Scalp Micropigmentation Training Courses

World-renowned technicians Paul Clark and Simon Lane now offer award-winning scalp micropigmentation 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 100 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 micropigmentation process to the highest standard.

How is the training structured?

Our Level 4 Scalp Micropigmentation course is independently accredited and represents the highest qualification for SMP available in the UK.

We have joined forces with Finishing Touches Group, one of the UK’s premier training and equipment providers, to create a programme that 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.

We were inspired to take our training to a higher level by Health Education England’s report on standards in cosmetic practices and the increased requirements demanded of practitioners and trainers. As licensing authorities and insurers are rightfully demanding evidence of qualifications and ability, FTG and Brandwood Clinic have stepped up to meet that need.

The Level 4 qualification is attained through two sections of online theory training (before & after the practical unit), 3 days of practical plus a half-day assessment at a later point. You will also be required to submit 5 case studies.

The practical elements are delivered to a maximum of six trainees. Over the duration of the course 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.
