Just to update, I have applied online and sent my certificate through email. I had a response within 1hr to say all has been approved and im covered from today. All documents are in the post tonight for me too apparently x
I am about a week and a half away from officially launching my business. I haven't got my insurance yet, but I am about to apply for it this week. I have however rang up my insurers a while away (when I heard about this issue) and told them where I had trained and the qualification I had and they said it was fine!! Im using ABT Assosiated Beauty Therapists, with Zurich. I hope this helps. I will apply for mine today and see how I get on and I will let you know x
Hi Becky, I have just completed my Level 3 nail tech diploma with stonebridge (not with 3 days training) and I am horrified to learn I can't get insurance. I have been reading your posts as well as many many others and I'm now terrified I will have to start all over again somewhere. The 3 days was not availalbe when i started and they have since changed their website re the insurance! I have tried Abt and The Guild but both say I need the have had practical training. Can I ask if you did manage to get insurance or did you have to do other training? Thanks, Audrey.
Just to clarify to those who are suspecting the worse! I have just finished my home based training through Stonebridge College. I am provider of nail services for my friends and family whilst I am still mastering the skills.
