Classes & Workshops

NAIL CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Nail Tech Event of the Smokies

Nail techs can customize their experience to fit their budget with 1, 2, 3 or 4 days of education at the Smokies Nail Show!

*

Below is the schedule for our educational weekend & the hands-on Workshops are limited to max 24 ppl (or less), therefore high demand topics sell out fast.

*

Registration payment for these optional Workshops is made directly to each company & is not included with a show ticket.

*

FRIDAY: Extended Workshops
SATURDAY: Workshops & Early Check-in
SUNDAY: Nail Show + complimentary Event Day Classes
(look & learn or lecture)
MONDAY: Workshops

The Workshops

Certificates from these optional Workshops may meet the criteria for North Carolina CEU's providing they have the following printed on them:

1) course title & description
2) date conducted
3) address of location where course was conducted
4) continuing education hours earned

The licensee shall maintain records of attendance at a continuing education course & is responsible for providing proper documentation to the NC State Board of Cosmetology within the required time frame.

Consequently techs should verify in advance with their own State Board to verify IF these certificates will count towards CEU's, otherwise we cannot guarantee that they will be accepted.

Extended Workshops: Friday, July 8th, 2022

These Extended Workshops are held onsite at the Gatlinburg Convention Center & are sanctioned by The Event Management

These approved Workshops are offered to extend the show weekend & expand your educational experience. Workshops are not included with your show ticket; registration payment is made directly to each company

.

Any classes held offsite that are NOT listed here are piggybacking on our show & looking to make a quick buck off unsuspecting nail techs - please do not support this sneaky & unethical behavior as it harms all legit companies.
