Manicure 400 Hours Program

Get the skills to be a Manicurist Professional in 2.5 Months

An exciting career is right at your fingertips. And the fingers of millions of others! Whether it is a trendy salon, a tranquil spa or somewhere in between, opportunities for nail professionals continue to flourish.

By enrolling in the Manicure Program, you’ll learn both classic and creative techniques in nail design. The importance of having clean nails and hands has always been a significant part of our culture. As a result, nail care is one of the fastest-growing services requested in salons.

Manicure is more than a manicure or pedicure. Nail technology is the art and science of professional nails. You’ll learn anatomy, physiology and pathology of nails and skin; nail beauty techniques; and professional nail products and their uses.

In as little as one year, you can graduate from International College of Cosmetology and obtain your license. Once you have your license, many exciting career opportunities could potentially be open to you!

At completion, students will receive a Certificate and will be certified to take the California State Board Examination for Cosmetology. Upon successful completion of the exam, you will receive a license to practice Cosmetology in the State of California.

The course length is divided into both technical classroom instruction in the science of nail technology and applied effort for practical operations. You will receive traditional classroom training; however, the majority of training is learned through real life experience with clients. This format provides an exceptional learning experience that prepares students with a solid background of practical hands-on training directly related to the nail industry.
