We teach using Artistic Rock Hard LED Gel. 90% of the tips and tricks taught in this class will be non-brand specific and we will specify where something is specific to the Artistic brand. This class is perfect for students who want to use Artistic Rock Hard LED Gel but is also just as suitable for students who use completely different brands and just want to perfect their overall application skills or learn Hard Gel Application from scratch.

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

Upon completion of this course, you will have the opportunity to sit a Theory Assessment (from home, online) and Hard Gel Assessment (at one of our many Assessment events). Once you reach a passing grade of 80% on both Assessments you will be awarded a certificate and be able to provide Hard Gel services for clients.

Feel free to spread your classes out over up to a year - you don't need to do them all at once.

You will still have a year to pass your assessments and complete your portfolio.

The Foundation Certificate in Nail Technology is our most popular and most thorough certification, covering manicures, pedicures, gel polish, hard gel, acrylic, art, and theory. Our most successful Graduates tend to come from the Foundation Certificate with many running their own businesses and others working for well known salons such as Leah Light Nails and Beauty.

Can I do this course online?

An online version of this class is available at http://monacopro.co.nz/product/1332/tech-booster-hard-gel.

A certificate will only be awarded once you pass the online Theory Assessment, and attend an Assessments and Portfolio day, passing your Hard Gel Assessment. In some cases we may have an Assessor in your local area but generally Assessments and Portfolio Days are held in Auckland.

We believe passionately in the quality of our courses, but don't just ask us - ask our Graduates!
