Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 4 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 4 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 4 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can either use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Solo cards or PayPal account to pay for the online course. Our site uses the latest SSL encryption to ensure your safety. All payments are handled securely by PayPal.

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 2.5 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

Thank you for the amazing opportunity to be a nail technician! The course is very interesting, helpful and detailed. I have enjoyed every module and very very soon I'll have a certificate! Highly recommend!

I have really enjoyed doing the receptionist course online and I recommend anyone that wants to improve in whatever qualifications they wish to progress in to do it on New Skills Academy. It is very helpful and I have learnt a lot - My family members couldn’t believe how much I have progressed and they have actually said that they will probably do the courses online themselves. I will definitely finish the courses that I still have on here, and maybe do more courses in the future as I have learned a lot and I am willing to learn more as the resources you have on here are brilliant.

I was bought this Nail course as a birthday present and it has really inspired me as I have always had a passion for Nail design.

This course was well structured, clear, and easy to follow. It ran smoothly and I knew exactly how long I was expected to work on each module.

I learnt all about the business side to the salon as well as physical skills and it was easy to do the exams and get my certificate. I would thoroughly recommend this course or similar ones to other people as it was so flexible and I can now take my new skills straight into the working world.

Very interactive and quick to complete, highly recommended to anyone that is looking to further their knowledge. An excellent online course for CV’s and developing your skills. Fantastic for the money and worth taking time to complete with online help and notes to guide you through it.

New Skills Academy have recently won two high profile awards and after taking their online course you know the reason behind it with high quality course structure and accessibility.
All their courses have an excellent pass rate so it is suitable for everyone whether you are academic or not, which I find very good.

New Skills Academy is a great site to use for learning as it is easy to follow, the layout of the course work makes is very easy to understand and good to make notes from.

I am thoroughly enjoying doing my course and would definitely recommend this site to anyone who is looking to complete a course online.

Another good thing about doing a course on New Skills Academy is being able to apply for an NUS card as it gets you amazing deals on all sorts of shops and online stores that not a lot of sites would offer whilst completing a course online.
