There has been phenomenal growth, over the last couple of years, in the number of providers offering aesthetic training and sometimes it is difficult to tell the good training courses from the bad. We are now more often seeing news articles like the below discussing the 'ugly side of the aesthetic training industry'. https://news.sky.com/story/fillers-false-advertising-and-intimidation-the-ugly-side-of-the-aesthetic-training-industry-12345015 So how can you tell the good from the bad? Below are 5 key things to consider when choosing an Aesthetic Training Provider. 1. Are they regulated? There are currently no legal requirements for training academies to be regulated. However, some training providers may choose to be registered with a regulatory body to ensure they are continually improving standards and providing the highest quality of care. The Aesthetic Training Academy is the first and only training academy to be registered by Healthcare Improvement Scotland (HIS). All independent clinics providing aesthetic medical treatment in Scotland ran by registered Doctors, Dentists and Nurses must be registered with HIS, so we feel that is is only right for the Aesthetic Training Academy to meet the same high standards set by HIS. 2. Who is performing the training and what are their qualifications? One of the most striking things identified in the above article, is the lack of experience that many of the training providers faculty have. Before undertaking any course research the faculty who will be carrying out your course. Reputable training providers should have a 'Meet The Team' section on their website listing who their faculty is, how long they have been performing aesthetic medicine and what their qualifications are. Look for faculty members who frequently lecture at conferences, host educational webinars, write publications for journals and magazines and are key opinion leaders for reputable brands.
