It’s worth noting that Connecticut is the one location in the United States that currently doesn’t require nail technicians to be licensed. This means that there are no state certifications or license requirements. In fact, current state law says that nothing should prohibit a nail technician from being able to manicure fingernails, or pedicure toenails for cosmetic purposes. What’s more, state-overseen certification isn’t required for many other beauty procedures as well. Less red tape is always a nice surprise!
What You Can’t Do!
However, that being said, nail techs in Connecticut are at present not permitted to cut nail beds/corns/calluses or perform any type of medical treatments that involve either the foot or the ankle.
Although there are no licensing requirements for nail technicians in Connecticut, it is still a good idea to go through a thorough program. This will help you prepare for your career and give you all of the skills that you need in order to succeed.
These types of programs are offered at various cosmetology and nail technician schools in many locations throughout the state. Training centres have many different areas of study that mirror those offered in states that do require licenses.
There are many cosmetology and beauty schools throughout the state that design programs in a way that allows graduates to become eligible to sit for other state licensing examinations if they wish to do so.
