Nail Qualification Information

Nail qualifications are now available and we recommend that all nail technicians gain their qualifications as soon as possible. Many local authorities are enforcing nail technician licensing, so obtaining a formal qualification is becoming essential if you wish to run a commercial business. Licensing of nail technicians is being actively enforced in all London Boroughs.

The Vocational Training Charitable Trust (VTCT) is the awarding body at the local Beauty Academy (our partners in training). Recognised qualifications confirm that the holder is fully competent to perform the stated skills to the level required by the industry. The qualifications only incorporate the theory that is essential to perform the specific skill. When you have qualified you will be issued with a recognised qualification Certificate.

If you wish to achieve qualifications you will need to register with the awarding body and complete your training through a recognised Beauty Academy

NVQ qualifications are currently widely recognised and enable the candidate to readily qualify for insurance and employment. However, in an industry that is constantly growing and changing, this may lead to other qualifications becoming desirable.

It is very important at the outset to consider insurance cover.

There are different types of insurance - for example Treatment Risk and Public Liability Insurance.

Ask your local insurance company for advice and a quotation or contact Professional Nails Direct on 01622 740040.
