We’re Committed to Delivering Outstanding Training Courses


Our training courses are held in our ISO certificated premises to enable us to train you in the best possible clinical environment. We are situated within our renovated and beautiful self contained building, which was actually a Gin distillery built back in the 1700's. Here we will teach you the essential aspects of aesthetic procedures and where we will enable delegates to develop a more advanced practical and theoretical knowledge of these complex and artistic treatments.

If you are completing your Injectables training with the CTIA, it is mandatory that you become part of the Cosmetic Treatments & Injectables Association, where the elements of safety are provided to our learners as part of the Associations package and benefits, which also includes Injectables Insurance to members from £560 +IPT (subject to acceptance), First aid, Hyaluronidase and discounts with suppliers.   

It is essential that the CTIA and our tutors dedicate our teaching methods and concentrate on the safety aspect of any treatment that we offer training in. We are totally dedicated to promoting safety within the aesthetic sector and only offer high quality training courses, and courses which we deem to be safe rather than the latest injection technique fad or craze. We may not be the cheapest, but we offer the most, having 12 years of injectables training under our belt, we are unlike another training establishment within our sector... the CTIA created the Aesthetic Therapist. 

It's very wise to remember that at the end of that needle is a client, and we believe that the client should always come first for safety and best practice rather than profit.

Not just an Association, but a network of like minded professionals, who work with each other to help build up our sector.

Membership package (for £29 per month), provides you with yearly First aid, CPR, Anaphylaxis management and Hyaluronidase training. We give you clinical oversight for prescribing and assistance with one of our CTIA 48 prescribers, plus we are always to hand when you need us.

We work alongside 2 major UK pharmacies where you can order your products and consumables for your treatments. You are able to apply for insurance with our UK insurance intermediaries where you can get insurance cover from only £560 +IPT for injectables (botox and fillers) depending upon insurance acceptance. We also provide a Prescribing Partner for those who have trained at our Academy; who all work together to bring regulation into the CTIA.

What our students say about us...

I'm so happy to of picked this place to do my training!! Definitely worth the 5-hour drive!! Molly is just amazing! A lady that loves her job and it really shows in training. She has taught me to be an amazing practitioner and I couldn't thank her anymore.

Jocelyn Whybrow

I've been with the CTIA for 7 years and I have been trained in botulinum toxin, PRP, fillers and all the advanced techniques, believe me fillers and botulinum toxin have come a long way in that time. Molly is always on the end of the phone if you need to get in touch, I would recommend anyone thinking training in aesthetics or updating their skills to train with this amazing company.

Julia Garcia

Fantastic training at CTIA with all members of staff being so helpful and welcoming. Their knowledge of the industry is outstanding and post training they are available for contact at any time when you need them. Molly has been particularly helpful with myself and has promptly responded and answered any questions I have had - at any time of day! Couldn’t recommend these guys enough!

Hannah Goldfinch

Molly is incredible I've learned more than I could have imagined and is there for constant support by far the best choice you could ever make for training or treatments. Also, so enjoyable cannot thank Molly & Brian enough for everything.
