Description: Our 1 day Acrylic Nails course teaches you how to create professional Acrylic Nail Extensions.
Our 1 day Acrylic Nails course teaches you how to create professional Acrylic nail extensions using tips. Once you book your place you will receive a booking confirmation containing your online account details so you can start the course straight away. This will enable you to start learning the theory at your own pace, and prepare you for the practical day at the School. We have a high success rate for students, so rest assured that we will provide you with all the support you need to pass your diploma/VRQ.
Our course is accredited by the beauty guild making it an insurable certificate which allows you to use this treatment on the general public and charge for this service. Whilst this course is open to complete beginners, we do advise that experience of manicure would be beneficial.
Training for all courses takes place at our Beauty Schools based in either:
Chatham, Kent - Parking opposite in Union Square Pay & Display (Behind GALA Bingo)
Rainham, Essex/Surrey - Free parking on site
Docklands, London - No Parking at centre (www.justpark.co.uk)
We provide students with access to our online training area before they attend the school. We find by doing this they are able to complete the theory in their own time and are able to absorb more information. This also means we have more time for practical, which then allows the tutor to demonstrate best practices as well as answer any Q & A’s.
The really depends on what your looking to do, if your looking to treat friends, go mobile or run your business from home then we’d recommend a diploma by the Beauty Guild. However, if you were looking to work in a Salon or Spa most would require you to have an NVQ/VRQ qualification.
If you decide on the NVQ/VRQ qualification you'll also be required to attend an additional day for assessment, further to this you'll automatically receive a diploma qualification. More information will be given to you during your practical day at the School.
The upgrade will cost £158 (£220 for Full Body Massage, Microdermabrasion, Reflexology and Facial Electrotherapy), and is available during checkout.
Yes, you’ll have the option to do this. You’ll have to pay the additional fee (see above) for the upgrade, and we’ll then provide you with all the additional material to pass your NVQ qualification. We’ll then schedule in your assessment day at the school.
Can I get insurance with my Diploma certificate?
Many insurance companies will insure you with a Diploma certificate. However it is your responsibility to check this prior to booking the course.
It will depend on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation and the notice given(see T&C for more details). In the instance that a refund is requested due to illness, medical notification will be required. Unfortunately we are unable to give a refund if the online theory has been accessed/completed.
Yes. As well as doing the online theory at your own pace, students will find that by practising at home AFTER you have taken the course, performing approximately 6 -8 treatments, they will achieve more confidence in doing treatments.
We believe in keeping the class sizes small, so students have more one 2 one time with our tutors. Our normal class size is 4 to 8.
Please see below for any course specific requirements regarding models as some courses DO REQUIRE models.
In most cases, no models are required; students will work on each other for the practical element. However, if you feel more comfortable bringing your own model for the beauty course just let us know in advance via email. Failure to inform us that you are bringing a model could result in your course being cancelled without refund. If the course has an uneven number of students, you may be asked to bring your own model however you will be contacted by admin to discuss this.
No, everything will be provided for you on the course. However some students find it beneficial to bring a pen and paper to make notes.
