Our foundation course in dermal fillers is structured specifically for nurses in Ireland wanting to enter the cosmetic injectables sector. Built from the MSc framework of the Level 7 injectables for aesthetic medicine.
Our course offers a deeper theory structure than any other course available in Ireland. We based the curriculum off of the Level 7 course. (We offer this specific course for nurses due to Irish legislation prohibiting nurses from administering anti-wrinkle POM.)
The theory component is delivered through our virtual learning environment; you study in your own time and at your own pace. Depending on your schedule completing the theory side can take 4 to 12 weeks.
