During your training

What happens on the day?

We advise our trainees to refer to the individual course pages for specific information on what happens during your training course with us. As a general rule of thumb however, a typical 1-day training course is made up of a mix of classroom based learning, live demonstration, and plenty of expertly supervised practical hands-on experience. Based in Manchester, SkinViva Training offers a range of courses from foundation level to very advanced group and 121.

The most popular courses are:

Further Advanced Botox and Dermal filler group courses are available. The graphic below shows how a training journey could look:


Who will train me?

Your training will be undertaken by experienced Aesthetic Doctors and Dentists of SkinViva Ltd, headed by Dr Tim Pearce MB ChB BSc (Hons) MRCGP, a leading aesthetic Doctor and trainer, and Clinical Director of SkinViva Ltd – one of the North-West’s leading providers of non-surgical facial treatments. You can find out more about Dr Pearce here.

Will I get hands-on experience during training?

Yes most definitely! SkinViva Training puts hands-on practical experience at the heart of its courses. We believe that we all learn by doing so we put as much time as possible into ensuring you get ample opportunity to perform treatments on models and discuss and oversee approaches by fellow trainees.

Based in Manchester, SkinViva Training currently offers five courses designed to cover the most popular of non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Click the links below to be taken to the individual course pages for more specific information on each course.

Will I be working with other people?

A typical SkinViva Training course will involve both individual work and working with other people to benefit from shared learning and experience. Theory-based learning and assessment is carried out by our trainees on an individual basis. Practical hands on learning is carried out in small groups so you can share knowledge on injection techniques and best practice. We actively encourage all participants in practical sessions to have as much hands-on experience as possible however and so a rotation system is used to ensure all trainees have sufficient time to practice on our models.

Where can I park?

Passing your training course

Is it possible that I won’t pass the course?

We have designed our courses to provide excellent hands on experience, supervisory support and training materials so as to give you the best possible chance of passing your training course. Should you fail to meet the requirements on the day, you will be invited to attend a further training in order to continue to build your skills to the required level.

Yes, upon successful completion of the course, you will be issued with a certificate. You will need to give this to your insurance provider when purchasing cover.
