You should contact your state board. Start here US State Boards/Licensing. Your instructor should be able to provide this info to you too.

Then practice those requirements.

Once licensed your steps are your choice.

Disregard my last post as I see you are in Greece.

Typically a mani/pedi is not performed with an efile. Does your country have requirements listed on a website or does your instructors have that info?

I don't use a efile for manicure, but I do use the dremel, battery operated one for pedi.

soak for 5 min
dry feet, spray blue cross on cuticle push back cuticle, trim nails, shape with file.
i use fine sanding band on slow to buff around cuticle and file down thick nails with dremel
then i use blue cross on feet, spray callus, let it sit for a minute. and i use a coarse band and buff off calluses. repeat b.c. application and buffing with dremel.
use a foot scrub wash off
massage
polish nails

Actually using an efile can be quite harmful if not experienced and honestly the best way to learn is - to do. Practice pressure on yourself and get some friends/family to practice on too. Also try to find yourself a mentor that you can go and watch. Thats what i did when i was still in school. I found a wonderful gal locally that allowed me to come in and watch her work. And a bonus to that is she was/is an educator for CND....so she gave me a bunch of product left over from classes. It was awesome. Another way is to go get services yourself somewhere. Go undercover tho cuz alot of ppl in this biz dont wanna share techniques with others.
But nornally an efile is not used in either..in my opinion...for manis and pedis. If you get some good callus softener (discussed in anothee thread) and good foot files..there is no need for an efile. Unless u r doing rockstar/acrylic toes or something. So keep that in mind. But dont worry...we all were in your shoes at one time..and u wont learn everytg all at once..but continually educating urself is the key!! Best wishes to ya!!
