Want to attend a training seminar without going to a show? Interested in meeting other nail techs who are passionate about their work? Then check out the High Road to Education (HRTE), a traveling two-day seminar that aims to teach nail techs good overall techniques and procedures.

The events feature educators from different companies coming together to share and teach the craft of nail services, without being particular to any specific products. Eight seminars have been completed, and founder Tammy Warner says the feedback has been great. “It’s absolutely amazing,” she says, “We’re seeing lots of support. Even after months have passed we’ll get testimonials from techs about how great the class was and that they’re looking forward to the next one.”

Warner started the HRTE because she was tired of paying high class fees for a product-specific class and learning about just that product. She wanted to offer something different that would include all aspects of the business.

The first class was held in March 2008, in Buffalo, N.Y., and since then, the HRTE has been to Somerset, N.J.; Long Island, N.Y.; West Palm Beach, Fla.; Hebron, Ky.; Scottsdale, Ariz.; and San Jose, Calif.; with upcoming classes scheduled for Rosemont, Ill. (April 26-27) and Nashville, Tenn. (May 17-18).

Warner says, “I’d like to be able to offer online courses soon, and eventually expand to the cosmetology side as well. And we have some international educators teaching, so we might schedule some international workshops in the future.”
