INA, Ill. (July 16, 2013) – For those students interested in the innovative art of hair dressing or those with a keen eye for nail care, seats in each program are still available at Studio RLC, and they can work around your schedule.
Studio RLC’s newest program, Nail Technology, is scheduled to begin August 19. This unique and short program will help students learn all about nail care to join the workforce after 16 weeks of study. Classes will be held from 10 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and every other Saturday from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.
“We’re very excited for the college to be able to offer this new program. It’s such a short amount of time that I think it’s a great opportunity for that student who wants to study Nail Technology without the hair aspect,” said Daphne Mitchell, Director of Studio RLC. “Plus, our textbook is current with all of the latest nail techniques.”
Nail Technology is a program designed to teach students the skills of manicures, pedicures, nail tips and wraps, gel nails, acrylics and nail art. The program consists of four courses, Nail Technology Theory I and II and Nail Technology Clinical I and II.
Classes are held at Studio RLC at the Rend Lake College MarketPlace in Mt. Vernon, which also houses the college’s Cosmetology program. The Nail Technology program can serve as a stackable credential for cosmetologists looking to add to their skills.
Seats are also open in both the daytime and evening Cosmetology programs.
The daytime program is scheduled to begin August 26 and is a full-time, 10-month program. Classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and every third Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
“It’s doing really well,” said Mitchell, who added that the materials for the programs are also up-to-date.
The evening program will begin October 21, and classes are scheduled on a part-time basis for the 16-month duration. Classes will be held from 4 p.m. until 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and every other Saturday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
“The evening program is a really great opportunity for someone who still has children at home or someone who works full-time and might be looking for a career change,” said Mitchell.
In the Cosmetology programs, instructors train students in the basics of hair cutting and styling and work up to the latest, hottest trends. Services covered include shampooing, cutting, coloring and styling. Students also will learn other facets of the industry, including facials, nail care and excellent customer service.
