Accredited Acrylic Nail Courses Online

Our acrylic nail courses are suitable for beginners, and you will be given everything you need to get started. This includes a beauty kit, so you have all the professional gear, including professional-grade products, tools and equipment. You can feel more confident in your assessments knowing that you have what is required, and you can wow your clients too!

Why Take an Acrylic Nail Course?

An acrylic nail course can open up a whole new career for you. Perhaps you want a job where you can work it around your other commitments, or you want a role where you can give others a confidence boost and make them feel great about themselves.

With beautiful looking nails, you can add that touch of glamour and elegance with long-lasting results. Once your clients have seen how you can transform their nails, you can build up repeat clients.

Many clients desire beautiful long nails, yet it is hard to achieve them with their natural nails. Often, nails can chip, split and crack as they get longer, which could leave clients seeking an alternative. With our acrylic nail extension course, you will learn how to create beautiful long nails that are hard-wearing.

Best of all, you can take our acrylic nail courses online. You can study from anywhere in Australia and New Zealand and become accredited. With an online acrylic nail course or any other of our nail technician courses, you can work to your schedule, and with Bela Beauty College, there is never any pressure or deadlines.

Everyone at Bela I have spoken to has made it easy for me to complete what I have needed and support me in growing my business.

I plan to continue to grow my little business and eventually add more services on when I have more time and the kiddies are older.

I did my Beauty Therapy certificate over 10 years ago but never used it. Years later I did my eyelash extension course with Jessica from Bela and it inspired me to follow my dreams and start my own business as a lash and brow artist. 

I have completed all of their eyelash courses and brow certificates and now own a busy home salon and sell my own brand of beauty products.

Lash extensions are quite difficult to pick up and learn but the Bela team made it super easy by providing lots of feedback and support. Through the courses I have been able to open my own salon.

I highly recommend the online Bela courses – it is super enjoyable and there is great reward!
