1 System Gel Course: Gel Polish

This is a great training course for teaching techniques for gel polish overlays.

This course is intended for new Technicians, or a refresher for those who have been away from the industry for some time. 

Nail Technicians who are already qualified in other systems are eligible for Conversion courses.  Please note you will be required to provide your Certificates as proof of completion of training.  Conversion courses will be of shorter duration and will exclude the theory section and concentrate on practical training only.

Tip Application is an optional extra on all Gel courses 


Our training will include both theory and hands on practical training to prepare you for starting up your business.

Course Duration:  1 day

Your training will include the following:

  • Nail Anatomy & Physiology
  • Diseases and contra-indications
  • Professional Client Consultation
  • Salon hygiene
  • Workstation & Environment
  • Nail Preparation
  • Gel Polish Application & Removal 


The course cost of R2,995 includes a full product kit detailed below, examination fee and certification (on passing exam).  Tip Application add-on will cost R595. 

If an LED lamp is not needed, the course cost will be reduced to R2,745.  If a lamp is not needed, you will need to bring your own lamp to the course venue. 


All Trainees will be required to complete a Theory and Practical Examination within 3 months of completing their training.  A full, detailed log will be required prior to the examination to show that a minimum of 100 hours practical work has been completed.

Should you need to re-write your exam a fee of R500 will be payable for each re-examination.

Certificates of Competence will be issued only after the successful completion of the examination.


All CRYSTAL CLAWZ courses include a complete training kit. This includes full salon size products, tools, implements, files and a Training Manual.

We do not fill your kit with sample size products.  The product supplied will be more than enough to complete your course and examination, while still having product left over to use on clients.  There will be no need to purchase any additional products to complete your training; however, if you do not wish to purchase an LED lamp, you must bring your own to the training course.
