NAIL CLASSES & WORKSHOPS

Nail Tech Event of the Smokies

Nail techs can customize their experience to fit their budget by adding 1, 2 or 3 days of Nail Classes & Workshops at the Smokies Nail Show!

*

Registration payment for these optional Workshops is made directly to each company & is not included with 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 ask 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 7th, 2023

These Extended Workshops are held onsite at the Gatlinburg Convention Center & are offered to extend the show weekend by expanding your educational experience.

*

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 legitimate companies.
