The goal of MLC is to provide comprehensive, practical and interesting information  that will enhance understanding and the performance of safe care for nail professionals while expanding their success. The following courses are currently available on this site:

The Certified MediNail-Advanced Nail Technologist™ (M-ANT) is an all new 15 module program for professionals who have completed advanced training in working aseptically with clients for their ultimate protection from the transfer of infection. The M-ANT course is for salon-based nail technicians working to be the best in their professions by studying online & on the go, on any device (tablet, computer, or phone). The program is also designed to train its graduates in attracting three new client groups who either have never been in the salon, have been told by their physician not  to have services in salons, or have ceased having services due to adverse attention in the media.
