A previous review of one star noted that NASP is not an accredited college, is a ridiculous review and completely irrelevant. Accreditation is given for full time studies in Ontario Colleges and makes them eligible to offer OSAP. The courses at NASP are supplemental upgrade programs for professionals already practicing.
To that effect I would like to advise anyone considering any of the course offerings at the North American School of Podology to not hesitate. If you care about feet – you will gain all of the knowledge you need to go from being good to great!
Knowledgeable and professional. A school well worth investing in for your education. To know the feet is to know the body.
Being able to meet the changing challenges of our clients feet is a growing concern for salon professionals!
As a committed NASP Educator in the US, I feel the education we provide helps our students confidently meet those client issues as foot care problems intensify world wide.
It was a fantastic course, We took away tremendous amount of knowledge and the teachers were fantastic definitely a recommendation for people looking to extend their knowledge and pedicures and foot care.
I took the Certified Master Pedicure Class with The North American School of Podology. This class is incredible! I highly recommend this class. Not only do you get way more extensive knowledge of feet and conditions that we have all wondered about as Estheticians but the educators are fantastic! So knowledgeable and passionate! I loved this class!
The North American School of Podology has been life changing and it has opened my eyes to my scope of practice! Not only was the class informative but we had 2 practical days where we got to really get a handle on how to assess our clients feet and what we are able to work on, recommend or refer. I highly recommend if you want the best knowledge on foot care to take the CMP class!
I love the staff here. They care about you and are always more than willing to help even after you complete the class.This school teaches the truth about feet. It is money well invested. I can not wait to take more classes. Much love to Nikki,Suzanne, and Kayla. God Bless You
recently attended the Certified Master Pedicurist class in Orlando. I have, in the past, attended certification courses in several industries, but I have to say, this was an excellent course. Firstly, Brenda and Vicki shared their extensive knowledge and experience. They were extremely hands-on with a large class, and directed closely so ensuring that all students were helped at their individual level. Also, the two additional instructors, Jae and Lourdes, were extremely attentive and shared their excellent experiences. I am so looking forward to my next opportunity to continue my education with this wonderful school!
