SkinViva Training’s recent survey looks at what motivates people in choosing a training provider.
The results are very interesting, showing not only what potential delegates consider to be important, but also factors they consider less relevant.
Choose up to FIVE considerations which are MOST important to you when choosing a training provider for botulinum toxin and dermal filler procedures?
The answers in order of priority were:
|Hands-on practical experience with real patients||88%|
|Post-course clinical support||66%|
|In-depth training/study materials||64%|
|Getting a formal, regulated qualification||57%|
|Experience of the trainer||55%|
|Small group sizes at the training centre||52%|
|Training with people in the same/similar profession to me||25%|
|Being able to get insurance||17%|
|Post-course business support||17%|
|Getting a ‘good feel’ for the culture/ethos of the training provider||13%|
|Reviews of the training provider (e.g. Google reviews)||8%|
Practical Injecting Experience
Hands-on experience rates extremely highly, with nearly 90% of respondents ranking it as one of their 5 considerations.
This is an area where training providers vary widely. SkinViva Training courses are designed to allow very high levels of practical experience on the day. Course information is sent in advance so that the training day itself can focus as much as possible on the actual injecting skills. Live models are used and there is no need to worry about supplying your own model as these are arranged by SkinViva Training
Support after the course was the second highest ranking area.
Again, this is an area where SkinViva Training excels. On completion of the course, delegates receive access to a closed forum on Facebook, which enables past delegates and doctors to discuss anything from business tips and pitfalls to guidance on specific patient cases.
There is also a Complications Advice Line – past delegates can call or email for advice on any complications or side effects and will receive a professional medical opinion within 24 hours.
Shadowing is a popular post-course add-on, giving delegates 3 hours with an experienced SkinViva Doctor or Dentist at our Manchester clinic.
Finally, SkinViva Training offers further courses to enable delegates to develop advanced skills such as tear troughs or cheek enhancement. For bespoke requirements, a 121 session can be arranged with a SkinViva Training doctor.
LEAST important consideration
So what tops the list of least important consideration for choosing a training course?
Well you may be surprised to learn that it’s price.
It would seem that this is an area where quality wins out over cost and rightly so in our opinion.
