Nail services are the ultimate in pampered hand and foot care. The Nail Technician Certificate is attractive to people with creativity, visual perception, and good interpersonal skills. Students develop nail technician skills in the classroom and simulated salon setting. Coursework covers laws, regulations, business management and ethics to help students who may want to start their own business.
The 324-hour, 16-week certificate prepares students for the state licensing examination to practice as a manicurist. Classes are held in fall three days per week. Online coursework is required.
