PG Cert in

Non-Surgical Facial Aesthetics

(Level 7)

Overview

  • This is a comprehensive competency-based flexible programme which provides a harmonious balance between the theoretical understanding underpinning the use of Botulinum Toxin and non-permanent Dermal Fillers and the clinical “hand-on” application of these therapies. 

  • The flexible nature of the programme means that you can enrol at any time and you have between 6 months and 2 years for completion

  • Over the duration of the programme you will observe and perform a total of at least 40 cases at one or more of our clinics.  All of the cases are provided and you will have the option of various dates and clinical sites.  20 cases will be mentored on a 1:1 basis.

  • This course has been carefully designed to align with the competency framework developed by the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP) resulting in programme which demonstrates “best-practice” in the Aesthetics industry.  

  • Having completed this course you will have the competence to perform facial cosmetic injectables.  

  • Given the robust blend of training candidates will receive; opportunities are likely to arise in the private sector of this growing industry post-successful completion of the programme.

  • What is different about the courses at the RASA Academy compared to other courses?
    Our focus is in providing a program with a personal touch. When booking a course you will be assigned a mentor who will contact you before the course day to help tailor the course towards your needs, make sure you understand all the pre-course educational material and answer any questions you may have. We also provide the smallest ratio of students to tutors (3:1), with a heavy focus on clinical hands on treatment on your course days. 80% of this day will be with live patients. Everyone’s position and goals in aesthetic practice is different: * Some students want to become full time practitioners, others part time * Some want to work in established aesthetic clinics, others would like to start their own business or introduce it as a new service * Etc. So after the course you will be contacted and be given in depth bespoke business/career guidance specific to your own situation. You will also be provided case guidance for your first few Dermal Filler and Botulinum Toxin case that you do after te course and then subsequent support and access to our resources (Consent forms, patient assessment forms, pre- and post op advice leaflets etc.) and educational material.
  • If 80% of the day is clinical, how do I learn all of the theory?"
    Much of the theory is covered in the e-learning platform. The access to this provided after you sign up for the course. This means when you arrive for clinical course day we can spend the maximum time treating live patients so that by the end of the course you are competent to provide treatments on your own.
  • When will I be able to provide treatments to my own patients?
    You can start treatment as soon as you have finished any of the courses and you have acquired the correct insurance/indemnity (which we will guide you for).
  • What does the Level 7 course involve?
    Please click here to find out more
  • Why would I consider Level 7 training?
    With the landscape of Facial Aesthetic industry changing, the shift is now gearing towards the need to having a postgraduate diploma level recognition of your competency in providing Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Filler. Although this is not currently a legal necessity, there are strong possibilities that this may be the case in the future. Our Level 7 training will provide more than the required amount of training to achieve this. This training also increases your favorability amongst aesthetic clinics looking to employ.
  • How does the Foundation Course relate to the Level 7 course?
    Our courses have been designed extremely carefully. The modules from the Foundation courses are a requirement for the Level 7 course. This means that if you had completed the Foundation courses in the past, it can be used towards your Level 7 course and the cost you paid will be deducted.
  • What happens if I have done a Foundation course elsewhere - will I still need to do your Foundation Course to do the Level 7 qualification?
    It is unlikely but we will need to see evidence that you have completed a Foundation course
  • For the Level 7 course can I be recognized for prior learning?
    If you have completed Foundation courses elsewhere, we will verify this and advise you the modules you will need to undertake to complete our Level 7 course. This will also mean a reduction in price for you to complete our Level 7 course.
