Online learning platform Learna has developed the Fast Track Assessment (FTA) for cosmetic practitioners, in collaboration with the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP).
According to the platform, the FTA has been specifically designed for aesthetic practitioners who are seeking to register with the JCCP, and the course will streamline the qualifications process, enabling more cosmetic practitioners to be eligible to join the JCCP Government Professional Standards Authority (PSA) approved register.
Learna explains that the FTA consists of two components: a three-hour theoretical exam testing practitioner knowledge, and an Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE) which tests the individual’s clinical skills and competence.
The FTA results in the award of a formally recognised equivalent verification standard that equates to the JCCP Level 7 education and training standard for the injection of toxins and the insertion of dermal fillers.
Founding director of Learna and chairman of the Welsh Aesthetic and Cosmetic Society Professor Steve Davies commented, “The new Fast Track Assessment provides an alternative option for practitioners who may have many years of experience and expertise under their belts, and who are looking to demonstrate their experience within the cosmetics/aesthetics sector and be recognised as a JCCP registered practitioner. We look forward to working with the JCCP to provide this course for practitioners and to raise awareness of the importance of professional standards.”
Applications for the FTA will be accepted by Learna from May 1. The first assessment
dates for the FTA will be taking place at the end of June
