This provides you, as the student, with the best training there is. Your Instructor will be available to you even after training to give advice, support and even secrets to help you excel in your career.

The Smart Start Course offers you an International qualification in Acrylic and Gel systems. For this course you will have to choose which system you would prefer to use.
