Aesthetic training companies Harley Academy and SkinViva Training have partnered to offer the Ofqual-accredited Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine qualification.
According to the training companies, the qualification is fully compliant with the requirements of the 2016 HEE review. Harley Academy is a JCCP approved provider, status subject to conditions being met by September 2018 when the JCCP will announce its final standards for training providers.
The companies explain that students will demonstrate their newly-learned skills by performing dermal filler and botulinum toxin treatments, while establishing a portfolio of 40 supervised patient cases. They will also complete coursework assignments and structured clinical examinations, which are marked by externally-approved assessors.
Both SkinViva Training and Harley Academy will continue to individually educate their own students for training courses and mentoring.
Dr Tristan Mehta, CEO for Harley Academy, said, “We’re excited to be working in partnership with SkinViva Training. Pooling our resources and skills allows us to provide greater geographical coverage across the UK for students wishing to obtain a recognised, highly credible qualification that allows medical professionals to prove they meet a set of independently verified standards in injectable treatments.”
Lee Cottrill, business development director at SkinViva Training, said, “Both our organisations share a common set of corporate values and beliefs on the need for regulation and tighter standards. We’re hopeful that this will be a fruitful relationship to help continue to shape the industry.”
