Professionals who have gained many years clinical experience performing dermal therapies may want to achieve a formal qualification, though don’t feel they should have to ‘re-train’. AACDS recognises the knowledge and skills obtained through clinical experience and therefore invite suitable candidates to apply for recognition of prior learning (RPL).

Recognition of Prior Learning

Candidates who have been performing dermal therapies in a clinical environment can apply for RPL for unit 2.2 Dermal Science Practical. This usually involves an assessment based on observation for each dermal therapy procedure.

AACDS Can Come to You

To help save time and expense, RPL can be conducted in your own clinic by one of the AACDS Practical Trainers/Assessors. Travel expenses and accommodation may apply.

Professional Development for Your Clinical Staff

To assist clinic owners and managers in meeting the needs of staff training and education, AACDS provides online Professional Development Packages allowing your staff to study at home on an individual basis or in the clinic as a team.

AACDS Professional Development Packages can be customised to meet the needs of your clinical staff. Packages can include only one or two units or whole qualifications, and discounts are provided when three or more staff members enrol.

I put all my clinical staff through an AACDS course for the purpose of professional development. The AACDS course material is relevant, professional and well recognised. Their online program allowed my staff to commence their studies at anytime and without having to take time off away from the clinic.
