For experienced practitioners looking to achieve a nationally recognised postgraduate level qualification in Aesthetic Medicine.
Otherwise known as ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’, the Harley Academy Fast Track programme allows experienced practitioners to meet new HEE requirements without taking time from their busy clinics. This is an accelerated training route to completion of the Level 7 Certificate in Injectables for Aesthetic Medicine.
Completion of this Fast Track programme will give you priority access onto the official register of certified practitioners monitored by the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP).
You can achieve the qualification once you submit your logbook, and complete the assessment.
Samples of treatment cases delivered over the past three years or more. Samples simply demonstrate evidence of patient consultation including pre-treatment and post-treatment care plans. 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 over 100 cases.
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.
*The nominated experienced practitioner who provides the reference must also meet these requirements.
