Lynton is delighted to announce a brand new OFQUAL regulated qualification in Anatomy and Physiology for 2021!
Who Is This Course For?
This specialised virtual classroom VTCT Level 3 qualification provides the underpinning knowledge to help you understand the way in which our bodies work, which is a crucial part of the job of all aesthetic practitioners. Having a better knowledge of the various anatomical structures and the physiological function of the body systems can help you confidently assess and advise your clients about the best treatments for their concerns.
Having an A&P qualification is now also a suitable pre-requisite for people without a beauty or medical background who want to achieve higher aesthetic qualifications. This includes the Level 4 Laser and IPL hair removal and skin rejuvenation course offered by Lynton. Following the completion of these courses, you can complete a Level 5 qualification in Laser Tattoo Removal.
