“Best decision I ever made! If you’re looking to start your extraordinary career in the cosmetology industry, visit World Class Academy of Beauty Careers!” – Rosemita P.
Our nail technology course meets the Florida state standard for certification while offering students a space to explore their creativity and talents through manicuring, pedicuring, nail enhancements (acrylics and gel), and nail art. As you learn and practice each of these techniques, our instructors emphasize sanitation and safety, so you’re prepared to confidently offer services to the public.
We strive to offer every educational opportunity possible for our students, but we also ask that each of our students puts in the hard work necessary to succeed in the competitive beauty industry. Our goal is to cater to your passion for nail care while helping you build the knowledge and skills necessary to perfect your craft.
Our nail tech program blends both theory and practice through a variety of teaching styles, including lectures, observation, written assignments, and educational games.
Our student salon is where you’ll have a chance to practice your new skills in a real-world setting with the guidance and supervision of our licensed instructors. The student salon welcomes clients in the Tallahassee area, and all services are performed by students under instructor supervision.

If you know that you want to focus only on nail care, you can fast-track your education with our nail tech program. At our school, you’ll immediately feel like part of the family—that’s because World Class Academy of Beauty Careers is a family-run school where owner Renae and her daughters work to create an intimate learning environment where one-on-one teaching is possible. Our instructors have more than 30 years of industry experience, and we’re constantly staying in tune with beauty industry trends by attending industry competitions and bringing students to beauty shows.
Our goal is to prepare each of our students for success in the beauty industry. We’re here to ignite your passion and guide you to the knowledge you need to level up your talent for nail care.
The nail tech course consists of 240 hours of curriculum and training, which may be completed on a part-time or full-time schedule. If you attend part-time, you can expect to complete your training in as little as 10 weeks. The full-time program can be completed in as little as 6 weeks. Both programs take place on a daytime schedule and offer the same curriculum with the same tuition and fees.
Because the nail technology course is a shorter, more focused program, it is more affordable than other programs like cosmetology and barbering. However, you may still seek assistance in funding your education through financial aid, available to those who qualify. Filling out your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) is the first step toward attaining financial aid in the form of grants, loans, or scholarships. Our financial aid administrators can help you better understand your options for paying for your education—don’t let financial hurdles hold you back from pursuing your goals!
Tuition is $3,467.06, which includes the cost of your textbooks and kit. There is also an enrollment fee of $150.00.
World Class Academy of Beauty Careers is open Tuesday through Saturday and some evenings. Your exact schedule will depend on whether you attend the nail tech program on a part-time or full-time basis. All nail technology courses are held during the daytime.
Classes begin on the first Tuesday of each month, so you can enroll any time of year. Class start dates for 2022 are:
Prospective students must be at least 16 years of age and have a high school diploma or GED to apply for the nail tech course. Transfer credits may be accepted and are assessed on a case-by-case basis.

After you become licensed, you may practice as a nail tech at a salon or spa, or you might open a salon of your own. We emphasize business education as part of our programs, so you can have a better understanding of the salon industry and what it takes to succeed as a business owner.
