> What is level 5 & 7

By the end of 2017, all medics and non-medics delivering aesthetic treatments will need to have completed or been studying towards Level 7. The Level 5 bridging qualification has been developed to allow Level 4 trained Beauty Therapists to progress onto Level 7. This has changed in a bid to standardise the issue of whether or not non-medics should carry out injectable treatments. The qualification will focus on the general knowledge competence and skills that were identified as vital to safe & effective injectable treatments in the HEE Qualification standards published January, 2016

The course is £9995, which includes Level 5 & 7. We are able to offer payments in installments, however please contact us to discuss in more detail.
