Manicurist Day Program


Manicuring - Day

Simi Institute's Manicuring Certificate Program teaches the fundamentals of nail technology.  Students will take a series of courses to learn procedures for manicuring, pedicuring, nail tips, nail enhancements, gels, massage, paraffin wax, and advanced nail art.  A culminating state board class will prepare students for the passage of the written and practical California Cosmetology State Board Manicurist Licensure Exams.  All of our students are provided with a course schedule that allows them to efficiently complete all operations and hour requirements set forth by the California Board of Barbering and Cosmetology.  Our manicuring program can be completed in approximately three 8-week levels (three levels equals ONE cohort).  Simi Institute Offers TWO cohorts during the Spring 2018 semester.

Prerequisite:  Related Science 1 & 2

Simi Institute will run two cohorts during each semester.
