Our injection training academy was born out of a passion to elevate the artistic, clinical and business applications in Medical Aesthetic Injectable Training. Our classes are small with only two students and two trainers in each class – so that you get the time you need to cover everything required to inject with confidence, skill and business savvy.
Research indicates that only 1 out of 7 students taking most basic certification programs actually move on to become successful injectors clinically, artistically and in business. We take our training further to provide you with everything theory, hands on and business related – to ensure you feel confident to begin immediately after your training. Post training options are also available to ensure you are supported to follow through on your business implementation, clinical application and overall success. We know from personal experience how daunting it can be to get going in this Industry, so we want to make it easier for You.
Our Instructors are very passionate and experienced in the Medical Aesthetic Industry – both in private practice and as trainers – and they are committed to professional, standardized and safe cosmetic injection delivery as outlined by the College of Physicians and Surgeons and the BC College of Nursing Professionals. Because of our commitment to safety, our basic certification training also covers the introduction of cannulas so that you and your patients can feel relaxed knowing that there is a decreased risk of any complications as soon as you start injecting. You can count on thorough, detailed information that will inspire you to be an astute practitioner in the field. And lastly, you will have FUN.
We are excited to meet and support you in your new endeavor.
Feel free to reach out if you have questions before committing to a class – we’d be happy to speak with you in person!
