Maintain and Finish Nail Overlays using an Electric File (E-File)

The e-file is a specialist course which is the next step for those already qualified in acrylic or hard gel nail enhancements. There are so many positive uses for the e-file within a nail service treatment when you train with professionals that are qualified and experienced. 

It greatly reduces the manual time with files which can lead to repetitive strain or tennis elbow.  However, there are many people offering it, having learned from youtube, bought an efile off the internet and carrying it out incorrectly!

Please take the time to train with us, the experts and ensure your client safety and comfort at all times. This recognised SQA qualification is at an SVQ Level 3 level which is a recognised qualification unlike some other courses by independent bodies. 

This means it is more in depth, with a higher level of knowledge and understanding making you a far superior nail technician, this will make you stand out from the crowd.  This means you need to have a previous qualification and experience in acrylic or gel to attend.  During this course you will complete the following:

  1. Maintain safe and effective methods of working when maintaining and finishing nail overlays using electric files.
