4 System Gel Course: Velocity Gel, Builder Gel, Liqui-Flow Gel & Gel Polish

This is a great all-round builder training course for teaching techniques for overlays and sculpting using the CRYSTAL CLAWZ range of Gels.

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 the Combination Gel Courses or on the individual Builder and Rubber Base Gel courses. 


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

Course Duration:  7 days (+ ½ day for optional Tip Application)

Your training will include the following:

  • Nail Anatomy & Physiology
  • Diseases and contra-indications
  • Professional Client Consultation
  • Salon hygiene
  • Workstation & Environment
  • Nail Preparation
  • Liqui-Flow Gel Application, (including reverse French) Maintenance & Removal
  • Builder Gel Application, (including reverse French) Maintenance & Removal
  • Velocity Gel Application, (including reverse moulding and reverse French) Maintenance & Removal
  • Gel Polish Application & Removal
  • Sculpting with forms using all three builder systems 


The course cost of R11,500 includes a full product kit detailed below, examination fee and certification (on passing exam).  Standard Tip Application is an optional add-on and costs R595.  FlexiPro Tip Application add-on will cost R750. 

If an LED lamp is not needed, the course cost will be reduced to R11,250, however you will need to bring your 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.

Initial course fee includes the examination.  Should you need to re-write your exam the 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.

Additional colours will be available to purchase at the training venue, however these are not required for the course and examination.
