Otherwise known as ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’, the Harley Academy Level 7 Injectables Fast Track programme allows experienced practitioners to meet HEE requirements (now JCCP requirements) without taking time from their busy clinics. Upon completion you will have the highest level of formal qualification it’s possible to achieve in Aesthetic Medicine. Ideal for doctors, dentists and nurses. This is a nationally recognised qualification.
Duration: 6-12 months (flexible)
Skill Level: Experienced
Assessment: Logbook; short essays; one-day exam (OSCE)
Have your extensive experience (min. 3 years or 100 patients) officially recognised with a government-regulated qualification. This certification builds trust with your patients, and allows you onto the Joint Council’s national Register of approved practitioners.
Flexible and Fast
The Fast Track allows you to achieve the full Level 7 in a fraction of the time. The usual course takes up to 3 years, whereas Fast Track students can complete assessment in as little as one Exam Term (6 months).
The Level 7 in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine resulted from 2015 Health Education England Training Requirements. This is now the new lowest standard of training required by the Joint Council (JCCP) for delivery of botulinum toxins and dermal fillers.
You can achieve the qualification as soon as you submit your logbook and complete two forms of assessment.
Samples of treatment cases delivered over the past three years or more. Samples must demonstrate evidence of patient consultation including pre-treatment and post-treatment care plans. E.g. This can be in the form of clinical notes, taken from consultations.
A written reference from an experienced practitioner *to confirm that you have over three years experience, or have treated over 100 patients.The nominated experienced practitioner who provides the reference must also meet these requirements.*
Coursework: 34 Short Answer Questions (written assignments of 100-600 words each)
Observed Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE): A one-day final examination that allows you to demonstrate your practical knowledge and skills.*
Upon completion you will have the highest level of formal qualification it’s possible to achieve in Aesthetic Medicine. If your aim is to get on the JCCP register, build up your own practice, or gain a better position in a cosmetic clinic then the Level 7 will empower you to do so.
Level 7 Fast Track candidates are also eligible to learn how to use cannulae and other new procedures on our Masterclasses. These are especially well-suited to practitioners who want to advance their own cosmetic clinic.

What Will I Learn
The Fast Track programme allows you to demonstrate what you already know from your aesthetics practice, and gain formal recognition for it. Included in the programme is access to our comprehensive digital learning suite of videos, quizzes and interactive materials, where you can top-up your knowledge. This online learning covers:
Ethics and law in aesthetic medicine
Good medical practice is essential for a long-term career in aesthetics. Have an understanding of how to protect yourself and your patients legally and ethically.
Recognising healthy and unhealthy psychological drives is crucial for good practice in aesthetic medicine. Understand the signs of body dysmorphia, and how to deal with patients who may need to be refused treatment.
The skin is the foundation for all cosmetic procedures, and you will learn the structure and function of both the skin and hair and how they age over time. You will also learn to recognise skin conditions that contraindicate treatment, as well as referral pathways for patients suffering from skin-related concerns.
If you’re interested in learning to manage skin conditions, clinical skin rejuvenation treatments are taught our Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine Specialty Training programmes.
You can deepen your understanding of the science of botulinum toxins, including: mechanisms of action, how to consult for a wide range of indications, an array of optimal injection techniques, and how to manage complications and side-effects.

Why do the Level 7 Fast Track instead of a university Master’s?
The Level 7 Fast Track has been designed to fit around your schedule, rather than sticking to a strict academic timetable and set of submission deadlines. Complete in your own time, your own way. As a private company, the online learning we have invested in is also cutting edge in a way that university online tools can rarely be. We also have no admissions quotas, so you can apply throughout the year and if you meet the criteria, you’ll be accepted whenever works for you.
