Why take this course?

Manicure and pedicure treatments are much more than polished nails! This type of beauty therapy is a great means of relaxation, and can help increase your confidence and self-esteem. Learning about these treatments is a great way to enhance your own personal beauty regime. Throughout the course you will develop a good understanding of the techniques and approaches needed to provide effective and healthy hand and foot care.

Please note that this course is for interest only and does not sufficiently qualify learners for professional practice in beauty or complementary therapies.
