IQV were granted UKAS accreditation for ISO17024:2012 and specifically, a first of its kind personnel certification scheme for L4 in Skin Rejuvenation techniques for aesthetic practitioners in April 2020. This is the first step to be able to offer a unique, internationally recognised competency framework providing a recognised route of progression against the latest cosmetic guidelines.
Candidates undertaking this unique certification scheme are provided with class leading eLearning platform to develop their skin rejuvenation knowledge and understanding. This leads onto a range of hands on training sessions and subsequent examinations to build upon and develop aesthetic competency.
Through embracing remote training and distance learning, the IQ Verify certification scheme removes the inconvenience and delay to accessing and progressing against the latest industry knowledge- particularly in the current climate. Learning Providers wishing to deliver this certification Scheme to candidates must first undertake an audit against the relevant CPSA standards to ensure safety standards are maintained at all stages- of key value to all involved.
IQ Verify are currently liaising with the JCCP to ensure that those with an IQ Verify Level 4 Certificate can stand above the crowd and gain access to the JCCP practitioners register. Discussions thus far are positive and we hope to hear an outcome on 10th June.
This Level 4 is the first step in our progression pathway from Level 4-7 in the field of skin rejuvenation. Levels 5-7 have been written and are currently being piloted prior to their submission to UKAS for accreditation.
Update June 2020: IQ Verify Level 4 in Skin Rejuvenation now accepted to join Part B of the JCCP Practitioner Register. For more information, please refer to the news section of our website.
