Practical Training Clinics – Our practical clinics are 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, which 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 and has been formed through the understanding of what is required to produce competent, confident, aesthetic practitioners.

Exams

During the theory stage of the course, three assignments need to be completed.

  • Assignment 1 – The client consultation, the need for record-keeping and client needs evaluation.
  • Assignment 2 – This assignment is to show you have a working knowledge of the physiology of skin ageing and understand the need, process, and have the ability to carry out an advanced skin assessment.

The theory component represents approximately 113 hours of study delivered through our virtual learning environment. Models are provided for your practical application of Botox® each procedure is photographed before and after in accordance with standards for record of treatment. Unless explicitly stated, models used for your record of treatment cannot be used for general marketing materials.

A comprehensive theory programme might be the cornerstone of our aesthetic medicine courses, but practical hands-on training is the foundation. Training to a Level 7 standard produces competent practitioners; furthermore, our ability to train you on many evidence-based modalities takes you on a journey from an injecter to a specialist in non-surgical aesthetics.
