Training Information

We are here to not only help you to choose which course best suits you, but also to provide key information about bookings and classes. Where, what, who and why are the questions you should ask yourself when booking a course as you need the course to suit your budget and potential client base.

Where?

We offer classroom and online classes and aim to offer 7 days a week training including evenings if you do choose online.

How is this available?

Because we have a huge team of award-winning educators who not only have venues for classrooms but also online. Lesson plans and courses are run no differently between classroom and online so choosing will be down to your commitments and flexibility. Classroom dates are set dates in set locations and a classroom environment is a great way to meet new like-minded people that are on the same path and journey as you and in some cases make friends for life. Many people find a classroom setting will aid them in their learning and keep them more focused on a day away from distractions at home. Online lessons are better suited to a more nervous learner who feels anxious in new spaces, parents who have children at home and struggle with child care or people that have work commitments that mean they can't attend classroom training.

What course is best for you?

Our courses vary from a more natural route gel polish and builder gel to a more extensive fast track course which consists of gel polish and acrylic liquid and powder system. We also offer training for advanced nail techs and beginner techs so whatever your journey we have the right course here for you.
