We are not a UK company running a course in Ireland we are an Irish company supporting the Irish aesthetic sector.
Ireland Based Staff
Our teaching doctors and nurses are Ireland based aesthetic practitioners and some work for the HSE plus our support network is based in Ireland to provide help when you need it.
No one day courses
We do not support 1-day Botox®/Dermal filler courses. We are yet to meet a doctor or nurse that was ready and able to inject on their first day.
Unlimited Practical Clinics
Our course provides four practical clinics where you will see over 30 patients. However, you can partake in as many practical clinics until you are competent and confident to practice autonomously.
Follow on courses to stay abreast of the latest developments and progress to advanced procedures and techniques.
Why train with ATAI?
The most significant advantages of studying with ATAI is practical training and the Level 7 theory. Unlike our competitors that consider practical training to be administering half a lip. We provide a practical training pathway that will have you performing procedures to over 30 patients.
The average time required to complete our course is three months.

Practical Training Clinics – Our practical clinics is where you hone your skills while increasing your confidence. We have modelled the clinic to slowly introduce you to operating at a typical clinic speed. We do this through a time stepping programme where each clinic day reduces the time allowance per client from an hour in the beginning to thirty minutes by the third clinic. We also change the consultation process, at the beginning along with your mentor you perform the entire pre-consultation process, that includes, consent forms, medical and health history questionnaire and pre-treatment photos. By the third clinic, our aesthetic nurse performs the pre-consultation again mirroring the process in a typical aesthetics clinic. Our aesthetic nurse then leads the client into your treatment room where you then perform the typical treatment consultation process. Our teaching programme is unique in the aesthetics training sector has been formed through the understanding of what is required to produce competent, confident, aesthetic practitioners.
Our Level 7 online learning allows you to study in your own time and at your own pace.

ATAI was formed with one primary goal in mind, to provide the highest level theory and practical based education for the aesthetics sector. Our unquivering determination to ensure the best possible outcome for the general public starts in the education treatment pathway. We are an open and transparent vested interest group that believes injectable cosmetics have no place being taught to unregulated practitioners. Unregulated practitioners may not have the same training or accountability as regulated health professionals. Members of the public who choose to use the services of an unregulated practitioner have no way of holding that individual accountable for the care or services received. Training providers that facilitate training to an unregulated practitioner may not be breaking the law; however, it is unethical. Ultimately it is the general public that is the loser, often emotionally and or physically scared for life and as such, we disparage any organisation that encourages or upholds this practice.
ATAI is conveniently located in Swords, no need to battle Dublin City traffic, with plenty of parking, easy access from the M1 and M50. People travel from all over Ireland and Northern Ireland to attend training at ATAI, you could say, regardless if you are in Cork, Mayo, Galway or Belfast ATAI is worth the travel to set your medical aesthetics career on the right pathway.
