Employability Skills Summary

SIB20210 Certificate II in Nail Technology 

The following table contains a summary of the employability skills required by the beauty industry for this qualification. The employability skills facets described here are broad industry requirements that may vary depending on qualification packaging options.

Employability skill 

Industry /enterprise requirements for this qualification include :

Communication 

Communication skills, both verbal and non-verbal, are used by nail technicians to establish and meet the needs of clients. This is done through questioning and observation and by providing clear information on products used and services performed. Nail technicians are expected to read and interpret product information to make safe and appropriate recommendations to clients. Communication skills are also used to follow instructions and respond to change, such as current workplace environmental sustainability procedures.

Problem solving 

Nail technicians are required to solve problems by applying their knowledge of contraindications to anticipate and mitigate problems by advising clients of alternative options and/or referring them to alternative practitioners. Problem-solving skills are also applied in the performance of routine retail activities, such as selling products and processing financial transactions.

Initiative and enterprise 

Opportunities to use initiative and enterprise skills occur with the identification and provision of the most appropriate nail service for each individual client. Nail technicians are also required to exercise initiative and enterprise to recognise and adapt to changes in a client's condition or requirement, while maintaining safety and hygiene requirements.

Teamwork 

Nail technicians are generally employed in salons where they are expected to work individually and as part of a team. This requires knowledge of the roles and responsibilities of all team members and accepted or expected workplace practices. It includes the ability to recognise and act on situations requiring the assistance or attention of supervisors or senior staff members and participate in sustainable workplace practices.

Planning and organising 

Nail technicians are required to plan and organise information, time and resources in order to deliver an efficient and effective service. Information is required from clients to assess and respond to their needs while maintaining health, hygiene and environmental protection requirements; along with achieving designated time frames for the performance of the service. The use of resources must be planned and organised to minimise waste and prevent product and environmental contamination.

Self-management 

Nail technicians are expected to be self-directed in performing their role within the boundaries of workplace expectations and legislative requirements. The knowledge and application of health, hygiene and safety requirements are critical to the performance of this role.

Learning 

Nail technicians work in a dynamic industry that experiences frequent change due to the emergence of new trends and products. In this environment nail technicians are expected to take responsibility for maintaining the currency of their knowledge by identifying and assessing learning opportunities and sources of information, including professional associations and the influences and inter-relationships with complementary industries.

Technology 

Technology is used through the use of fixed telephones, retail equipment and in some cases electronic client booking systems. While nail technicians must be familiar with the safe use and maintenance of technology, they must also be able to use manual alternatives as required, in the event of the failure of electronic funds transfer equipment for example.

Due to the high proportion of electives required by this qualification, the industry/enterprise requirements described above for each employability skill are representative of the industry in general and may not reflect specific job roles. Learning and assessment strategies for this qualification should be based on the requirements of the units of competency for this qualification.

Packaging Rules

To achieve a Certificate II in Nail Technology, 15 units must be completed:

  • all 10 core units
  • 5 elective units:
  • a minimum of 3 elective units must be selected from the elective units listed below
  • the remaining units may be selected from this or another endorsed Training Package or accredited course; these must be units which are first packaged at AQF level 1, 2 or 3.
