Advanced Nail Technician (ANT®) – 6th Ed. – revised 2022.

The ANT Certification Program is for the salon-based nail technician seeking a more successful and challenging career. It is ten modules of information you’ll use to safely work with clients who have special health needs. Those clients with diabetes, peripheral artery disease, heart conditions and other chronic illnesses need you to take this program. They cannot risk pedicures with less than excellent infection control and use of appropriate safety guidelines. This course teaches you how to work safely with them.

You will learn to implement obvious aseptic techniques. These techniques will immediately show your clients your quality of work is far beyond that of the typical “nail shop.” Upon receiving your certification, you will have the knowledge and tools you need to provide safe, careful services for all your clients.

Topics covered include:

  • Anatomy review of the nail plate
  • Diseases and disorders seen by the working nail tech
  • Upgrading your infection control practices
  • Safe working practices for salon workers
  • Pedicures and precautions for at-risk clients
  • Product knowledge and using CBD in the salon
  • Safe Salon® Concepts
  • Client education and creating referral relationships with physicians
  • How to market a Safe Salon® and create success
  • How to set yourself apart from the ordinary, and so much more

This program provides a pathway to a higher level of success by setting you apart from the ordinary nail salons found everywhere. It brings your   information to a noticeably higher level while additionally providing supportive marketing and networking techniques for your success.


This Edition includes the Safe Salon® Concepts Certification, an additional marketing advantage to help you grow your business. To obtain this additional Certificate, see Module 7 and take the 25-question quiz.

The ANT Certification is a prerequisite to taking the Wellness Nail Technician Program and the NCA Medical Nail Tech (MNT) Internship. No exceptions.

I learned so much through these courses! A lot of nail techs are uniformed about disinfecting/sterilizing properly! That was one of the points I so enjoyed learning about in these modules. All this information is so important to know in this industry. Thank you NailCare Academy!

You are most welcome, Jill! We are so happy you enjoyed your advanced training.

I received this course through the Footnanny Rescue program.  All nail techs should take this course. Very helpful information.

Dominique, it's our pleasure to know our Footnanny Sholarship is appreciated! We wish you great success.

I found this program after not being able to complete a different one. I would like to say this education is something I feel should be taught from day 1 in school.

Rochelle, we are so happy you transferred in to Nailcare Academy. The reason we wrote these programs is because the various states only require minimum standards - we want our students to work at much higher levels of learning, Very best wished in your career!

This was so much knowledge for me, an taught me steps to make my job easier.

We are so pleased you're benefitting from your training, Wendi!

It is a very involved course. Lots of new information. I have already been using some practices with my diabetic and chronic illness clients on non-soaking pedicures. It was hard to change their wants, because they all want to put their feet in water. But after educating my clients, they are thrilled to still come in and get a pedicure.

Deborah, you are doing things exactly right! Standing by your training will ultimately make those clients so happy with you.

Catherine, it was so nice to meet you at Foot Forward. Glad you could join us at NA!

I did the ANT online. It's a great course! So much information and help always available to you. Janet has a wealth of knowledge and is eager to share so YOU can be successful.

Then the class is being hosted at Centre for Beauty and CJ Murray. She hosts great classes to help the nail technician with pedicures. She too has so much knowledge to share. She carries amazing products to help your pedicure clients.

Thank you, Ramona, for your kind words. We are so pleased you enjoyed your experience with Nailcare Academy...and we are looking forward to this workshop very much!

As an instructor this will benefit my students in deciding their future career as Cosmetologist and/or Nail Techs. It will prepare them for their state license with a better understanding of the industry and advancement of their license.

We are so glad your students have you, Sondra!
