This course provides students with the practical skill, professional knowledge and experience using an E-file.

E-files (Electronic) can be used on Acrylic OR Gel systems in the following situations, removing non-living tissue, refining the shape of an overlay, preparing nails for maintenance.  An e-file can quickly de-baulk a nail, reduce length and cut a new smile line.  They can also be used for cleaning under the free edge of an artificial nail, buffing an overlay to a shine.  When using as part of a pedicure, hard skin can be removed with specifically designed attachments.  Removal of gels an e-file can be used to etch the surface of the gel before removal process.

No written exams are required as you are assessed by continual observation throughout the day, to ensure that you have all the knowledge that you will need. A full certificate is awarded on completion of the course and case studies.
