I wasn't sure about taking the certification class, but I am glad that I did. The staff was so helpful and I learned a lot. Thank you NSTPA!

Ashley was a great teacher! I went into the class having no experience or knowledge about spray tanning. After the class, I really felt confident in the entire spray tanning process and even started my own business!! I highly recommend the NSPTA training to anyone looking to get into the industry!
