QUALIFICATIONS, INSURANCE & EXPERIENE FAQ's

Will I be qualified enough to open my own nail salon – even without an NVQ?


An ABT diploma is fully recognised, accredited and insurable, meaning you will be fully qualified as a nail technician. An NVQ requires more training (usually 6 months+) to meet the awarding bodies’ requirements. Diplomas are an intense, convenient and fast track way into the world of nails for those with other responsibilities and commitments, enabling you to progress in your career quickly and efficiently. All students taking our courses are guaranteed to be trained by passionate, experienced and focused nail technicians, ready and waiting to pass on their own experiences, tips and advice.




What level is the nail diploma equivalent to?


NVQ level contents regularly change to include different techniques at different levels, so it's hard to give a definitive answer. All you need to know is that you will be fully qualified in all the areas you require.




Can you REALLY learn everything in three days?


It takes a lot of hands-on practice to become a great nail technician but our trainers are there to ensure all the correct information and techniques required are delivered to you over the course. Covering all questions and queries, they will work hard with you to get you to a point practically where you are confident in knowing where you should be and how to get there, and even if your application may still need some work, they’ll provide you with ongoing help and support after the course to help you nail the skills you’ve learned. We’re not sure if we’ve mentioned it yet, but we also offer FREE REFRESHER TRAINING, which gives you permanent access to all the course contents for your continuing professional development. (Ok. We’ll stop now.)




What does FREE REFRESHER NAIL TRAINING mean?


Exactly what it says on the tin! Once you attend any of our nail courses, you are welcome to come back to the same nail course FREE OF CHARGE as many times as you wish. We want YOU to be the best nail technician you can be – that means when you join the NTC family, ongoing support, training and encouragement are provided as standard. (We’re also big WhatsApp keenos, and always welcome funny memes. #justsaying)




Where can I obtain nail technician insurance?


Your trainer will talk you through all the requirements, but here are a few examples:

  • ABT
  • Balens
  • Nails Direct

NAIL COURSE FAQ's

 

NAIL COURSE FAQ's

Will you provide PPE and how many students in each course?


Each class runs with a maximum of ten students but we usually have an average of six students in each class. We are following all government guidelines and providing all necessary PPE including masks, gloves and hand sanitiser. We will also check all students' temperatures before entering classrooms.




What should I wear to the nail course?


We believe that people learn better in a relaxed environment. Our advice is to be comfortable but presentable. Also, be aware that products may spill so don’t wear anything you wouldn’t want to get damaged.




Can I wear nail extensions to the nail course?


No, during the course you will be working on each other so you must come with bare nails.




Can I bring a model to the nail course?


No need – you’ll be working on your fellow students. (Yay for efficiency.)




Can I bring my own products to the nail course?


Products will be supplied for you during the course, but you are free to bring your own equipment if you wish.




Will I be able to remove the nails I have had applied during the nail course?


he removal process will be explained and demonstrated, although not carried out by students as this would eat into too much practical time during the course. Therefore, we recommend preparation for removal at home, for which you will need 100% acetone. This can be purchased at any pharmacy.




Will I use a drill/ e-file during the nail course?


All filing will be undertaken manually during the nail course.




Do the products cause any damage to the nail?


Contrary to popular belief, no damage or discomfort should be caused if products are used correctly by a professional nail technician.

If I change my mind on my Complete Nail Tech Course booking can I get a refund on my deposit?


If this year has taught us anything, it’s that plans can change in an instant. (Yes, we’re going to say it … sorry.) Due to the “unprecedented times” we currently find ourselves in, therefore, we’ve changed our deposit system to - FULLY REFUNDABLE. We can either refund you in full or change your dates to meet your suitability.




Can I change my nail course booking dates?


Yes, if your plans change we are more than happy to try to accommodate you for other course dates. This will be subject to spaces.




Can I pay in instalments?


Unfortunately, we do not currently offer an instalment plan but for our Complete Nail Technician Course we only ask for a £25 deposit to book your place, with the remaining balance only due until one week prior to the course commencement date. We are also happy to refund your deposit, should you change your mind.
