NSI Opens First U.S. Training Academy

<p>The Beauty Point Academy celebrated the grand opening of NSI Academy in December at its facility in San Antonio, Texas. Among those in attendance were The Beauty Point Academy owner Mrs. Cantu and her daughter Gracie King.</p>

Nail Systems International has partnered with The Beauty Point Academy, a cosmetology school in San Antonio, Texas, to offer the first-ever NSI-approved training program in the U.S. The Beauty Point Academy will offer training courses and curriculum exclusively developed by top NSI educators as part of its nail technician training program. Students may attend NSI Academy at The Beauty Point Academy as part of their state-required training. NSI educator Gracie King is implementing a curriculum that includes six certificates of completion in each NSI training category. Every student completing all categories will receive a special diploma from NSI. For licensed technicians, NSI Academy offers certificate courses in advanced techniques.

“NSI is honored to have Gracie King as an educator and the first to partner with the company to open an NSI Academy,” says NSI director of sales and education Malinda Haggerty. “A seasoned nail technician, she has excelled in every area as an NSI educator, leaving her mark on our international training by winning top awards. Without her insight into the curriculum and the NSI school program, we could not have developed such a first-class nail program that can stand alone as the NSI Academy.”
