Who can take cosmetic injection training courses?

Cosmetic injection training courses are open to any licensed professional allowed to perform cosmetic injections within their jurisdiction. Common allowed licensures include MD, DO, APRN, PA, RN, DDS, DMD and DS. Certification from this course does not imply that you are legally licensed to perform such procedures within your licensing state. NIMA recommends that you research your state’s licensing and supervision requirements prior to enrollment.

Is a cosmetic injection training course required by my state?

Cosmetic injection training requirements vary from state to state so NIMA recommends that you research your own state’s requirements. However, with the high demand for these services and the increasing availability of trained injectors, medical facilities are now looking for “trained” applicants. Additionally, as cosmetic injections become more common, clients are also becoming more discerning in their requests for trained, experienced injectors. This course will give you the confidence you need to look for employment or to begin offering these services to your clients.

What other options are available for cosmetic injection training?

Formerly, most cosmetic injection training was on the job training. Today these services and trained injectors are more readily available, therefore patients are seeking out medical practitioners that have formal cosmetic injection training and experience. NIMA provides the highly-valued CME certification in their cosmetic injection training courses.
