What is IV Infusion Therapy?
IV infusion therapy is a very popular delivery method for fluids and medication. “IV” stands for intravenous, which means it’s administered through the veins. The fluid that contains vitamins and minerals or medication is delivered via an IV drip or injection into the vein, which allows the therapy to move quickly through your bloodstream.
This course is suitable for both medics and non-medics.

1-day of theory plus 1-day of practical training in academy.
The theory is undertaken on our student friendly eLearning portal. We recommend 8 -16 hours online study. On the practical day, theory will be clarified, enabling us to focus more on the practical hands-on training.
Your comprehensive hands-on training will be supervised by highly skilled and experienced aesthetic trainers in small groups to maximize retention of knowledge. You will see demonstrations before moving onto models. Plenty of time is allocated to this part of the day so that you are confident to practice independently afterwards.
You are required to supply at least one model to cover an IV Infusion. If you are unable to provide models, please let us know upon booking so we can assist where possible with alternative options.
To meet industry standards a professional beauty uniform or scrubs are our preferred option. If you are yet to purchase salon/clinic uniform, plain black clothing is acceptable. Long sleeves must be rolled up to prevent cross contamination, jewellery must be removed, hair should be tied up, nails must be kept short, and all shoes must be closed toe. Flip flops are not suitable.
