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. As you will give and receive treatments as part of this course, it is important you arrive free from nail polish, gel polish or nail extensions in order to complete this course.
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.

Gel polish is an essential skill for any therapist; all of us want attractive hands but we don’t always have the time to maintain them. It is one of the most in-demand nail treatments throughout the country, specifically because of the high-gloss shine finish, zero-drying time along with no edge-wear, chips, scratching or dulling; ideal for those who lead a busy lifestyle. Following the course, you will be able to work from home and mobile as a nail technician offering a gel polish manicure (once you have obtained insurance). This course would complement our Manicure and Pedicure training course, as these treatments are frequently requested together.
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. You must arrive for the course free of nail polish, gel polish and/or nail extensions as an important part of the course is to give and receive treatments upon the natural nails.
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 day.

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.
Once you have completed your diploma course, you have the opportunity to further your skills by completing additional training.
