Attend our Acrylic nails course (AB20262) at our centre in Kent and you will be in a small group learning from a highly experienced lecturer. The Acrylic / Gel Nails course runs over two sessions after which you practice at home then return for a third session of assessment. Successful completion of this course will result in achievement of a internationally recognised qualification (NVQ/VRQ).
We only offer the NVQ/VRQ as these qualifications are widely recognised by employers looking for skilled therapists in the beauty industry.
- Those wishing to work in a salon, spa or cruise ship – minimum requirements are NVQ/VRQ Levels 2 or 3.
- Those wishing to open their own high street premises.
- Those wishing to open accounts with premium product suppliers.
Externally accredited qualifications greatly increase your chances of gaining employment. NVQ/VRQ qualifications indicate to an employer that you are able to perform treatments competently and within a commercially acceptable time.
It is fast becoming mandatory that local councils require you to hold an NVQ/VRQ qualification in order to issue you with a Special Treatments Licence.
- Health & Safety
- Anatomy and physiology
- Client care and consultation
- Apply acrylic nails
- Maintenance, repair & removal
Candidates will be assessed on both practical skills and theoretical knowledge throughout the Acrylic / Gel Nails course and will need to produce a portfolio of evidence supporting competence. You will be required to practice at home before returning for assessment.
3 sessions – you will need to bring a model to session 2 and 3
