MAP-IQ RPEL ROUTE TO QUALIFICATION
MAP-IQ is the only OFQUAL regulated and JCCP approved training centre specialising solely in the recognition of prior learning and experience for clinical aesthetic practitioners. Our sole aim is to provide experienced practitioners with a regulated assessment route to formally evidence competence to practice in clinical aesthetics through the achievement of a postgraduate level 7 Diploma in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Treatments.
Regulated practitioners who meet MAP-IQ’s entry requirements can claim exemption from undertaking the full Level 7 learning programme including the clinical skill observations and supervised treatments and progress directly to assessment. Additionally, practitioners who can evidence competence through a comparable post graduate Level 7 regulated qualification may be able to claim further equivalence and or exemption against the internal part of the assessment process. All RPEL learners must undertake the external assessment process which consists of an online written exam and two short online OSCEs assessments.
With the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) recommendations to the UK government for regulated and industry standardised qualifications in clinical aesthetics, now is a good time to consider joining the UK’s growing community of qualified clinical aesthetic practitioners and differentiate yourself from those who remain unqualified and unregulated.
On successful completion of the RPEL assessment process, practitioners will graduate with an OFQUAL regulated and VTCT accredited Level 7 Diploma in Clinical Aesthetics and be entitled to use the following post nominals – PgDip(Aes).
