Scalp Micropigmentation Training Courses

World-renowned technicians Paul Clark and Simon Lane now offer award-winning scalp micro-pigmentation training at Brandwood Clinic in Solihull.

As two of the most talented and experienced SMP experts, Paul & Simon developed many of the techniques in use today. They have trained over 300 technicians, including some of the brightest talent in the business.

Brandwood Clinic provides a professional training facility with medical grade fixtures and fittings. We have created the ideal environment to learn the scalp micro-pigmentation process to the highest standard.

How is the training structured?

Our new course has been updated for 2020, encompassing innovative training delivered by the world’s leading master practitioners.

This Accredited Foundation Course in Scalp Micropigmentation Techniques includes all the required elements of health & safety, clinical practices and direct instruction from two of the world’s best practitioners, Simon Lane & Paul Clark.

Ahead of the course you will receive a manual featuring all the theoretical elements you need to learn in order to understand SMP. A test will take place during your time in clinic, the marks from which help to ascertain your qualification level.

The practical elements are delivered to a maximum of six trainees. Over the duration you will be equipped with the skills you need to produce high quality, consistent results with a high level of confidence and understanding of the process.

Each day, 10am until 6pm, is broken into clearly defined modules, each with specific learning objectives and desired outcomes. Your progress is assessed regularly throughout.

The final day includes supervised work on a model you will have sourced and provided, giving you crucial hands-on experience with a real client.

The extensive range of learning modules include:

  • Room setup, hygiene and clean-down.
  • Equipment and scalp pigment fundamentals.
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Health and safety
  • Planning a procedure over multiple sessions.
  • The consultation process
  • The critical depth factor.
  • How to create two amazing hairlines and side profiles.
  • Creation of density / dot spacing.
  • Blending with existing hair.
  • Treatment completion.
  • Taking great photos to showcase your work.

The revised structure of our all-encompassing training course puts you in a position to gain higher level knowledge and qualifications.

As part of this you can add further modules at a later date which enable you to qualify at Level 4 Scalp Micropigmentation Procedures, the highest qualification level available in the UK for SMP.

We were recently awarded the SMP Trainer of the Year Trophy for the UK at the World Scalp Micropigmentation Awards in Florida. We have won this accolade for two years in a row. The awards are voted on by established SMP practitioners around the world.  The training trophy was accompanied by other wins for Artist of the Year (also 2nd year running) and UK Clinic of the Year.

The CPD Accredited course is worth 130 points and costs just £2250. You will spend four days in clinic with us and be required to submit case studies thereafter for assessment.

We can recommend suitable hotels and provide travel advice if required.

At present, due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to offer advice on when training will resume. Please join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to stay in touch. It is likely that we will offer courses again in September/October.

If you are already trained and successfully practicing SMP, you may be interested in taking your knowledge to a higher level.

Paul & Simon offer direct instruction with masterclasses created specifically to address the issues you are facing in your treatments. As the courses are bespoke they generally run from 1-3 days and include no more than 3 participants per session, allowing a personalised, one-on-one, experience.

Practitioners have travelled from all over the world to take part in this process. Detail and prices available on request.
