Level 3 Nail Technician course

  • Updated 5 years ago
How do I get marked on the practical in Level 3 Nail Technician course? I have just passed Assignment 8 and I have done no practical work at all. Most courses supply a hand to practice on. I am guessing this one doesn't? If anyone else is on the course please message me

I am on the course. But I am doing only the theory. If you bought 12 lessons + 3 clinic days the college should contact you as you near to your theory part of the course. Unfortunately, I chose the cheaper option without the practical training and I am struggling to practice on my own without the professional who could show me for example how to put gel nail extensions correctly.

Yes I am having the same problem, I am looking into investing a Nail Trainer hand that you get from Essential nails (another at home course) it is expensive but so much better than the cheap ones you can buy because i dont see how you can apply nail extensions to those without damaging the hand. I really think that this should have been supplied with the course considering how expensive the course is. I am on my final with no practical experience so will only be qualified in theory.

Hello I'm on assignment 10 in theory but haven't had any practical experience! Didn't know there was a 3 clinic days addition to this course. How do I find out about this? Can anyone help?

I got mine after the 7th Assignment but had to request it via email as they didnt automatically send it through. Just to clarify with you that it is an acrylic set not gel and they send french nail tips. I am on the final but have not done any practical so make sure you get yourself a practice hand or have lots of friends willing to be practiced on! I will be glad to help if you need it. What assignment are you on?

Just a quick note for you ladies. I am eagerly waiting for my results on my final exam and have recieved an email from Stonebridge this morning to say they will not mark my last exam due to my course fee's still outstanding. I opted to pay monthly for the course due to financial circumstances and have 4 months left so will not be able to get my final result until then. If you have opted for the monthly payment I hope that this prepares you for the wait. I'm not very happy as this sets me back even further to coming off benefits and into work

I did the same and phoned up and paid the outstanding balance, i guess people could cancel the direct debit/standing order once they have the certificate and not pay, although its not the great when your paying monthly i do understand why its done.

Amber - Yes passed the course. How would you set out a waiting area? If you were waiting what would you expect from a buisness to provide for you? Basic answers are in the book but use your own experiences and expectations. Hope that helps x

I have just uploaded my assisgnment 3 which asks you to discuss a manicure or pedicure. I have assignment 4 and from looking at it assume the questions will be around the content of that module ie contra indications etc but will find out when the questions arrive. i was a tad confused on first looking at it.

I am also struggling with question 3 if anyone can give me a clue!

Many thanks in advance!

All the answers are in the booklets your given, you just have to read throw, I always go by how many points on offer by how in depth the answer should be.
I've noticed on here that their seems to be different courses with the same title on them, my assignment 1 had 9 questions, how many does yours have.

Hi Dee-ann,

I found some bits of the booklet a little confusing but since I put the message on her the text book that was recommended in the first assignment has arrived and that has helped tremendously. I decided the same about points indicating how in depth an answer was needed.

Assignment 1 for me had 12 questions and they merge the different questions into 1 topic, which is I think why people are all on different courses. I am doing the Nail Technician - Professional course.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Clare
