  • What does VPI online course offer?
    Vanity Projects Institute offers two different styles of hybrid online curricula: Comprehensive & Accelerated. Comprehensive Curriculum: There are two levels of comprehensive hybrid curricula: Beginner Level and Intermediate Level. Both level courses contain 6 high quality pre-recorded class videos, detailed handouts, and a live Q&A session with the instructor. Students will have assignments throughout the course, and a final test. Each level requires 7 days to complete; the students will obtain the VPI diploma upon completion. Accelerated Curriculum: Our accelerated courses are design-centric and can be completed in less than one week. Students will skip the nail prep education portion (as they would learn in Beginner and Intermediate) and solely focus their education on design skills. Students will only have one homework item to complete, and still, receive a live Q&A session with the instructor.
