The VTCT Level 2 Award in Infection Prevention (COVID-19) for Clinical Aesthetics is a knowledge-based qualification aimed at clinical aesthetic practitioners who need to understand the COVID-19 infection prevention methods required in the working environment in order to maintain high levels of health and safety in the provision of their services. This course must be completed before embarking on any of our other VTCT courses.
This qualification is informed by national and international guidelines in relation to COVID-19. Throughout this qualification, learners will develop knowledge on the importance of social responsibility, the causes, transmission and effects of COVID-19, and the methods used to control transmission, such as correct hand hygiene and the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). They will also gain an understanding of the safe working practices required in the clinic environment in order to protect themselves and their patients.
The primary purpose of this qualification is to prepare learners to progress to further qualifications within their chosen discipline with an understanding of the role of infection prevention in relation to COVID-19.
