About the event
Angels On Board Academy Manicure and Pedicure training course is accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK’s leading professional beauty trade body.
The course covers the consultation, contra-indications, technique and aftercare needed to perform a manicure and pedicure treatment and is written following the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for beauty, nails and holistic therapy treatments. In addition to the practical training, there is an online course to be completed in your own time (we request you do this BEFORE the practical training). The practical module and examination will be conducted by Angels On Board Academy on the above course dates. On completion of the course, successful students will receive GTi certificates in Manicures and Pedicures.
Who is the course for?
Stewardesses, deckhands, massage therapists, hairdressers, villa or hotel staff… the list goes on. Being able to do manis and pedis is a great skill if you’re working in tourist locations; if you’re looking to join the superyacht industry; if you want to work in a spa or salon, or if you’re looking to be self-employed and work from home doing hours that suit you.
