Our best selling course, (For 7 years!) Upgraded Acrylic Kit:
This is a comprehensive Professional Levels 1,2 & 3, 15-module course, covering the complete range of subjects from basic hygiene principles to treatments and procedures (Acrylic, Gel, Fibreglass & much more!) We also give you access to suppliers of nail products. We show you how to pass the cost of all products on to your clients, or even to your practice clients.
This is the only course available that covers every up to date element technique and procedure in theory and practical assignments! Some other Distance Learning organisations claim to offer a level 3 qualification with far fewer assignments and very little practical work. This HLUK level 3 course covers far more in theory and practical units, compared to any other course available in the UK. Also, we have no time limit.
How does Distance Learning work?
We supply our students with approved course material and detailed instructions to complete assignments. You use email to submit your work as you complete each unit.
The assignments are marked by a Tutor, who will be assigned to you until you complete the course. No time limit!
If you need to speak to someone about your course, Student Support Advisors are trained to answer the majority of questions that can arise. If an Advisor cannot answer your question, the query will be passed to your Tutor, who may email you, or if it is appropriate, phone.
You compile a portfolio of evidence as per the instructions supplied.
Your Tutor will mark assignments promptly and give encouraging feedback. You will have the opportunity to re-submit your work if required.
Support is unlimited, by phone and email.
Phone support: 8.30 am until 8.30 pm Mon to Fri. Saturday 9.00 to 1.30 pm. At busy times, or outside of normal hours, students can leave a message. We always return calls promptly.
We do not believe in pressurising students, so we do not have time limits.
Our comprehensive HLUK Nail Technician course is written in line with NVQ in Nail Services Level 2 and 3.
Assignments are marked, graded, and we show you how to build a portfolio of evidence. The HLUK system will allow you to build more professional evidence than any other home study course. GUARANTEED.
Because the Insurance Approved HLUK Level 3 Diploma (Established over 7 years) comes with your Professional portfolio of evidence, which proves your success......This qualification has been accepted by Local Authorities, and The insurance industry.
Great news! Because we now have many of our Successful Students working as self employed technicians or working in Salons.
Please be aware that companies that offer "accredited" qualifications do not always offer good quality content/support or guaranteed Insurance Approval. We could offer courses that lead to "accredited" qualifications. We have inspected those currently offered by our competitors, and most do not meet our high standards.
Remember; Just because a qualification from our competitors is described as accredited, does not mean it is highly regarded, or even known, by Professionals in your chosen area of interest and study.

We supply detailed instructions to perform pre-treatment advice and guidance.
