Manicuring (Non-credit)

Short Term

Manicuring is the art of caring for the hands and feet. The 300-hour course instructs students on shaping nails, removing cuticles, giving a hand or foot massage, applying artificial nails, and art work. It also involves teaching the proper health, safety and sanitation procedures to avoid common infections. Students will be able to apply their new skills by working on clients in the clinic. After successfully completing the course, the students will be able to sit for the North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Art's exam to be a licensed Manicurist.


As part of the program, students develop skills during clinic hours. View the Manicuring Salon hours, services, and scheduling information. Manicuring program students complete 100 percent of the work and offer services at a reduced rate to employees and the public.
