Toxins & Dermal Filler

The most comprehensive toxins and dermal filler training course available in Ireland or the UK. A.T.A.I. has built a reputation of providing graduates recognised as the best in the industry.

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.

Irish company

We are not a UK company running a course in Ireland we are an Irish company supporting the Irish aesthetic sector.

No one day foundation courses

We do not support 1-day Toxins/Dermal filler courses. We are yet to meet a doctor, dentist 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.

Masterclasses

Stage 2

Theory

Stage 3

Practical Training

Once you have completed the theory requirements, you book in for a practical training date. Practical training performed on everyday people from consultation through to final administering.

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, 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.
