This course is the perfect opportunity to practice at your own pace, on your own tasks, with the full facilities provided at Monaco Nail Academy.

  • If you are a Foundation Certificate in Nail Technology student at Monaco Nail Academy, you can choose to use this time to work on your Portfolio, sit Assessments, or to practice anything you have been stuck on. You need to supply your own models or you can find a buddy and work on each other.
  • If you are already qualified or studying elsewhere, bring a model in and work on whatever it is you need to practice.

Your fees cover all products used in class. Please do not bring your own kit.

An Educator will be available to mark Assessments with the exception of a 12-1pm lunch break. As this is an Unsupervised Portfolio and Assessments Day, at all other times they will be working on other tasks and unavailable for demos or assistance. If you need extra help, try a Supervised Portfolio and Assessments Day instead.
