Global Meticulous Manicurist Pedicure Certification Course

When I started in the beauty industry I didn’t understand the importance of nail care during a pedicure. At least I thought I didn’t. I wanted to create beautiful nails and pay my bills. As I completed pedicure services for my clients they would remark statements like, “I’ve never had anyone clean my toenail like this.” I thought that was the strangest thing since a pedicure is supposed to be the trimming, shaping, cleaning, and beautifying the nails on the feet. I’ve come a very long way from the beginning days of sitting on the floor with a portable foot bath, performing services for clients who sat in the most uncomfortable client chairs ever made. But it seems I am still getting the same statements from client after client, even after 26 years in the nail industry.  

I panicked the day my neurologist told me I needed to retire from the career that provided everything I have in this world. And thought if I could only teach other nail technicians all the efficient and effective skills I have learned, I could at least live vicariously through them. And clients all over would get the care they sought. 

When clients started traveling from all over the United States to see me for pedicure services, I knew I had to develop training to share. I worked on the structure, content, and web design for 18 months. I wanted to make sure the training was easily accessible, easy to learn from anywhere, and easily applied through the practical application by the nail technician.   

My training is different from any you will find because it is from real-life experience and a nail technician who still works in the salon taking clients. Not because I need to work, but because people are seeking help and can’t find it. 

Below you will find a breakdown of the lessons or individual courses that are in included in this Certification Course. Safe specialty nail care within the scope of a nail technician license. By someone trusted by millions of people worldwide to educate the industry who are looking for you!

I share the exact same steps I have taken over my 27-year career. To get me where I am today, making over 100k a year providing service in the salon. This course pack consists of 16+ modules and over 22 hours of education. This salon focused training can help you develop a productive career strategy. As a result, you will be able to establish a strong, healthy, business relationship with loyal clientele.  This course is packed full of exclusive content and trade secrets you won’t find anywhere else.

I am looking forward to referring clients to you, the newest member of the Global Meticulous Manicurist Network!

Customers reviews

I have to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am a certified clinical aesthetician and was never formally trained to do pedicures. I was blessed to find you. You helped me learn the important steps and really helped my confidence and encouraged my practice! Thank you so much!
Meranda Lajeunesse
I've learned almost everything I know about pedicures from you. You're one of the main reasons I became a nail tech. My clients say their feet feel fantastic and so much more comfortable after I've given them a pedicure. I really appreciate all the information and guidance you provide. Thank You.
Jacqueline Swanepoel
Your teaching style is so easy to understand and informative. I have been watching and learning from the Meticulous Manicurist for quite some time. I am ready to step out and practice the correct way to care for my and my husband's feet. I have been doing pedi's on many of my elder relatives with much relief for them. I only wish I had your video tools to guide me properly back then. Thanks for for all you do, your caring, and willingness to share.
