Most nail technician programs cannot be completed entirely online because hands-on work to demonstrate skills is an important part of the program, notes Study.com. One online program is through the Academy of Nail Design. Some nail tech programs, such as the one offered at Moraine Park Technical College, may also offer blended learning, which is a combination of online coursework and on-campus training.
The Academy of Nail Design offers an online nail technician program that combines coursework modules and practical interactive scenarios so students can learn how to interact in real-life situations. Course modules include topics such as fiberglass enhancements, manicures and spa manicures and UV gel enhancements.
