How much hands-on training will I get in a medical aesthetics training course?
The amount of hand-on training is dependent upon the number of participants as well as the number and needs of the models. Although AMET cannot guarantee a specific number of injections during Botox and other training courses, the practical portion of the seminar is where AMET gets its highest reviews, as participants are extremely pleased with their “hands-on” experience.
What is the deadline for training course registration?
There are no deadlines for registration, but classes are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Some classes, like our Botox training course fill well in advance, so it is advised to register as soon as possible. Participant spots are reserved upon receipt of payment.
How large are the medical aesthetic certification classes?
Medical aesthetic training class size is limited to 10-12 participants, for maximum one-on-one time with the instructor.
