Learners will gain a post-graduate level of understanding in a number of key areaswithin non-surgical aesthetics including facial anatomy, skin physiology, anddermatological indications/contraindications of treatment.

We are now proud to be offering a Level 7 Diploma. In order to do this we have had to change awarding body, bolster our learning materials, and meet stringent new criteria and specification. All learners signed up before June 2020 will be completing their certificate with the awarding body SFJ Awards, those enrolling after will be completing with the new awarding body OTHM Qualifications. We, as an educational academy, remain committed to providing our delegates with rigorous hand-on training to the highest educational standard.
Level 7 refers to a level of education equivalent to a master’s degree. A level 7 diploma is a globally-recognised qualification. It is a higherqualification, and worth more credits than a Certificate, but not a full master’s. It can be ‘topped-up’ to a full master’s degree.

The course does not follow the traditional academic calendar – instead it’s designed to be entirely flexible to work around you and your commitments, so you can enrol at any time! Along with this you can access the majority of the work remotely, at your own pace, and attend which course dates and locations suit you.

Practical training days are based on full training days, supplemented by online learning materials and training videos. Mentoring sessions are mornings only. You choose which dates and locations suit you. The rest of the course comprises theoretical reading, training videos and coursework – this can all be completed at your own pace. As such the full qualification from start to finish is flexible but can be completed from around 9 to 24 months.

RPL will differ for each practitioner. If you are very experienced and can provide sufficient evidence of your previous cases, in addition to providing previous relevant CPD and training evidence you may very well be able to simply complete a few written assignments to prove your theoretical understanding. This will represent a significant saving of money and time in achieving your qualification.

If you have prior experience it may well be possible for you to complete the course in its entirety remotely. For this you will be consideringapplying for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) – please see above. If you have no, or little prior aesthetics experience you will need to attend practical training days. The majority of the work involved for the course however can be accessed remotely.

The cost you pay will depend upon which package you choose and how much experience you already have.

We are happy to be entirely flexible with regards to payment options. You can by in up to 10 interest-free monthly instalments, in full, with a deposit up front or you can simply pay for each stage as and when you wish to attend it. You can see a breakdown of the prices for each stage on the infographic below.

To meet the practical training element of the course you must evidence 40 procedures in a portfolio. To do this you will attend 3-5 morning sessions, held at weekends. We set these sessions up for you entirely, including your patients, portfolio and products. We take care of everything beforehand, and everything after, including patient aftercare. You simply need to turn up, ready to inject under the close supervision of our expert trainers.

As long as you gain relevant medical malpractice insurance you may begin practicing on your own patients as soon as you have completed your Foundation training day

**You will only be able to practice the procedures for which you have completed training – for example after the Foundation trainingyou will gain competency in the Foundation procedures, following your Advanced training you will be able to independently practice the procedures covered on your advanced course.

Our level 7 trainers have to meet stringent criteria to train on the level 7 course days, you can view our esteemed faculty here. (link to level 7 trainers page)

The majority of the required work for the level 7 qualification can be completed in your own time and at your own pace.
