Manicures & Pedicures Course

Manicure & Pedicure ABT Approved Course in Essex & London

Our Manicure and Pedicure Course covers nail care and massage of the hands and feet.

This course covers both subjects, in a quiet and pleasant learning environment with small groups of up to four students in order to give maximum attention. Here at the AATT we believe that tuition for this course needs to be two days, as anything less than this will reduce the quality of teaching and learning. Our tutors have years of experience coming from main stream, third level education, with exemplary standards of planning and an emphasis on health and safety, risk assessment and ensuring the safety of our students at all times.
