I wish more people in the industry knew about courses like this so that they can further their career in what at first seemed like a disintegrating occupation.
I’ll be able to help those around me, and future employees, to maintain a safe salon to the best of my knowledge. I’ll also be able to educate clients on how to discern between a safe and clean salon, and one’s that aren’t so that they can take their health into their own hands.
Tony we admire your commitment to excellence--so good to see. Best wishes as you integrate these programs in your establishment.
The course took me 2 months to complete because I’m a bit of a work-a-holic! There is so much valid and pertinent information in this course that I found myself IMMEDIATELY implementing terms and techniques at the shop I currently work in. I can hardly wait to network with other professionals to ensure my clients have the healthiest and best experience possible with me. FCN is next!
Thank you, Sherine, for your comments. We are really proud of your achievement!
In starting a new life as a Licensed ANT, I have learned that the care of and teaching my clients will keep me right in all that I do for them because teaching my clients will allow them to see that I live by my words at all times.
Because of this course I have learned about the importance of disorders and diseases, how to run a clean, safe, and sane salon business, how to keep up a great and blessed rapport with physicians and podiatrists...and the safe way to have a autoclave in my salon.
Karen, we wish you the very best in your endeavors! Your clients are lucky to have you!
I would like to say taking the ANT & MNT courses was the best thing I have ever done in my life. It really changed me. I never knew how much I'd learn doing my internship with a Podiatrist and learning about diabetes and etc. Please sign up today and take these courses.
Gloria, congrats on your achievement! Best wishes in your career!
This course can help a new technician (or one who's been in the industry for a few years)
really enhance their knowledge beyond what is taught in school to pass their State's
licensing exam. I have personally gained a better insight for my natural nail practice
and am more confident in working with clients with diabetic, immune suppressed or geriatic.
I now work at an indep. living community and this would not have been an option
without the education and support I have received from Nailcare Academy!!!
We are so proud of all you do in your community, Moe! Best wishes!
I will be assisting in foot care with a certified foot care nurse with the elderley and chronically ill. More videos showing the techniques please!
Lorraine, we are working on this very thing! In October we are rolling out the latest version of the ANT--new delivery software, new information in the modules, hundreds of graphics and images are being added. We are also embedding several videos in the modules so that learning is reinforced immediately. Thank you for your input!
The Advanced Nail Technician Certification Program is a great tool that I suggest all NTs to take. It provides in-depth information as to the whys and hows of the regulations and even further to make the NT and the clients feel safer at work every day. The course is divided into modules for easier learning and it can be done at your own pace. No need to worry about having to finish by a due date. We are all busy Bs!
Overall I enjoyed the ANT course. I thought there was a lot of information included in the modules. The parts that were most enjoyable and informative to me were the modules focusing on the differences between an actual autoclave and the "sterilizing trays" that I have become so accustomed to seeing in salons, and how to properly use them, the modules focusing on the various diseases we should be aware of when dealing with clients, and the modules about caring for elderly clients since this is an area of interest for me in my career. The information provided was invaluable and definitely made me more excited about my career endeavors while encouraging me to be more cautious. Thank you for all that you do for our industry!
The Advance Nail Technician course takes the nail technician's career to a new level. As a nail tech/manicurist for over 17 years, I learned techniques, protocols and information that is very relevant to working in the industry now that was never taught when I began my career--that ensures the safety of my clients, as well as myself, and taps into a previously unknown clientele who are loyal because of this new expertise. This course is bringing respect back to our industry. Thank you Nailcare Academy!
