What is the best qualification for a nail technician?

A qualification in nail tech will allow you to meet industry standards and position yourself as a much more viable candidate for employment.


It is not necessary to hold a qualification to become a nail technician. However, employers will find it highly desirable. A qualification in nail tech will make you stand out from other applicants, and it will increase your chances of getting a job at a spa or salon that is highly regarded.


If you are interested in learning the skills needed to become a nail technician and how to enter the nail industry, we recommend that firstly you achieve a manicure qualification to lay your foundations in learning techniques to build on the knowledge you will gain from this.

From here there are many accredited nail technician courses depending on your desires, such as gel, acrylic extensions, gel polish, nail art and sculpting.


The accredited nail courses at NTC will give you a strong basis for both the business side of becoming a nail technician and also the key skills.
