Nail technicians work exclusively on nails and provide manicures, pedicures, acrylic nails & fills, nail wraps and gel nails to clients. Nail technicians usually work in clean, pleasant surroundings with good lighting and ventilation.
Good health and stamina are important; prolonged exposure to some nail chemicals may cause irritation, so protective clothing, such as plastic gloves or aprons, may be worn. Students will learn the why and how of the many services they will perform, which will give the students the experience and confidence to succeed!
The State of Utah requires a theory and practical exam for licensure. Students completing both the BATC nail technician competencies and 300 hours of training will be qualified to take the exams.
Class dates and times are published in the Food & Personal Services section of the Short-Term Class Schedule.
No assessment required prior to enrollment.

In recent years there has been increasing interest from the public in the care, health, and attractiveness of skin and nails. Continuing growth in the number of nail salons and full-service day spas will generate numerous job openings for manicurists, pedicurists, and skin care specialists.
