Beauty Therapy Level 4 Laser Hair Removal Qulaification As Nurse

by Susan

Hi There,

I am a second year student nurse (qualifying in September 2014)and wondered if it would be possible to do a course to obtain insurance to conduct IPL treatments before I qualify? Or would you have to wait until qualifying as a registered nurse?
Many Thanks,

I understand that you're gonna be qualifying as a nurse next year, so you should have finished some of your modules by now because I think it's a 3 or 4-year course if I'm right.

From my experience the insurance companies will insure you as long as you are in your final year of your nursing or third year, but you will need to check with your insurance companies.

Do give BABTAC a call, email them whatever you've got so far for the first year and second year and it shouldn't be a problem.

I do advise you to go and do either the 3-day BMLA-laser course, which covers the core of knowledge and laser hair removal training, theory and the practical side of things so you'll get the knowledge of that and the insurance companies do require you to have core of knowledge.

The other option is you can do the level 4 course, which we have a 12-week course. That's starting the 6th of July, which is Saturdays once a week, and this course is suitable for yourself as you're going to be a qualified nurse soon.

And this will allow you to get all the theory knowledge for laser hair removal, how it works, what hair growth to treat, skin types, etc. And it would give you the practical side of things as well.

By 2016, as far as I'm aware most of the insurance companies will require you to have a level 4 qualification so it is advisable. But do check with some insurance companies, give them a call and tell them that you're doing your final year in nursing and you're interested in doing laser and will they insure you.

What they will do is get you to email a letter just confirming you passed your first and second year and third year, etc. and they should insure you, because they've insured nurses in the past that are in the final year and they've been able to carry out laser hair removal.

I hope that helps
