Nail technician to undergo training after dying from a brain tumour

Posted September 08, 2019 05:32:03 A new job is opening up in Australia after a man died from a rare form of brain tumours, the ABC understands.

The National Centre for Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (NCND) said Dr Sam Paine has been training a cohort of Nail Technician Program (NTP) candidates to be able to work in clinical laboratories.

NTP graduates are expected to be employed in a range of roles in the next two to three years.

Dr Paine is a professor of medicine at the University of Queensland, where he was an expert in treating children with brain tumases.

“The NTP is a great program for young people to get their first job,” Dr Paine said.

He said it is the only training program available for NTP graduates in Australia.

It is not known whether Paine’s work in the NTP will include a job in the hospital.

NCND chief executive officer Chris Wark said the NTPs training was a “significant step forward” in training Nail Technicians.

NSW Police said it was investigating the death. ABC/AAP
