Our Acrylic Nail Extensions Course will teach you the acrylic nail extension process to begin offering this treatment to your clients, being one of the most popular nail-enhancement services currently requested in both salons and from nail technicians. This course will take you through the extension procedure, blending techniques and maintenance procedure, including aftercare advice. 

  • Health, safety & hygiene
  • Consultation techniques
  • Contraindications
  • Nail preparation
  • Tip application and blending techniques

This course is structured over one day and runs from 10am – 4pm. We ask students to arrive at 9.45am to ensure a prompt start.

You will practice your treatments using a professional nail trainer (mannequin) hand to allow you the maximum time and opportunity during the course to acquire and demonstrate your practical skills.

Acrylic nail extensions uses a two-component system with liquid and powder, making it the strongest, most versatile nail enhancement. They are easy to shape to your client’s desired style and they can dramatically enhance the look of natural nails. The acrylic nail extension system is the most popular in the UK, holding about 50% of the nail market, making it an extremely profitable skill to learn. Our one-day diploma course will teach you all you need to know to begin offering this treatment to your clients.

Our diploma courses are suitable for complete beginners and do not require any prior learning to be able to train with us; many of our students are not yet beauty trained and are looking to start up a business in the industry. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.

We are so proud at The Beauty Academy to work with such a professional, passionate and friendly team of tutors, all of which hold a Level 2 and Level 3 qualification in their specialised sector. Our tutors are also all qualified with either Level 4 PTTLS or equivalent teaching awards in education, with years of experience in beauty-related professional industries. Furthermore, our tutors who are involved in the assessment process all hold an Assessors Award.

We pride ourselves on the welcoming nature of our tutors and their ability to engage, educate and enrich students from all ages and backgrounds.

When you have successfully completed your training course(s), you will receive a diploma certificate issued by The Beauty Academy and accredited by ABT. This not only demonstrates your commitment to the training, but also allows you to obtain Public Liability insurance so you can start offering treatments to paying clients from home or mobile.

Once you have completed your practical training day with us, there is no additional work to be completed. Your diploma certificate will be sent to you within 1-2 working days and you can then begin working from home and/or mobile, once insurance has been obtained.
