Here at BC Beauty Training, we specialise in one to one training, enabling us to give you our full attention and allowing you to take the course at your pace. We do offer courses to more than one student at a time. If you would like to take a course with a colleague or friend, you would both qualify for a discount of 10% off of your course price. We like to keep our groups small, so as to not dilute the quality of our training. Groups can be up to 4 at one time. If groups are larger, we will have two trainers on site.

We ask that students arrive on time for their course for a prompt start. We start our session with the theory of the treatment and discuss the course manual that you are sent upon time of booking. The remaining time of the course will be spent carrying out the practical aspect of the course and learning the treatment hands on with demonstrations and your trainer guiding you through.

There is some home study to be completed prior to your practical session, this is sent out to you when you book your course.

Gel polish is one of the most popular nail treatments currently available. With results lasting much longer than nail varnish and the overall finish being much more refined, it’s no wonder most clients choose gel every time.
