Some insurance companies recognise some certificates/qualifications some dont.It really is a case of checking it out with individual insurance companies,pref before doing the training or it can prove a complete waste of money.Hth:hug:

Clients don't know the first thing about nail 'credentials' in the main.

I'm sure your United Beauty Certificate is recognised ! What clients do appreciate is seeing your insurance certificate displayed on the wall as well as your training certificates.

That is because insurance companies really don't care about you or yur credentials either.

Insurance is a 'risk' game. There have been so few that have ever sued a nail technician for anything that Ins. companies feel it is worth the risk to ensure anyone. It's all a game. Until a few nail technicians start getting successfully sued, that is. then things will change.
