26 January 2022

Botox Training Courses For Nurses & Midwives, Northern Ireland

Array Academy is the popular choice amongst nurses, midwives, doctors, dentists and pharmacists for botox & dermal filler training in Belfast. Our courses are open to prescribing and non-prescribing medical professionals.

If you are considering a botox training course in Northern Ireland and have no previous aesthetic experience our beginners foundation botox and dermal filler course is the best place to start your aesthetics journey!


1. What does the foundation botox training course entail?

In advance of your foundation botox and dermal filler training you will complete our e-learning theory training before attending the practical session. All training delegates will be given lifetime access to our e-learning learning suite of material.

Our e-learning suite hosts a range of invaluable material you will need for after you have completed your training day. In here you'll find:

  • Our theory lecture videos on botulinum toxin & dermal filler

  • Model demonstration videos of the techniques you were taught on your practical day in botulinum toxin (forehead, frown lines and crow's feet) & lip filler

  • Practical business advice for your new clinic

  • Starter kit checklist of items you'll need to gather

  • Free anatomy posters

  • Patient consent forms and aftercare forms and much more!

2. What’s included on the training day?

The foundation botox & dermal filler course is a full day and runs from 9am - 5pm. On the day, each delegate will get hands-on experience injecting with live models under the close supervision of our trainers (Dr Chris Hutton and Dr Judith Storm).

  • All of our courses are CPD accredited

  • As a Hamilton-Fraser and Cosmetic Insure recognised courses all of those who complete courses are eligible to take out cosmetic insurance with the industry's leading insurance providers right after completing the course

On the foundation botox and dermal filler course you will receive botox training (three areas include - forehead, frown lines and crow's feet) and lip filler. 

  • Insurance for the day

  • Hiring of models

3. Practical/business elements 

On the foundation training course we cover the practical elements of setting up and running your clinic. We’ll cover all of the following to help you get started:

  • Insurance

  • How to order product and where from

  • What you will need to set your clinic up

  • How to attract patients

  • Setting pricing for your clinic

  • Other business considerations

4. Prescribing service to non-prescribers

As botox is a prescription only medication it will need to be prescribed for patients before it can be administered. Non-prescribing medical professionals will need a prescriber to see each patient and provide a prescription for the patient. We offer a prescribing service to non-prescribers who complete any of our courses where our doctors will visit you in your clinic to prescribe for your patients (T&C’s apply). You can avail of our prescribing services following your course by booking your slot online.  

We also have a database of prescribers across Northern Ireland that you can access, all of whom are happy to prescribe for you.

Non-Medical Prescribing (V300) DPP Service

This service is open to anyone who has previously trained with Array Academy on any of our courses. All those who apply for the v300 prescribing course require a DMP (designated medical practitioner) and PS (practice supervisor) before application. These mentors, along with an approved clinical environment approved by the university, are almost impossible to find in the aesthetic industry. Array Academy is able to offer you DPP and PS services.


5. Support following your foundation botox and dermal filler training course

  • After completing your course you will get 12 months email support from the Array Academy trainers.

  • If you feel you need some refresher training or maybe a little bit more practice to help build your confidence we can provide a 1 hour 1-1 training session with our advanced injector and trainer, Nurse Emma Ross.

    During the 1-1 training session with nurse Emma she will cover the lip techniques from your foundation course. You will bring along your own model and treat them from start to finish under expert supervision from nurse Emma.

    During this 1-1 training there will be plenty of time to ask questions on the day too.

    The cost for this training is £240 (price inclusive of VAT). If you wish to book a 1-1 training session please contact a member of the team on training@arrayacademy.co.uk
