- I completed the foundation training, and am I not sure if advanced is suitable for me?
After completing the foundation training in Botox and Dermal Fillers, you have already gained the necessary skills in aesthetic practice – making you a suitable candidate for the advanced training. However, you could even go on to complete our Level 7 Diploma in Facial Aesthetics: Incorporating OTHM Level 7 Certificate in Clinical Injectable Therapies.

- Can I ask to get experience using specific techniques for the practical days?
At MATA, we try our best to accommodate your needs on the practical sessions and give you give us some notice, we may be able to select a model who seeks a particular treatment. For example, temple fillers or practice with a patient who suffers from bruxism.
- Why should I enrol in the advanced training when the foundation training gave me the required skills for Botox and Dermal Fillers?
Essentially, its all about the competence of practice, many delegates do advanced training because they want to be sure that they are competent with aesthetic practice. Unlike the foundation days, which are a great asset to your portfolio, advanced training lets you gain experience with techniques not as commonly used in aesthetic practice. Not to mention learning to work in a risk-averse clinic, and developing the skills to become able to spot potential complications, not thoroughly explored in our advanced training days.
- How will I be assessed in your advanced training days?
We use a blended approach in catering to the individual by harnessing several methodologies to thoroughly ensure you feel competent with aesthetics. For example, we will assess your performance using direct observational practice (DOPs), where we can give you feedback and critique of your performance. Additionally, on our virtual learning environment (VLE), we guide you through the core content and assess your knowledge with short answer questions (SAQs) and end-of-unit review questions ensuring you thoroughly understand the material. Additionally, we ask you to keep a detailed logbook accounting all the direct experience you have had on the practical days which can contribute to our MATA Level 7 Diploma in Facial Aesthetics: Incorporating OTHM Level 7 Certificate in Clinical Injectable Therapies.
- Why should I enrol for your Level 7 qualifications?
As you are probably aware the tide has been changing within aesthetics, in 2010 there was a national crisis with the PIP implant scandal – this only emphasised the need for aesthetic qualifications to protect both patients and cosmetic professionals. MATA formed in 2015 has been an innovator in creating new qualifications tailored explicitly for medical professionals to follow the appropriate Cosmetic Standards Practice Authority (CSPA) guidelines: ensuring the highest level of protection for aesthetic products and patient care. Not to mention, we precisely follow the Joint Council of Cosmetic Practitioners (JCCP); a register created for medical professionals to ensure they demonstrate competent practice and knowledge with aesthetics. In our partnership with OTHM, our courses are designed to follow CSPA and JCCP rules and regulations which protects your rights, by proving competence of aesthetic practice and saliently any patients you treat with cosmetic procedures.
- What happens if I can’t make a scheduled practical day?
Time is of the essence, if you let us know in advance, then we may be able to shift the schedule around and put you on a day that is more suitable for you.
- Do I need to bring anything on the training days?
Not exactly, as long as come prepared after completing as much of VLE work online, then this should put you in good stead for practical sessions.
