Will I be qualified as a Nail Tech when I finish this course?

Stand Alone Qualification

If you are not working towards the Foundation Certificate in Nail Technology but would like a certificate for this course, you have two options -

  • If you already hold a Nail Tech Qualification - Email learn@monaco.ac.nz with proof of qualification (if we haven't already seen it) and let us know that you've finished this training. Once verified, you will receive recognition.
  • If you do not hold a Nail Tech Qualification - First, you need to have completed The Theory of Nails and passed the respective Assessment. Next, you need to book your Manicure Assessment, either in Auckland at a Supervised or Unsupervised Practice Day, or you can contact us learn@monaco.ac.nz to see if a Mentor is available in your region to offer a Supervised Practice Day closer to home. Once you reach a passing grade of 80% on both Assessments you will be awarded a certificate and be able to provide Manicure services for clients.

Note that if you are completing other Modules, Practice Days can be combined - eg you can do your Manicure and Acrylic Assessments on the same day.
