Total Hours Required 600
The state board requires a practice of 525 hours per student for the nail technician program. Atlanta Beauty and Barber Academy has increased our hours to 600 in total. We have made this increase in order to allow the students to have the extra hands on practice to learn nail art & design as well as any new nail techniques which may have arisen during that period of time. We are also Nationally Accredited, so we have made the changes to accommodate the students in the event that they wish to transfer their hours to another state.
