About Our Fundamental Training

The course is comprised of a minimum of 100 hours of instruction and practice including hands on practice modules and live models. Although it is not required, you are strongly urged to come to our clinic to observe procedures as often as possible-this is available to you for up to one year after training, however phone and email support is ongoing.
Manual, textbooks, and in class practice materials are provided to you. We do offer a beginner kit including machine, power supply, needles and pigments at an additional cost (see below)
