One of Georgia’s nicknames is the “Peach State”. As you’d expect this is because the orchards are known for producing exceptional fruit. The peach is also the official state fruit.

How To Get Your License in Georgia

In the US business community Georgia is ranked #1 for being the best place to do business. This makes it a great place to take your nail tech training. You can be assured that the administrative side of getting your license is well taken care of.

The first thing you need to do on the way to getting your license is to complete the necessary training either at school (525 hours), or through an apprenticeship (2,050 hours).

Once you have graduated from an accredited school you’ll need to successfully complete a practical and a written exam in order to get your license. Once you have your license you’ll need to get it renewed every two years. Renewal requires payment of a fee and completion of 5 hours of training.

There are plenty of nail tech jobs in GA, so once you have your license you won’t have much trouble getting hired. Even better, the beauty industry is predicted to grow nationwide for the next few years at least.
