Did you know there is no true certification for aesthetic injectors in Ontario and Canada? Courses that say they are “ Certified” or provide “Certification” or have a “ Board” are simply using these terms as part of their marketing strategy. When questioned, they will indicate that you are being “certified” to their individual criteria. Thus, you can imagine that “certification” can then vary widely across courses - some may provide in depth content and intensive hands on experience while others may definitely be lacking.
In the UK, there is a true certification available. It is administered through an independent awarding body with standardized learning objectives that need to be met. The assessment about whether the learning objectives are met is done through written assessments including an in depth injection logbook and a variety of short answer questions. The assessment is done by individuals completely separate from where the trainee took their training course. Thus, it is a TRUE third party certification, not influenced or decided upon by an individual training facility.
APT Injection Training is the ONLY company in Canada able to facilitate this International Certification in conjunction with their training partner , MATA Training, in the UK. The International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies (Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers) for registered medical professionals is designed to provide students with the latest and safest cosmetic injection techniques while awarding them with an internationally recognized qualification in the field of aesthetic medicine. This qualification is awarded by OTHM, a globally recognized, well-respected, and regulated awarding body.
Delivered through a “blended learning” approach, the International Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies combines online learning, hands-on injecting focused on skin rejuvenation, and independent knowledge and verification.
The initial clinical injection training portion of the course is held for two days either on a weekend or days customized to fit your schedule. It typically begins with a short didactic session in the morning followed by hands-on injection technique training with a maximum Trainee/Trainer ratio of 2:1.
This initial two-day course can also contribute to the completion of your logbook. The length of time it takes to complete the various components of the Certificate in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapies (Botulinum Toxin and Dermal Fillers) depends on each student’s time, pace, and unique circumstances.
APT offers this course to qualified medical professionals. Because this program is delivered through a “blended learning” method, students can conveniently arrange their online training according to their work schedule and lifestyle routines.
