Overview

Caring for nails on a professional basis means learning all about the intricacies of the nail unit, understanding and learning to recognise specific nail conditions, while repairing the daily wear and tear, beautifying the nails to a professional standard.

Duties and the required skill set can be both varied and extensive:

  • Manicure
  • Pedicure
  • Nail art
  • Nail wraps
  • Acrylic nails
  • UV Gel nails
  • Nail conditions
  • Health and safety within the salon
  • Chemicals used
  • Good communication with clients
  • Nail anatomy
  • Paraffin wax treatment
  • Best business practice

This online course will teach you everything that you need to know to become a nail technician.

Skin and nails constantly experience oil and moisture loss. Excessive hand washing or using everyday household cleaning products will affect the skin and nails of your clients, eradicating those natural oils and moisture daily. Daily wear and tear can even lead to split or peeling nails. Even water acts as a chemical but so do all of the nail products that are used and once as a professional nail technician, it is your responsibility to minimise chemical exposure or any potential threats as these can and do cause allergic reactions.

Being a nail technician opens up a whole world of possibilities and a career for a lifetime if you so choose. You may work varied hours while you build up the business, either as a mobile technician, renting a room in an established beauty or hairdressing salon, or for many, the ultimate dream of having an established local business in the form of a nail bar. This is a career that offers much in the way of job satisfaction. It requires knowledge, determination and creativity to be a top technician but as with most things in life, the results that you achieve are as a direct response to the effort that you put into your career.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
