Who is able to attend this course?

While the course is aimed at nurses, if you are a doctor or dentist that would like to gain the knowledge the Level 7 format provides, you are more than welcome to attend the course. However, you might be more interested in our foundation course in dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections

I am a beauty therapist can I attend this course?

Sorry due to insurance protocols and the problem of beauty therapy being an unregulated qualification, we are unable to facilitate training for beauty therapists.

Is there a practical component to the course?

Yes, the course is structured with the delivery of theory of approximately 113 hours through our virtual learning environment. In addition, the practical day sees you observing injectable treatment plus hands-on administering of dermal fillers. All our courses have a strong focus on practical skills.

Do I need to bring my own model?

No, we provide all models for the practical component of the course. If you do wish to bring along a model, please let us know at the time of enrolment.

Do I need my own insurance?

No, our insurance covers you on the practical treatment days. Once you have qualified you will, of course, need to organise your insurance to practice.

Can I practice after attending this course?

Yes, if you pass all components of the foundation course in dermal fillers it complies with all insurance needs.

All ATAI courses strive to facilitate the highest level of education in their class, and the dermal filler course for nurses is no different. We are confident that our course represents the highest level of training available in the Irish market. Our training focus on allied health professionals represents our ethics and principles in good outcomes in cosmetic care. Safety for the general public must be of paramount importance, we are concerned with training providers that facilitate training for non-medical allied health candidates, and you should be too.
