NB: We expect the delegates to have read the course materials fully prior to attending the onsite course at the Academy of Advanced Aesthetics

In order to graduate from all of our courses, delegates will need to pass a final written examination to assess their knowledge and understanding, and to pass a practical observation performing the treatment in full, including client consultation and aftercare. For Level 4 courses, after having completed the practical session at the Academy, delegates will be asked to complete four case studies and a 5,000-word assignment in order to complete the course

Level 4 Accredited Course certificates will be issued externally. For our Short Courses, we will provide an Academy of Advanced Aesthetics Diploma

The Acoustic Wave Therapy Level 4 accredited course carries 7 credits and will qualify you for insurance cover. Some of these credits can be transferred to other courses if the subject matter overlaps. For example, if you have studied the necessary Health and Safety legislation in the Aesthetics sector, you will not need to cover this in the same amount of detail for any additional course which covers this same material

Our Level 4 is suitable for Medical professionals and Aesthetic practitioners and includes a substantial theory component and a two-day practical training session where you will be asked to demonstrate your competence in the treatment through a series of assessments and exams

We also offer short courses for those wish to learn more about the treatments without gaining an accredited Level 4 course. Please contact us for more information
