As you research Botox® training programs, you should compare accreditation and check to ensure the program offers the necessary certification for licensing in your area. Other considerations are the training format, cost, and location. Most training centers have web sites and toll-free telephone numbers to help you gather the information you need to make an informed choice about Botox® training.

Botox®, or botulinum toxin A, is usually administered by a certified medical professional such as a doctor, dentist, or nurse. Medical professionals must meet annual continuing education requirements to remain licensed and certified. Botox® training may be used to meet this requirement.

Check with the program guidelines to determine the number of training hours that the seminar fulfills; most programs are taught in one-day or two-day seminar formats. Extended courses may include seminars on dermal fillers and other minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. If a program is not governed by a valid accrediting body, it probably will not provide necessary training hours.

This treatment is usually cosmetic in nature, but researchers have recently discovered bona fide medical uses for this drug. Practitioners who would ordinarily elect not to receive Botox® training may chose to take a seminar on medical uses such as relieving migraines. You can select a program that specifically focuses on medical applications of Botox®.

The format for Botox® training is usually a hands-on classroom environment. They feature lectures on the anatomy of muscles and the skin as well as a description of the Botox® products on the market. A good training course should also include exercises where students use saline rather than active Botox® cultures to practice injection methods. While there are some online programs available, you should be wary of them because they may not meet the necessary requirements to legally administer Botox®.

The cost for Botox® training is between $1,000 US Dollars (USD) and $2,000 USD. The price variations most closely reflect the length of the seminar. Depending on your organization's reimbursement policy for training, cost may influence the program you decide to attend.

Location may also be an important factor in selecting a Botox® training programs. There are accredited programs in most major cities throughout the US and United Kingdom. If you must travel out of state or overseas to obtain Botox® training, but sure that the program that you select meets licensing requirements in your area.

Just to let everyone know, KT training is based in the UK and when I phoned them up, they said that I should have known that already but I mentioned they shouldn't have posted these comments on a US website.

I have attended many courses and found KT botox training course was by far the best. We even had a complimentary business lecture at the end of the day which was a real eye opener
