Many schools, including the Academy of Nail Design, MediNail Learning Center and Open Study College, offer nail technician classes online. However, beauty training requires in-class experience, so a nail technician certificate cannot be fully completed online.
The Academy of Nail Design trains nail technicians all over the world and has certification from the Canadian Board of Health Care Practitioners, according to Nail Technician Schools. Another top school is MediNail Learning Center, which offers an online program that helps technicians learn advanced nail techniques. For busy students, Open Study College has a program where students can work at their own pace. This program teaches advanced nail techniques as well as learning professional skills, customer service, and laws and regulations.
