Manicuring Certificate

Fort Scott Community College offers a certificate in Manicuring at both our Fort Scott and Pittsburg Cosmetology locations. Through this program, students will learn a variety of manicuring procedures, hand and arm massage techniques, and proper sterilization and sanitation.

The manicuring certificate consists of 350 hours of instruction and work; this number may vary depending on the state in which you want to become licensed. Classes, which begin in March, June, and September, meet eight hours per day, five days per week.

This program can be completed along with cosmetology courses for a dual certificate or can be taken as a stand-alone program to become a nail technician.
