It’s never too late to take a nail tech course!

At 47 years of age I decided it was time to follow my dream and go back to school to become a Nail Technician.  I wanted to open my own home based business so I could be home for my youngest daughter and also to enjoy life and work.

In September of 2014 I decided to enroll in class at Tru Spa Institute of Aesthetics in Nanaimo, BC in the Advanced Nail Technician Course.  This is a three month intense learning program focusing on theory and real life practical experience in a relaxed Spa setting. With the training and experience I received, I passed the licensing exam for the BC Beauty Council with confidence and ease.

Thanks to Tru Spa Institute I now own my own business “The Nanoose Nail Den” in Nanoose Bay, BC and I am living the life I wanted to live when I moved here to Vancouver Island.  I LOVE my job and new career!!!!!!  Thank you to all the staff at Tru Spa for helping me reach my dream!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And I also want to thank for your help post graduation in business advice etc.

An exciting new career in esthetics!

I am in the Complete Aesthetics Technician program! I initially began the course thinking only of a career but what I have discovered is a future of intrinsic rewards I had not anticipated. School itself is alot of fun and rewarding and the staff/clients/classmates make it the place I look to going to each day!
