The Short Answer Response (SAR) Assignment

Welcome to Stage 1 of the Assessment Process 

Stage 1 of the assessment process involves evidencing competency to meet two learning outcomes from Unit 1 and two learning outcomes from Unit 2.  This can be done in one of two ways.

2. Applying for exemption by attending an online RPEL mapping session (most experienced practitioners choose this route)

In the box below, you will find the learning outcomes that need to be covered for this part of the assessment process.The remaining learning outcomes for Unit 1 and Unit 2 will be covered in the written exam.


LO 1 – Understand the historical, economic and ethical contexts of aesthetic medicine.

LO 3 – Understand the key marketing responsibilities in relation to aesthetic medicine

LO 1 – Understand the professional responsibilities of healthcare practitioners, in the context of medical aesthetics.

LO 3 – Understand factors relating to medical aesthetic and appearance psychology.


If you do not wish to apply for exemption for stage 1, you will need to complete the SAR assignment for stage 1 of the assessment process. The SAR assessment requires learners to provide responses to four short answer questions associated with the learning outcomes listed above. MAP-IQ has provided you with a template to complete the SARs Assignment which you can find in the ‘Useful Resources’ section.

If you decide to complete the SARs assignment we strongly recommend that you read through the assignment brief and the sessions below to guide the completion of the SARs assignment.
