This course includes more information than you need to know as a non-medical professional. This course in no way certifies anyone to perform injections. This course will educate non-medical professionals on safety, sanitation, transmission, hand hygiene, personal protective equipment, and make you a more informed professional. We believe that all tattoo artists, PMU artists, microbladers, and estheticians should have this knowledge as well and medical professionals. We believe we can keep more organizations, aesthetics professionals, aesthetics clients, and tattoo clients safe by arming yourself with this knowledge.
