Who is doing your Training?
If you were an Athlete and you wanted to compete at the highest level, who would you want training you? An Amateur or Professional?
If you wanted to be a world-class chef, who would you want as your mentor? An Expert who owns his own 5 Star Restaurant or someone who has only recently started started playing around in the kitchen?
The student always becomes like the teacher – so you have to ask the question, “Does my trainer really know what she is doing?” If your Nail Trainer isn’t a Professional, the very best at what she does, do you really want her training you?
One of the things that makes Magnetic stand out as South Africa’s leading Nail Academy is the fact that our Trainers have to be re-certified every year.
To give you the very best in Nail Training, our Trainers must, on an annual basis, learn new techniques, write exams and upgrade their skills – both as Nail Tech’s and Nail Trainers. If they don’t, then they can’t train for Magnetic.
Our Trainers must keep Improving
On the 6th of February I spent two weeks in Holland upgrading my skills and I also attended the “TRAIN THE TRAINER RE-CERTIFICATION” program for 4 days at Magnetic Nail Design Head Office in Soesterberg Holland. This is the 18th time I have been trained in Holland, most of my training has been with European Master Trainers.
I was privileged to train with an incredibly talented Nail Artist and Trainer – Jose De Vroed. She has been in the industry for over 20 years and was trained by Pepyn Borrel at The Pepyn Borrel Academy. When Pepyn moved over to Magnetic’s Head Office. Jose followed and became an International Master Trainer with Magnetic.
I also trained with Natalia Gritsenko who is also an International Master Trainer for Magnetic Ukraine, Russia and all former Soviet Union countries. We brought Natalia to South Africa in 2015 Natalia and she was amazing! Natalia travels around the world to train Magnetic girls and she head’s up Magnetic’s Professional Trade shows in Ireland, UK, Greece and Italy just to name some of the regions.
Leaps and bound ahead of other Nail Schools
Not only has this re-certification course allowed me to become a better Nail Tech and Trainer – it also given Magnetic Nail Academy South Africa the means to train techniques and skills that no one else in South Africa can. This new Train the Trainer program has put `Magnetic ahead in the industry as we will now have the latest and most Advanced Nail Training for Basic level students in South Africa. There is no one else in South Africa that trains new students like we do.
In this new training syllabus, we teach the classic structure of the nails – which we all know and have seen in the past. We then teach Salon Shape nails and then move onto teaching the latest Modern structure nail which is the latest technique for advanced Nail Tech’s. We introduce this technique in such a way new students will grasp Advanced Techniques quicker and easier.
Some of the advanced techniques we now teach new students are form and sculpting with level 1 pinching. We also teach form supports – in other words, using forms which then allows students to build Modern shape square nails that look perfect and require less filling. This means your products last longer and less wastage occurs. You get more sets of nails from your products and your profit margins increase.
We teach Classic French, Reverse French Techniques when Sculpting with pinching and Baby Boom Ombre faded nails which are extremely natural. These are the latest European Trends in nail design for both Acrylic and Gel.
We have added Seal & Protect training as well as Gel polish training to our entry level classes. This means we offer more natural nail care training than ever before in our Classes. This is an added benefit for your business as it allows a new Nail Tech to offer even more services to their client.
Magnetic’s new nail training techniques guarantee that you will be ahead in the industry when it come to building nails. This will also give you a step towards Level 2 Nail techniques when building Stiletto, Modern Almond, Pipe, Ballerina, Grace in Extreme Nail Design shapes.
