In order to attend the Level 3 (Advanced Botulinum Toxin) and Level 4 (Facial Dermal Fillers) courses, practitioners must treat 20 cases from their current level prior to attending. Below are some FAQ’s about the case requirement.
What is the definition of 20 cases?
Practitioners must treat a minimum of 20 individual and separate patient cases back in practice (ie: after completing the Level 2 course, you must treat 20 Level 2 cases back in practice before attending Level 3). The cases must be documented using the Roberts Facial Rejuvenation Photography series.
Why is this a pre-requisite?
This requirement has been developed to help practitioners achieve a high level of clinical competency and proficiency, prior to progressing to the advanced levels. It is important for practitioners to gain experience and confidence at their current level, prior to learning more advanced techniques. We believe this tiered and gated educational format will allow you to provide a high-level of patient care.
Am I required to submit my cases prior to registering or attending the course?
PTIFA works on a honor system. You will not be required to upload or submit your cases to us prior to registering or attending a Level 3 or Level 4 course.
Can I register for a Level 3 or Level 4 course prior to reaching my case requirement?
Yes, however it the practitioner’s responsibility to ensure they meet course requirements.
What support is available to help me reach my 20 cases?
We provide a number of resources, tools and templates in the online Botox Study Club. We recommend that you upload your cases regularly in the “Case Support” so that we can provide you with feedback and help develop your confidence. We have also posted a number of patient education and marketing templates to help you integrate treatment into your practice.
Do you have any other advice for helping me reach my 20 cases?
The best advice we can give you is to cross-train your entire team and to master the Roberts Facial Rejuvenation Photography series. Nothing beats the enthusiasm your team will have after completing the Level 2 team training course. They also receive hands-on training taking the photography.
