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.

Our UV Gel Nail Extensions Course will teach you the nail extension process to begin offering this in-demand treatment to your clients, being one of the most popular nail-enhancement services currently requested in both salons and from nail technicians due to the no-odour system and long-lasting results. This course will take you through this particular extension procedure, blending techniques and maintenance procedure, including aftercare advice.

  • Health, safety & hygiene
  • Consultation techniques
  • Contraindications
  • Nail preparation
  • Tip application and blending techniques
  • Application of builder gel
  • 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.

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.

UV gel nail extensions uses a no-odour system, requiring no additional products or chemicals (sometimes referred to as a ‘pre-mixed system’), using an ultraviolet (UV) light is used to cure/set the extension. This offers a more flexible nail extension alternative for those not suited to acrylics, wanting a natural looking tip still allowing the nail underneath to grow. UV gel extensions are in high-demand and this treatment proves to be an extremely profitable skill to learn. Our one-day diploma course will teach you all you need to know about offering UV gel extensions 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.
