Our manicuring course covers the 600 hours of nail care training required by Washington State for licensure, as well as 60 additional hours. Manicuring students obtain a thorough knowledge of artificial nail application, removal, repair, manicuring, pedicuring, nail art, safety, and sterilization procedures. Students acquire practical experience on patrons who come regularly to the Academy clinic for their beauty services. To help achieve greater poise, self-assurance, and confidence, students are instructed by staff members in ethics, motivation, RCW, WAC’s, sales, salon business practices, how to conduct a job search, resume writing, and may participate in salon visits. More detailed course information, including lesson sequence, is available in our school catalog.
