Our training courses teach the generic treatment techniques and processes, they are not brand specific.

To complete this course, you must already be trained and experienced within providing basic acrylic nail extension treatments (tip and overlay method).
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 the 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 course will teach you to perform advanced acrylic nail extension treatments using the sculpting method, with confidence. Build upon your existing knowledge and skills of tip and overlay application, sculpting allows you to save time on application with no tips to apply or tailor, no blending of tips required and much greater flexibility as to the look created.
Nail extensions are one of the most popular treatments with nail technicians and with many busy nail techs typically completing 3 or more sets of nail extensions per day, it is easy to see the benefits of being able to utilise an E-File to reduce treatment times and take the strain out of filing, reducing the amount of manual filing required. Our E-Filing course will teach you to safely and correctly utilise use of an electric nail file (e-file), also sometimes known as a nail drill to speed up your acrylic nail services and quickly refine your treatment results.
This one day course will teach you the skills to apply and use nail forms as a base for building incredible and professional nail extension results working with acrylic, plus utilsing an e-file to speed up treatments and refine your results more easily.
This diploma course is suitable for existing nail technicians looking to expand their skills. To get the most from this course you need to have previously trained in acrylic/UV nail extensions using the tip and overlay method. You may wish to look at our 1 Day Acrylic Nails Course, 1 Day UV Gel Nail Course or our Virtual Academy Acrylic Nails Course to gain this required knowledge first.
You will work on a professional nail trainer hand on your training day so no models are required. No acrylic kit or e-file is required to complete the training day, nor included in the course fee. All products and tools are provided for the training day at the centre when you attend.
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).
