in the classroom. After attending each of the first 3 days of the training, you will be required to practice the techniques you have learned and complete case studies before your next class date. On day 4 you are required to successfully complete a full set of acrylic nail enhancements before you are issued with a Acrylic Nail Extension Diploma accredited by ABT which will enable you to obtain the insurance required to offer your new skill to clients. If we feel after the exam you require more practice another exam date will be arranged.
