I really liked the way she doesn't actually say how much it costs in total!

Is there anything people don't sell on Ebay :o?!! Still, the response must have been overwhelming because once one course listing was set up at £30, the next one went on at a starting price of 0.01p.....oooooh I just have to bid for that....bargain ;)! On second thoughts, I think I'll save my penny and hold out for her line dancing tee-shirt :pukeon:

I asked the question and here is the reply:

HI THERE.
CTA STANDS FOR CRAFT TRAINER AWARD WHICH IS THE EQUIVALANT TO 730 1+2 OF THE CITY & GUILD WHICH MEANS I AM QUALIFIED TO TEACH. THE CERTIFICATE YOU WILL RECEIVE WILL BE IN YOUR NAME AND STATE THAT YOU ARE A BEGINNER THIS WILL GIVE YOU ALL THE BASIC KNOWLEDGE TO OBTAIN INSURANCE (THAT'S HOW I STARTED MANY MOONS AGO), MANY TRAINING CENTRES OFF YOU GLAMOROUS NAMES AND TITLES BUT ONCE YOU KNOW THE BASICS YOU CAN DO WHAT THE CALL ADD ON COURSES (WITH ANYONE) TO EXTEND YOUR KNOWLEDGE. (IE AIRBRUSHING, SCULPTING, ETC) THE COURSE WILL COVER QUITE A LOT. 1. PREPARATION, THE NAIL, ANATOMY OF THE NAIL, STRUCTURE, PUROPSE, DISORDERS, CONTRAINDICATIONS, NAIL TYPES (NATURAL) +( ENHANCERS).MANICURE, PREP OF ENHANCER, PREP OF NAIL, APPLICATION (IN WHICH EVER METHOD YOU CHOOSE) GEL, ACRYLIC, SILK WRAP, FIBREGLASS. EVEN THOUGH IT IS CALLED A BASIC COURSE YOU WILL LEARN ENOUGH TO GET YOU THROUGH A DIPLOMA.
I HOPE THIS HELPS.

i HAVE ABOUT 30 STUDENTS AT THE MOMENT

Can you tell me what CTA stands for - would this get me a recognised certificate to get insurance - what brand products are included.

I asked the question and here is the reply:
Good on Fiona for asking! I think it's more likely to stand for Can't Teach Anything![/b]

I sort of asked the question again as she didnt answer the product question. I also looked up CTA on Google and found their site - I think it is University of York - CTA is a teaching qualification but there is no information as to what nail technology the lady has - all it means is that she has a teaching qualification.

Here is second response:

Hi there,
I use a variety of products in the training.
If you are using GEL i would ask you to use STARNAILS.
If you are using Acrylic I would ask you to use Michelle Porter.
If you are using Fiber Or Silk with resin i would suggest Michelle porter or idb. I really depends on if you want one 2 one training or a group or Distance with a final exam. There are so many different ways of doing the course and prices vary but most of my students ask me to come over and do a one day practical after you have sent in the module for application to ensure correct methods are carried out.
Where abouts do you live? and what method of application are you interested in?
Thank you
Sarah
