  1. Hi, I am new on the site. I have been studying for a certificate in education to enable me to teach nails in college and hopefully get a visa for oz eventually too. I have family there who will sponsor me but I'm not sure if the cert ed is enough, it is an under graduate qualification and I am very expeirenced in what I do. I have been told that I should train in something else too so that I appeal more to tafe, however I feel that I am better teaching what I know and love. I hope to apply for a visa as soon as I finish the course if possible. Can any teachers, nail techs or Tafe employees offer any advice please? I am 33, single with no children. I would even be interested in working in a salon at first but I know that I can't get a visa ad a nail tech even though I have won many competitions and have a good, experienced reputation. (Sorry for the modesty, put that in just incase any employers are reading!)

    any nail techs?

    Hi Was just wondering if any of you are nail technicians in the process of moving or have been lucky enough to get to Oz... Just a couple of Q's - are able to take are tools i.e. liquids etc with us or is it best to get over there.... I have only just really started out in this field, so fortunately I don't have loads of stuff to take... The obvious Q is that do we need to retake any courses etc, to prove our quals... Thanks K

    Nail technician advise????????

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help! We have just got our 175 visa, on Hubby's job (accountant). Many years ago (pre-kids) I trained as a fibre glass nail technician and ran my own business for 2 years. I am considering what I can do when we get to OZ and hubby is out at work and the kids at school. I would like to do a course to get myself up to date in gel and acrylic whilst we are waiting to sell the house. I have been on the internet doing abit of research and have noticed that there are a wide variety of courses available (some that can be done in a week!) I was wondering though to get a job in an Oz salon will I need to do a full NVQ level 2 or will one of the smaller nail tech courses be suffice???? Any help and advise will be great! Thanks Melanie X
  4. Hi all, Just thought I would share my good news with you all. I passed my nail technician course today. I did not need to do this to get us into Australia, but decided to do the course so I would have a skill of my own once we get to OZ and Tam is out at work and the girls are at school. I feel I can breathe again now, so glad that is over!!! Take care. Andi.xx

    Nail Extensions

    We are hoping to move to the Perth area next year. Hubby a brickie but I fancy taking a course in the UK to do nails. Anyone know if this is popular in Oz? Seems to be a new salon opening every month here in York.
  6. Hi I have just qualified as a nail technician - and i am looking for volunteers for me to practice on from February (once the kids have gone to school). If you are interested please PM me. Cheers Deb x
