Nash Approved Internship Site
About a Nash Approved Internship Site
A Nash Approved Internship Site has completed the facility requirements to be a Nash Approved Salon.
Role of the Nash Approved Internship Site
The role of the Nash Approved Internship Site, participating in the Nash System of Education, is to provide training in bathing, grooming and styling for students to complete their practical skills portion of the diploma program. Internship sites make it possible for students who cannot afford to pay for their practical skills training and cannot secure financing.
Student Status at a Practical Skills Site Offering Internship Training
The individual participating in the internship is considered a student of the Nash Academy. The student is not an employee of the internship site. The salon does have the option to hire the student after training.
Does the Student Pay a Tuition Fee for Practical Skills Training?
The student is not required to pay a tuition fee for the onsite portion of the diploma program, however, the student must pay administrative fees to Nash Academy. The site does not receive monetary compensation from the school to train the student but does receive administative fees to record grades and attendance.
Tests Required After Internship Training
After students complete their onsite practical skills training at internship sites they attend the Nash Academy or a Nash Approved Test Site to complete the required trim styles to receive a diploma and certification.
Nash Approved Test Sites
Nash Approved Test Out Sites are located at all schools and training sites using the Nash System. Temporary test out sites are also held at grooming facilities and at the International Judges Association for Dog and Cat Grooming Competitions to accommodate bathers, groomers, and stylists worldwide to test out of their practical skills (trim styles) and receive a diploma in the art of bathing, grooming, and styling of dogs and cats.
Who Will Teach Student?
A Nash Approved Internship Site is not required to employ a Nash System Certified Practical Skills Instructor, however, they typically employ a master or expert stylist in the art of bathing, grooming, and styling the canine.
