Basic Tanning Certification
Indoor Salon Certification
NTTI’s objective is to provide the indoor tanning industry with
valuable, affordable and convenient training for tanning salon owners
and operators. Our mission of education is simple— to improve
the professionalism and reputation of the indoor tanning industry. Formal
training teaches salon personnel how to recommend proper exposure times
for each tanner and it also helps them to understand the technical aspects
of indoor tanning. NTTI is recognized in all 50 states. Louisiana requires in-classroom training for NTTI's Basic Tanning Certification.
Salon owners and staff have the ability to become certified
online, on their own time schedules.
Professional expertise gained through NTTI’s
online programs has helped to increase tanning consumer
confidence with the most up-to-date information available
in the industry.
The NTTI Online Learning Center makes learning more
accessible because it removes the physical boundaries
of the classroom, reduces class scheduling restraints
and offers easy access to industry training via any
online computer. It is especially appealing to those
salon operators who, for some reason, cannot attend
regional distributor trainings or trade expos. The following
