Manicurist Certificate Program


Manicurist Certificate Program

Simi Institute's Manicurist 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 Manicurist Certificate Program can be completed in approximately three levels.  Students must complete all practical operations and at least 400 course hours for graduation.

Course Fee:  $1,000 per level

Note: We currently do not offer an evening/weekend Manicurist Certificate Program.
