VTCT Level 4 Qualification in Laser and Light Therapies
In the last few years, we have seen a real emphasis placed on Laser and IPL training – the quality of it, its duration, and the experience of the training provider.
In the ever-growing and expanding aesthetics industry, being able to show that you have regulated qualifications is a great way to set you apart from other clinics. It also enables you to gain the best knowledge in performing treatments, which helps you to achieve the best results for your clients.
We believe this to be the best course out there for someone who wants to be competent and confident to then go on to perform skin rejuvenation treatments and hair removal treatments in their own business.
The JCCP is now stating that regulated qualifications are a must and that all practitioners should have them, regardless of background, to ensure correct and safe treatment.
Local Councils are now asking for relevant qualifications, especially in London, Wales, Northern Ireland, Leicester, and Nottingham.
About This Course
This 7-day course is perfect for those who are new to the industry or for existing practitioners who want further training or a formal qualification, specialising in hair removal and skin rejuvenation with Laser and IPL.
The theory days will be carried out remotely via a ‘virtual classroom’ to minimise travel time, whilst the practical will take place in our state-of-the-art Lynton Training Academy in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire.
You will learn how to perform hair removal on skin types 1-6 and skin rejuvenation typically on skin types 1-3.
There are some assignments to complete, including:
- Risk assessment
- Client care
A Level 3 Beauty, nursing, or medical qualification is required to sit this Level 4 course. If you do not have the required pre-requisite qualifications, then completion of our VTCT Level 3 Award in Anatomy and Physiology will allow you to progress to Level 4.
