How it works

Upon enrollment in a Unit and you will be allocated an Educator that is closest to you.  Your educator will then make contact with you to arrange a time to commence your first class.  You can commence this course whenever you are ready and have paid your deposit and Unit Fee.

In your class you will be shown the practical component of the Unit, for example, if you are starting Unit 1 - your Educator will demonstrate how to perform a Spa Manicure & Pedicure and then allow you time to practice this while your educator is there to watch and guide you.  You will then be required to complete a set amount of 'Homework/Practice' Treatments and will be required to collect evidence of your treatments with both photo's and client consultation forms.  Once you have completed your homework you then make contact with your Educator to arrange a time for your next class.  Therefore you also control how fast or slow you complete your course, depending on how long it takes you to get through your homework tasks.


Included in the cost of this course is a Professional Product Kit relevant to the Unit you are enrolled in and a Text Book valued at $135 along with access to all the curriculum.  You will receive a student discount code for the VIVid Nails Store that is valid for 3 months from your course commencement date which will allow you to purchase Gel Products & Accessories at a discounted price as VIVid Nails is also the exclusive Importer for Akzentz Gels in Australia & New Zealand.  Upon successful completion of the course you will be presented with a Certificate of Achievement signed by Viv Simmonds - Principal/Director of VIVid Nails Academy.
