“Career Prospects Are in Your Hands,” Say Employment Statistics
Employment statistics reveal growth in the nail technology sector that is being attributed to an increase in the number of available places on nail technician courses.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), graduates from nail technician courses held 78,000 jobs in 2006. Job growth of 28 percent is expected for these personal care professionals over the next four years until 2016.
When asked to comment, a spokesperson from NailTechncianSchools.Org said: “We welcome these statistics and can attest to the rise in interest surrounding the nail technology industry through our role as an information portal on nail technician courses.”
On the topic of the training path on a nail technician course, the spokesperson said, “Certification is not required for nail technicians; however, state licensure must be earned before a graduate of a nail technician course can begin work in the U.S. Licensure requirements differ according to the state, but generally include graduation from a program that has been approved by a state board of cosmetology. Additionally, candidates have to pass an exam, which may include a practical component and written test.”
NailTechnicianSchool.Org explained that the industry boom is due to nail technician courses widening their ambit and equipping nail technicians with more skills. The spokesperson said: “Traditionally, nail technician courses have focused on the care and upkeep of hands and feet. But increasingly, a nail technician course needs to focus on the marketing side of the profession.”
The spokesperson continued: “Nail technicians also sell products used during nail services directly to clients, earning commission on each sale. Therefore, a dynamic nail technician course needs to prepare professionals not just on the technical side of the role, but also on the client-facing nature and sales potential of life as a successful nail technician after graduation from a nail technician course.”
