KOKOIST Level 1 & 2 Certificates Course

Join Australia’s Official KOKOIST Educator, Tori Pan, to learn more and get certified in mastering KOKOIST products and techniques. 

This certification program will be divided into three different levels: Premier, Excel and Hybrid. This allows both beginner learners and qualified nail tech business owners to learn different Japanese Gel techniques. 

This certification program aims to retain conventional Japanese Gel nail techniques while thoroughly educating nail technicians on everything KOKOIST. After completing this certification, students will be fully equipped to handle any nail-related tasks utilising KOKOIST.
