Critical Turning Point in Cosmetology The Failure of the Entire US Disinfection protocols: The Politics of Disinfection

After sounding the alarm for nearly 20 years to cosmetology boards through testimony, lectures, MediNail Online Training and the book, Death By Pedicure, now for the first time, The City of Boston and Dudley Massachusetts Public Health Department and the Iowa Cosmetology State Boards has finally taken on the responsibility of mandating autoclaving for all nail salons in these respective service areas. This is the first national MediNail webinar specifically devoted to standardizing and upgrading all US salons to implement autoclave sterilization of all instrumentation for the US nail technician industry. This MediNail lecture series will dispel the notion “cold sterilization” or “simple disinfection” protocols are “safe” . The information will expose the” dirty secrets” of potential and actual health problems that cosmetology boards, cosmetology schools, federal institutional guidelines and the EPA have managed to collectively confound the public for decades. I will address 10 (ten) focused concerns on sterility with unique concepts, simple solutions and new options for the nail technicians to quickly adopt and ultimately improve the professional delivery of their services to further protect the public from salon infections. These MediNail sterility concepts are the most comprehensive and are based on CDC recommendations as well as those developed from 20 years of a niche podiatric medical practice.

The ACFAOM Certified Clinical Podiatric Medical Assistant (CCPMA) course is designed to provide the basic education for those who take it to become certified, and a review to those who are already certified. However, these modules are not designed to be a certification course for performing either x-rays or coding. Modules 4 and 10 include online exams. After all 10 modules are completed an internship in a podiatrist’s office must be completed for certification. After receiving information from the podiatrist concerning the completion of the Internship, the ACFAOM Clinical Podiatric Medical Assistant Certificate will be issued.

The Medical Nail Technician series includes access 10 modules and two assessments (exams). Once you've completed all 10 modules and 2 exams you can request your displayable MNT Certificate of Completion from MediNail Learning Center staff. Certification in the MNT requires an internship to be completed.
