Do I have to attend classes somewhere, or can I learn from home?

With technology changing constantly, we’ve paid attention to this and are on the cutting edge of new modes of education. We are very proud to bring to you our ONLINE courses.

This approach to teaching is unique within the Spa industry. Not only will you learn everything that is taught within the traditional school environment, but you’ll learn all this within the comfort of your home or office.

There is no longer the need to attend regular set classroom time, which will save you time and money. Just ‘attend’ classes when it’s convenient for you and your demanding schedule. As well, you no longer have the added expenses which come with attending conventional schools (babysitter, parking, gas etc) as well as all the other expenses associated with “traditional” teaching methods.

We’ve enjoyed great success in teaching our online courses, and have graduated many satisfied students.

NOTE: you’ll receive your Diploma upon successful completion of all our courses.

How often is Enrollment?

Unlike traditional schools, colleges or universities, there are no terms, semesters, or specified intake dates for our uniquely flexible at home learn classes. Our system of continuous enrolment means that you can enrol on any day at any time of the year. This allows you the freedom to plan your studies to fit into your lifestyle.

All theory and practical applications are taught online and all courses are self-paced

How does the Signup Process and Program work and when do I get access?

Once you are enrolled and have created a student profile, you will have 24 hour full access to your online course and will be able to log in and out as your schedule permits.

After each chapter, there is an online multiple choice exam. Your answers will be corrected immediately upon submission. You’ll be tutored through a series of online videos, which walk you through each and every step of nail application and techniques.

You’re required to perform the practical assignments for some of the courses – the procedure will be explained in more detail once enrolled in a particular course.

You will also be required to write exams on the theory.

Is everything included in the Registration?

The Nail Tech courses, and Manicure/Pedicure course come with a complete kit, which is included in the cost. There is a manual available if you choose to purchase it. It is not mandatory but we highly recommend it. Shipping of the kits to you is NOT included.

The Eye Lash Course comes with a complete JB Lash kit. Shipping is not included.

The Esthetic and Spa Therapy courses do not come with kits. We do have kits we recommend that you can purchase at a discount. Textbooks and shipping are not included.

What is a “learn from home” Nail Tech Course?

While the industry products have advanced, so have the tools available for teaching. Previously, you had to have a model sit for hours while you practiced. We now have state of the art model hands that look and move just like a human hand, for you to learn on. Instead of a school that you have to go to daily, we have online courses. How can it get more convenient than that?

If you take away the need for a live model, take away the school building and replace them with a model hand and an online course, you now have the Nail Tech online course!

We’ve spent the last few years developing our courses to offer you the best training possible. We’ll provide you with a training hand and the products needed. All you need is a table and a computer.

Can anyone learn from home?

This course lends itself perfectly for all single and/or stay at home parents, students who can’t get to a school in their area, full time employees who can’t quit work to attend school, as well as anyone wanting to take a course in their free time, be it evenings or weekends.

While very convenient, the “online” method of teaching isn’t for everyone, (although many find it to be “their solution” to acquiring their education), you’ll need to possess a strong sense of self-discipline and determination, as learning now depends on YOU.

Is this school registered?

Absolutely. We are registered with PTIB (Private Training Institutions Branch).

The Nail Tech Course – you will preform nail applications on a nail trainer hand and when you are satisfied with your work, you simply pop the nail tips off and mail them to head office for grading.

Once one module has been completed, you can then proceed to the next module. There are 35-48 practical assignments and between 15-22 exams (depending on the course).
