There are no formal pre-requirements for this course, although we highly recommend our Manicure & Pedicure Course be completed prior to or alongside nail extension courses to provide detailed knowledge of working with natural nails and as some insurers may require this to cover you to provide nail extensions.

One of our BEST SELLING COURSES! Earn up to £25-£30 an hour providing these lucrative treatments!

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
  • Achieving correct product ration
  • Application of acrylic
  • Maintenance procedure
  • Removal procedure
  • Aftercare advice

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 learn the theory of the treatment firstly, and spend the majority of the day practising your practical skills, with a short break for lunch. 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.

We do not include any kits within our training courses, however we provide all products and tools required to complete the practical training on the day, at the training centre for you to use. We took this approach following student feedback so that students are not tied into specific kits or brands of products as part of their course fee, before they are trained and able to make an informed choice. Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.

We recommend attending training where you will gain advice about different brands and suppliers to enable you to purchase products from your chosen supplier directly following your training. We do offer selected starter kits available to purchase through our website & supplied directly from the supplier to you by courier.

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. However, we recommend students consider completing the Manicure & Pedicure training course prior to or alongside training within Nail Extensions (unless already completed equivalent training elsewhere) as some insurers require you to have training within working upon natural nails in order to fully cover you to provide nail extension treatments.

You will work on a professional nail trainer hand on your training day so no models are required. All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend. No kit is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee.

On the training day, you only need to bring a hand towel for your personal use, completed enrolment form and cold food for your lunch (e.g. sandwich/salad). Tea & coffee are provided on the training day.

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. All of our tutors are dedicated to maintaining their knowledge and keeping up to date with the latest treatments and techniques in the ever-changing industry.

If you would like to read more about our fantastic tutors individually, please have a look at our Meet the Tutors page.

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.

All of our diploma courses enable you to work from both home and mobile offering the specialised treatment(s) that you have completed. You can start earning by offering treatments to paying clients as soon as you have obtained your insurance; however it is recommended that you undertake some further training within nail services such as our Manicure & Pedicure course to ensure you are confident in the widest range of popular nail services possible, to best meet the needs of your clients.

We offer high-quality ABT accredited training with experienced tutors, professional equipment and a great atmosphere to train in. Our training centres are well-equipped, within easy reach of public transport and regularly inspected by the awarding body (VTCT) which we provide qualifications through; to ensure we are giving you the best service for your money. We pride ourselves on working with only qualified and industry experienced tutors who are friendly, welcoming and happy to go the extra mile to deliver the very best student experience possible.

All centres have the very latest equipment and products required to adhere to industry standards. We also provide free and unlimited on-going access to our Support Team who are available to answer queries or provide guidance within any aspect of your course with us, contactable on either email or telephone.

    :

    I would like to start by saying the course trainer (Alexia) was BRILLIANT. She was so helpful, patient and thorough. Couldn’t have asked for a better trainer. She took her time to make sure every single person understood what to do and wrapped their head around how to actually do it. From nail prep, to tip application to acrylic application. I feel so much better about practicing alone now. I will be booking onto a couple more courses as per her recommendation following my training session. The day was well structured and we were given good time to practice everything.

  39. Great course and tutor

    :

    This was my 4th attendance course at the Beauty Academy and my 3rd tutored by Gigi. Following my very first course back in June and then August I was inspired by both Gigi and Lisa and actually decided to go on and enroll for the full VTCT diploma. The last 2 courses I attended were also tutored by Gigi, gel and acrylic nail extensions. Both days were very enjoyable and have given me i feel the tools I need to understand these techniques and start applying them. Gigi is always very generous with her information and support, happy to discuss or answer questions on topics other than what is strictly taught on the course and very patient in her teaching. All this without making pupils feel ‘silly’ or slow. Very importantly these courses also made me understand and decide what I really want to pursue and where my main interest lies.
    I would recommend the Beauty Academy in Reading to anyone and am most likely to go back for more

    :

    I did a one day acrylic nail course about 5 years ago at my college and sadly didn’t practice enough to really get good at doing them, so, I decided I would give the class another go here at The Beauty Academy. The tutor Karen was really patient, friendly and knowledgable with bags of experience which really put me at ease. It was quite a challenging day in terms of it being a one day course as you learn a lot in a few hours. But it was very enjoyable and I will definitely be returning for more!

    By Simona
  • So glad I attended this course!!

    I would like to start by saying the course trainer (Alexia) was BRILLIANT. She was so helpful, patient and thorough. Couldn’t have asked for a better trainer. She took her time to make sure every single person understood what to do and wrapped their head around how to actually do it. From nail prep, to tip application to acrylic application. I feel so much better about practicing alone now. I will be booking onto a couple more courses as per her recommendation following my training session. The day was well structured and we were given good time to practice everything.

    By Taija Clarke
  • My tutor Karen who lead the acrylic nail extension course in Manchester was amazing. Her friendly and warming personality soon put me at ease after walking in a little nervous. Karen is excellent at what she does and I couldn’t of asked for a better tutor

    Tutor (Rebekah) thoroughly explained everything in detail throughout the course, kept me engaged, gave feedback when necessary which is crucial when learning something new. Amazing environment to learn in, gave brand recommendations which is really useful for new starters to give them a guide into where they should be spending their money. Overall, tutor was amazing at her job, would definitely do another course!

  • Friendly, welcoming tutor - Bev!

    I came to the academy for acrylic nail extension could which I was quite nervous about. Bev was really welcoming and friendly and made the course really enjoyable.
    She was very very very approachable which made me feel at ease asking any questions especially when it came to applying the acrylic powder.
    Best tutor I have come across at the academy so far as I have attended one before too. She broke down the practical which was easier to follow through. Definitely recommend doing courses at the academy., even better if you get Bev as your tutor!

    Amazing. I highly recommend this course. I tried to learn acrylic method on youtube for ages. One day at Beauty academy in Reading finally teach me how to use correct ratio of liquid and powder.

  • Acrylic Nail Extensions

    Loved my course and the tutor was great! I learnt a lot and can’t wait to start getting some more practice!

    By Natalie
  • Great course and tutor

    This was my 4th attendance course at the Beauty Academy and my 3rd tutored by Gigi. Following my very first course back in June and then August I was inspired by both Gigi and Lisa and actually decided to go on and enroll for the full VTCT diploma. The last 2 courses I attended were also tutored by Gigi, gel and acrylic nail extensions. Both days were very enjoyable and have given me i feel the tools I need to understand these techniques and start applying them. Gigi is always very generous with her information and support, happy to discuss or answer questions on topics other than what is strictly taught on the course and very patient in her teaching. All this without making pupils feel ‘silly’ or slow. Very importantly these courses also made me understand and decide what I really want to pursue and where my main interest lies.
    I would recommend the Beauty Academy in Reading to anyone and am most likely to go back for more

  • Really enjoyable!

    I did a one day acrylic nail course about 5 years ago at my college and sadly didn’t practice enough to really get good at doing them, so, I decided I would give the class another go here at The Beauty Academy. The tutor Karen was really patient, friendly and knowledgable with bags of experience which really put me at ease. It was quite a challenging day in terms of it being a one day course as you learn a lot in a few hours. But it was very enjoyable and I will definitely be returning for more!
