EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION

TONi offers the most thorough training available in the nail enhancement field.  All classes were created by Ellen Flood, who is an Award Winning Nail Technician, Competition Nail Judge & Director, International Educator, AEFM Educator, and guest speaker.

EDUCATION FOCUS

Is on knowledge and skills that surpass basic product application classes and this training is exceptional since we limit all classes to 4–8 students. Therefore we encourage early registration.

OUR MISSION

Is to raise the nail technician’s standard through education, product and services.  This demands constant development of the most up-to-date and informative classes and these are delivered in professional classrooms at our new location. Classes will consist of classroom lectures including in-depth theory, demonstrations for services and products, and hands on practical training, and in some cases guest educators will be invited to share their knowledge and skills.  TONi’s classes are designed to ensure your success. TONi is the ideal place to start your training or, in many cases, a source for fine-tuning your skills and learning new techniques. We can help with your “everyday” questions as well as provide in-depth practical training. It’s about taking time with every Technician and that, essentially, is the TONi difference.

ABOUT OUR CLASSES

All classes at The Ontario Nail Institute have been pre-screened with the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities as single skilled, non-vocational certificate programs. Our courses include applicable kits, classroom materials and examinations. Please click on any of the links below for descriptions and course length or click here for our downloadable education booklet.  There will be a link to our current calendar on each page. Advanced Workshops Please note: Advanced classes (except for refreshment) are for trained nail technicians only who are looking to advance in their profession. Classes are non-product related and will not cover any basic nail technology techniques.
