Our accredited Level 4 and Level 5 Laser/IPL training has been specifically designed, written and is delivered by industry qualified, experienced specialists.

Each programme has been written to meet the Health Education England (HEE) ‘Guidelines’ and is mapped against the Quality Credit Framework (QCF); programmes are externally accredited by the CPD Accreditation Group and externally moderated by the City of London Dental School.

All learners will have a unique learners registration number and each certificate carries its own unique certificate number.  Each certificate also has an embossed foil to prevent certificate being copied.  The Wynyard Aesthetics Academy will maintain the learner register, which can be checked by employers, local authorities and insurance companies for verification purposes and to enable replacement certificates to be issued for which there is a replacement fee.

This is a compulsory element of the training as it provides the in-depth understanding of the safe use of lasers and IPL and a pre-requisite for all Laser and IPL training programmes.

All courses run from 10am – 5pm. Course fees are: £395 +VAT for Lumenis customers and £595 +VAT for non-Lumenis customers. Certification fees are an additional £90 per certificate.
