Become An Educator - How It Works

                            Becoming An Educator - Is It The Next Step In Your Career? Teacher

Like most Master Level Nail Professionals you have spent years honing your skills, perfecting your applications, enriching client relations and maybe even have started your own business.
And now that you have reached a certain status you feel a natural progression for you would be to share all that you've learned with others in hopes of inspiring them to participate in this Truly Fabulous Career!  Or even perhaps you just feel that 'teaching is in your blood'!  We certainly understand that drive! 

As the great poet Maya Angelou once said - "When you learn, teach. When you get, give."  There is nothing as rewarding as passing along what you have learned to assist and to inspire others!

So you've always wanted to start your own nail program to start sharing all your knowledge with others - But where do you start?

Now you can create your Very Own Nail Program by incorporating our Internationally renowned TAOND Online Learning Platform!

At TAOND we've spent the last 18 years creating an AMAZING Online Nail Program that has educated hundreds of students from all over the world.
We feel it is a natural progression in our company's journey - that this is the right time for us to start "Teaching Those Who Love To Teach - How To Teach"!

Why incoporate our TAOND program into your program?

If you are like most educators who feel they would love to teach others the incredible Art of the nail industry, you want to solely focus on teaching your students to Master all the practical applications and less time focusing on the theory.  But as we all know that theory is an extremely important foundation of becoming a competent Nail Professional. 

Now with our TAOND Instructor Platform you don't have to worry about drilling into your students all the boring theory - we take care of that for you and you can focus on getting your students mastering their practical applications live in sessions with you!

How? By allowing you to use our TAOND Online program as the basis of your very own program in order for you to teach your students.  We take care of the theory portion of your program online and you focus on teaching the mastering of their practical applications in class with you!

It's the best of both worlds!  Convenient online theory for your students that they can access 24 hours a day/365 days a year and you get to focus on the fun exciting portion of the practial!

We've made teaching now as simply as enrolling your students in our TAOND Online program as a part of your program and they'll be mastering all the theory they need to work safely and compotently.

Here's How It Works

STEP 1 - Decide which TAOND program you would like to focus on with your students.  You can choose one or more if it suits you. 
Then Complete our TAOND Instructor Application form - we'll review your application to make sure that becoming a TAOND Instructor is a suitable option for you.
While we appreciate all applications submitted, there may be restrictions on what and whether or not teaching is right you.  We highly recommend that you research your local jurisdiction to confirm before completing the application form.

STEP 2 - If your application is approved we'll send you your Instructor Platform Set up Instructions and Agreement along with 'easy to pay' links for your Set Up Fees & Monthly LMS Hosting Fees.

STEP 3 - Sign and return your Agreement and pay Your TAOND Instuctor Platform SET UP FEES and enroll in your LMS (Learning Management System - where your program is hosted) Monthly Hosting Subscription program via PayPal.

STEP 4 - Once we have received your signed Agreement and Set Up Fees we will forward your TAOND Instructor LMS login details.  As a part of your TAOND Instructor Platform Set Up we have created a special Instructor's Only Course that you will have access to that guides you through how to run your program, technical issues like how to grade and communicate with your students and also lots of tips and hints to help you create a fabulous learning environment for your students. 

Start to finalize your in-class sessionsDetermine exactly what you want to cover off with your students while they are in class with you such as; the number of in-class hours, do they need to bring a practice client to work on etc.  Also, determine what products they'll need and if they will be purchasing these from you or you will be providing them with access to professional Beauty Supply store contacts.

STEP 5 -  As an Instructor you'll have full access to all your TAOND Online Modules, so take some time to familiarize yourself with the TAOND Online Program content so you'll know what your students are learning  and how you should be grading them.

STEP 6 - Start Marketing your Course and enrolling your students!

You can charge whatever program tuition you want* and then to enroll your students in your program and get them started you simply pay TAOND an Flat Rate 'Enrollment Fee' for each student in order to have us enroll them into your online portion of your program. 
Once enrolled your students can immediately start the online portion of their programs, completing their assignments and taking their tests.  As their Instructor you'll be notified each time one of your students completes an assignment or test that requires your grading.  You log into your Instructor account, grade their work and provide feedback.

Once your students have completed their online portion of their program with you, then simply determine when they are ready to start in class practical sessions with you. 

Barring any regulations and/or local/jurisdictional restrictions (if you live in an area of the world where licensing is required for Nail Professionals there may be restrictions on starting your own nail program, so we highly recommend confirming this before you apply) you are Free to create your in class curriculum - what skills you'll be asking your students to perfect, offer exciting Nail Art - REMEMBER - It's Your Program so you have Freedom!

That's the process for getting started in Creating Your Very Own Nail Program!  We can't wait to start working with you in your new Career as an EDUCATOR!
