Nail Technician Professional – Acrylic Course

If you are considering a career as a qualified nail technician, our distance learning Nail Technician – Acrylic course is the ideal course for you. It contains all the elements you require to study from home in order to become a fully qualified nail technician and to secure professional indemnity insurance to practice professionally either from home, as a mobile service, or in a nail bar or salon. The Nail Technician acrylic nail course also includes information on manicures so that you will not need to do a separate manicure qualification in order to complete this course.

What are Acrylic Nails?

Acrylic overlays are probably the most popular type of artificial nail used within the industry due to their durability. They are often applied as an extension to the client’s natural nails. Acrylic nails are sometimes referred to as “liquid and powder” as they are applied using a combination of a polymer powder and a monomer liquid. The “liquid and powder” work together to provide a durable, natural looking fingernail for the client. Generally acrylic nails will last between 2 – 3 weeks; after this period maintenance and infill procedures will need to be carried out on the client’s extensions to keep them looking natural and well maintained. Our acrylic nail course will teach you all the techniques you require to be able to carry out these treatments. Plus, as with all our distance learning courses, you can study at home.

The Work of the Nail Technician

The work of a nail technician can be varied and rewarding. Not only will you apply, repair and remove false nails or extensions, but you will also offer basic treatments such as manicures and pedicures as well as ensuring your client’s nails are free from any skin or nail problems before you begin the treatment.
