TOP BOX Harley Academy Core Training in Botox & Dermal Fillers

Prepare for your Core Training course in injectables to get the best out of your training experience with Harley Academy.

Our Core Training in Botox & Dermal Fillers course is designed to help new aesthetics practitioners develop their fundamental skills. It consists of three days of training at one of our City of London campuses and 12 hours of eLearning. Establishing a foundation in theory and practice, it’s the perfect way to kickstart your career in aesthetic medicine.

During your training, you’ll increase your competence and safety as an injector, putting your aesthetics patients first. You’ll also learn the key science and theory of cosmetic toxin and filler treatments.

Your Core Training course comprises the following:

1. eLearning

2. A Foundation Training day

3. An Observation Day

4. A 1:1 training session in Botox

5. A 1:1 training session in dermal fillers.

These elements must be completed in this order.

Injectables Foundation Training

After completing your eLearning, your very first in-person training session will be your Foundation Training day. You can book this and all your other sessions through your eLearning account.

This full day at our Harley Academy Threadneedle Street location involves a morning of theory and mannequin injecting practice. During the afternoon, you’ll then be treating your first patient under the guidance of your clinical mentor.

Lunch is provided for all group, in-person, day-long sessions! Please let us know your dietary requirements when booking online.

Observation Day at Harley Academy

Your next session will be an Observation Day. This is where you observe narrated injectable treatment demonstrations by our specialist mentors. Of course, everyone loves the practical aspect of our aesthetics training courses, but these “Obs Days” also rate highly with our trainees!

We hold one remote Observation Day a month. To attend, you’ll need a device with a working camera and microphone, as well as a reliable internet connection.

You can attend your Obs Day in person at our City of London campus or via Zoom. Both options can be booked online via your eLearning account.

As you watch our mentors providing various filler and toxin treatments to patients, you’ll get the chance to ask questions. Don’t forget to take plenty of notes, too; there’s a lot of valuable information from these sessions!

You’ll learn skills during your Observation Day that you can then put into practice during your practical mentoring.

One-to-one mentored training sessions in botox and fillers

Lastly, you’ll complete the final two elements of your Core Training during a full day of practical, mentored injectables training sessions. Your aesthetics mentoring will always be one-on-one, meaning you never share patients with other trainees.

You’ll have a morning of botox training and an afternoon of dermal filler training. During these, you’ll consult and treat patients (provided by us) under the guidance of your expert mentor.

Upon completion, you can download your certificate from our eLearning platform. This confirms and documents your successful Core Training in Botox & Dermal Fillers achievement. It also allows you to obtain the necessary insurance you’ll need to start your aesthetic medicine career!

Your Core Training injectables course in summary:

  • Complete your eLearning remotely, at your own pace
  • Book and undertake your Foundation Training
  • Book and attend an Observation Day - either online or in-person
  • Attend your practical injectables training day
  • Get your certification to confirm that you’ve completed our Core Training in Botox & Dermal Fillers course.

These learning experiences and Core days are a great way to meet and collaborate with your peers. You’ll get the chance to train closely with our mentors, who are aesthetics specialists and have a wealth of knowledge you can draw from!

Don’t forget to turn up fifteen minutes before your sessions start and make sure you ask plenty of questions!
