ONLINE Dipping Systems for Beginners

Terms & Conditions

I know it's normal to skim the T&C's but this is not a copy and paste template - please do read and make sure you understand all of the below.

  1. Course Fees
    1. Once your enrolment is processed, you will receive an invoice via email. Your place in the course will be held for 48 hours to allow for payment after which, if unpaid and if we are unable to contact you, your enrolment will be reversed and the place made available for someone else. At this point you will receive an invoice for $99 to cover the administration costs of processing and then reversing your enrolment so it is very important that you only enrol when you are 100% ready and have the full fees available to you.
    2. Temporary Clause - When you complete this enrolment form, a confirmation screen will appear advising that you can pay 7 days prior to the course. Please note that this is incorrect - you do need to pay within 48 hours of enrollment to secure your place on the course. NO terms other than those listed on this page apply to this course. We are working with our web team to amend this error.
    3. Payment can be made by bank transfer to Monaco Nail Artists Ltd, ASB 12-3233-0616846-05 with your invoice number as a reference. Other forms of payment can be accepted by prior arrangement. Call (09) 574 5573 to request another option.
  2. Payment Plans
    1. Payment Plans can be arranged on a case-by-case basis.
    2. Any missed payments will result in immediate withdrawal of the Payment Plan and full payment will be required within 48 hours to keep your place. Failure to do so will result in cancellation terms listed above being enforced without exception.
  3. Cancellations/Withdrawals
    1. Once paid, course fees are non-refundable as access is given immediately.
  4. Assessments
    1. There are four Assessments - Theory, Practical Gel Polish, Practical Liquid and Powder and Practical Hard Gel. These can be completed durig Supervised or Unsupervised Practice Events.
    2. The Theory Assessment is to be completed from home via this link - By accepting these terms you also accept the terms on the first page of the Assessment.
    3. The pass mark for each Assessment is 80% with no exceptions
    4. All Assessments must be passed within your 12 month Study Period (the 12 months from Course Commencement), with no exceptions.
    5. Around 50% of students pass Acrylic and Hard Gel Practical assessments on their first attempt, and around 80% pass Gel Polish on their first attempt. You should be prepared to repeat if necessary.
  5. Certificates
    1. A combined certificate will be awarded for all classes.
    2. If you meet the criteria of the Foundation Certificate of Nail Technology, you will receive this certificate as well as formal confirmation of your Assessment marks.
  6. Product
    1. We don't supply take-home Starter Kits however we do supply all product used during Supervised and Unsupervised Practice Events - most schools that supply Starter Kits expect you to use them during classes, leaving you with very little take-home product.
    2. During training you you will get to know what you like and don't like, decide what you need and don't need, and then we teach you how to choose suppliers and product and how to order for yourself - something no one else teaches! We decided we didn't want to be choosing how you spend your money by selling you stuff you don't need. When you do buy product you make money off all of it instead of using it up on free models, and we've also sourced student discounts for you that actually make the product cheaper in the long run.
    3. Products supplied during class must be left in their original condition, with the exception of expected usage. Should anything change condition in your care (for example breakages, spillages, disappearances), you will be charged 60% of the value of that item, payable immediately.

  8. Expectations
    1. As you are learning, please place reasonable expectations on yourself – not every set will last as long as they are meant to when applied with experience. This doesn't mean you're no good or you haven't learnt anything - when you first learnt to drive you were probably terrible. When you passed your test you were good enough - but compared to now? Experience and practice are everything.
    2. If you need extra help, there is lots available - it is your responsibility to ask for it.

Information provided within the group is copyrighted by Monaco Nail Academy and individuals found sharing it with non-group-members will be removed and our right to pursue court action for copyright infringement may be invoked. In saying that, we've never had to remove people for any reason other than non-completion before - we just reserve the right to protect the wonderful community we currently have.
