Advanced Manicurist Program

Our Advanced Manicurist Program aims to provide our students with the hands-on training, practical experience and support it takes to become a skilled, professional Manicurist.

You Can Get the Skills to Be a Professional Manicurist in as little as 10 Weeks*

The 300 hour Advanced Manicurist Program was created for students who are specifically interested in the nail care area of cosmetology. Raphael’s School of Beauty has been open for over 50 years, so we bring decades of experience to the classroom.

During the Advanced Manicurist Program, you’ll be introduced to nail structure and manicuring techniques along with advanced training in artificial nail application, maintenance nail wrapping and nail tips.
