FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I'VE SEEN CHEAPER COURSES ELSEWHERE.

Class sizes are limited to three students and Nail Centre Course students do not work on each other.  This level of training and individual attention from your tutor is essential if you are to be confident in the treatments that you offer. 

I have, unfortunately, had students who have had training elsewhere and the class size was considerably more than three students in the class.    This simply does not allow for 

individual "hands-on" learning time. 

You should feel 100% confident in what you do; 

The following is from an ex-student

"I only have to say "Thank you Debi". I thought I knew all about gel polish nails as I had been taught by "X" Company. Debi, with all of her experience and knowledge, saved me from becoming a complete nail technician disaster. I felt special and I received a warm welcome from her. Thank you again for the amazing training. Wait for me ... I'll be back.   FS.  X xxx"


WILL OTHER STUDENTS BE WORKING ON MY NAILS?
No, on a Nail Centre Course you will not be a model for another student.  
You are paying to learn a nail service you should be doing the treatment. 
All nail treatments are done on  flexible jointed training hands specifically manufactured for use by nail students.  If a live model is required this will be stated in the course information.


DO I HAVE TO BUY A KIT?

No, I've never thought that it is right that students have to buy a kit to take into a training class

so that doesn't happen at The Nail Centre. All products and equipment that is used in the classroom is provided.


WHERE DO I BUY PRODUCTS AND EQUIPMENT AFTER THE COURSE?

You will be able to buy products and equipment here at the end of your course if you wish.

The Nail Centre has been an authorised Cuccio product distributor since 2012.

You will, upon production of your certificate, be able to open accounts with the majority of professional nail product supply companies. 


IS THERE AN EXAM?

No exam. I will assess your work and ask you questions during the course to ensure that you understand what you are learning.

Theory notes are sent to you prior to the actual training day to ensure you have time to learn it. If you are doing something incorrectly I will point you the right direction, if you do not understand something I'll explain it again differently.


AM I GUARANTEED TO PASS?

No, you will be required to meet assessment criteria in order to achieve certification.

I will help you to ensure that the course you choose is at a level suitable for your needs and ability.

I don’t guarantee you will definitely pass but I offer full support to help you achieve certification.


WILL I HAVE TO DO CASE STUDIES BEFORE I GET MY CERTIFICATE?.

To gain the maxium benefit from your course you will need to begin practising what you have learnt as soon as possible after the course. You are advised to obtain treatment insurance before you start working on clients and for that you will need your certificate

so, no case studies.  


WILL I BE ABLE TO GET INSURANCE WITH A NAIL CENTRE CERTIFICATE?

All of the courses are accredited by The Guild of Professional Beauty Therapists 

and are accepted by The Guild for membership and insurance purposes.


DO I HAVE TO WEAR A UNIFORM?
No you do not have to wear a uniform.  
I would suggest that you wear something that you feel comfortable in.
