About Us

In 2001, internationally-recognised Consultant Plastic Surgeon Mr Adrian Richards returned to the UK after completing advanced training in aesthetic techniques in Australia and the US. He quickly realised there were no quality training courses for non-surgical techniques available in the UK. It was impossible to get adequate training without going abroad – so he set out to change this.

“My goal with Cosmetic Courses was to offer the highest quality training in Botox and dermal fillers to medical professionals in the UK. Over the years, we’ve gone from strength to strength, now offering 20 different aesthetic training courses from 7 locations across the UK.

To date we have trained and mentored over 21,500 medical professionals to set up their own successful aesthetic clinics so they can offer the most up-to-date non-surgical techniques to their patients.” – Mr Adrian Richards

Why is Cosmetic Courses the right training provider for you?

We have years of experience in medical aesthetic teaching but what does that mean for you? It means we know exactly how to design and deliver a first class training programme and we understand what it takes to make you a successful aesthetic practitioner. Over the year we have been training we have seen 1000’s of delegates come through our doors,  with 50% citing their reason for choosing us was due to ‘recommendations from a colleague’. This high volume of delegates choosing us as their training provider and the positive comments we receive on a regular basis is a testament to the quality of our training.

Mr Richards’ handpicked team of aesthetic trainers includes Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, ENT Surgeons, Aesthetic Doctors, Dentists and Nurses who have all excelled in their respective fields. All of our trainers have either owned or worked in established aesthetic clinics, which has given them a comprehensive understanding of the skills required to become a successful aesthetic practitioner and many also lecture with leading universities. In a fast-moving and dynamic industry, we understand the need to stay at the forefront of aesthetic knowledge. To ensure our trainers are completely up to speed with developments in the industry they all regularly attend national and international training courses, conferences and masterclasses to familiarise themselves with the very latest products and techniques. Many of our trainers actively contribute to educational articles in industry journals and are keen members of relevant independent aesthetic associations (i.e BACN) enabling them to continue to offer best practice advice and work safely in line with the necessary guidelines.

From experience, we understand that people thrive in different learning environments, so flexibility is key. Our training is delivered through a combination of theory, videos, demonstrations and practical hands-on, so there is something to suit all learning types – visual, physical and verbal and provides you with a comprehensive understanding of the treatments whilst gaining practical competency.

We pride ourselves on our unique bespoke courses, designed to meet your individual requirements. The duration of these courses can be tailored to both your needs and budget, allowing a dedicated amount of time for each topic.

Our team will always take the time to understand your requirements and select the best trainer and most appropriate patients in order to optimise your overall training experience.
