BOTOX GROUP TRAINING CLASSES
DCCM’s Neurotoxin (Botox) training course is designed for medical professionals who have a desire to understand the basics of neurotoxins. We also offer an advanced course after 6 months to 1 year of injecting post original certification with the basic course. The basic and advanced Neurotoxin (Botox) training courses include hands-on training with live models as well as didactic training led by Tara our medical aesthetic expert.
After your successful completion of the course, we offer a mentorship program to be sure you are comfortable with your new skills on your own.
DCCM provides a comprehensive, hands-on neurotoxin ( Botox) aesthetic training course. Participants will engage in an extensive 8+ hour training. Models and products are provided for the course. However, we encourage participants to bring their own models to the training so they can inject their peers. We do charge our models for the product so that the students do not have to absorb the additional charge. Therefore, should you bring your own models they will be charged accordingly.
Attendees will receive a course manual that consists of course content, anatomic renderings, forms such as history, consent, and policy/procedure. The manual is an amazingly illustrated book with artwork specifically designed for the training by Tara and Kevin Cease (the famous medical artist). Your manual will keep you going for years and will be a strong foundation as you develop your new knowledge. Medical professionals also have the opportunity to earn CE credits or CME credits. A certificate of Completion will be provided after your successful completion of the course.
This activity is intended to meet the educational needs of medical providers, MD, DO, APRN, RN, PA, LPN, and Dentists. After this course, the target audience will advance in aesthetic enhancement procedures with regards to facial assessment and the administration of Botulinum Toxin A.
Our one-day intensive neurotoxin certification course is designed for medical professionals.

PREREQUISITE FOR ALL TRAINING
RN, NP, MD, DO, current and unencumbered licensure in the state of NH. NH is a mandatory license state which means to participate in the hands-on portion of our course you must hold your NH license. The turn around time is generally a few weeks to receive your reciprocal license. Don’t forget to check to see if your current state license participates in the compact.
We love to educate and share but if you are looking to become employed within close proximity to our Academy or Spa our Non compete will preclude you from doing such and perhaps our training may not be best suited for you.
How much is the course?
$1400 for Botox, $1800 for Filler, $3000 for private training
How long is the course?
8 hours with a working lunch for our courses and 4 hours for our private training
Where is it held?
822 Lafayette Rd Suite 4
Hampton NH 03842
Will I earn CEU’s for the course?
Yes, it is accredited for 8 CEUS. You will receive an email containing your link with 5 business days after your successful completion of the class.
Will I receive a Certificate?
Yes, you will receive a certificate to showcase the successful completion of your training from DCCM Academy.
Do I have to be licensed in the state to participate in the course?
YES. NH is a mandatory license state which means to participate in the hands-on portion of our course you must hold your NH license or be a part of the compact. The turn around time is generally a few weeks with the NH Board of Nursing to receive your reciprocal license. The NH board of nursing is very easy to work with and they have a quick and easy PowerPoint of step by step directions to apply (it’s only a few steps). Before you apply for your NH license don’t forget to see if your current state license participates in the compact. If you do not get your license in time, you may still attend the course and then come back next month to attend the hands-on portion once you are licensed. It is recommended that you apply for your NH license at least 4 weeks prior to the class.
Is there a cancelation policy?
YES. There are absolutely no cancelations within 4 weeks of the class date. You may, however, transfer your class date once within that time frame as we understand life happens. Should you wish to unenroll prior to the 4 weeks deadline you may do so but there is a $200 charge to process all refunds. You will be refunded back to the card on file minus the $200. Please note that some credit cards can take up to 2 weeks to process (this is not a DCCM delay, this is just the time we have noticed it takes to turn around refunds with certain credit cards). You may be wondering why we take two hundred dollars. I would be wondering the same thing. Once you are enrolled in the course; manuals are ordered, CEU applications are immediately submitted, catering and many other items are immediately purchased and applied for upon your enrollment in the course. All of these items are non-refundable to us so therefore we must recoup that cost if you decide this is not the right time for you. These are costs that we incur to be sure you have a wonderful and educational experience. Be sure you are 100 % committed to the training and preparation before you register.
Do I need to show proof of Licensure?
YES, 4 weeks prior to the start of class we require a copy of your unencumbered NH state nursing or medical license. If you are not able to satisfy this requirement 4 weeks prior to the start of class you will forfeit your course fee and be dropped from the class. If there is a delay in the licensure process on the states end you may still attend the course and then come back for the live hands-on portion when you are fully licensed in NH. We are strict about this not to be difficult on you but, it is a state law. We understand how long and how hard each and everyone works for their license so we do not want you to jeopardize it in any way.
Do I need to bring product?
No, you do not. We provide all of the product for you.
Do I need to bring Models?
It is highly recommended that you bring your own models. We will guarantee two models per student. However, if you can obtain your own models we will allow each student a total of 6 models per course. This is your opportunity to begin your client list and get the public excited about what you are doing. You have the opportunity to come to visit us when we schedule your model’s follow-ups as well. The models will have their follow up appointment 2 weeks after the course according to Tara’s schedule. We strongly recommend you join us for the models follow up as it is when you are able to see exactly what you did with your injections. There are times when models cancel or get sick or something prevents them from coming in. If you do not inject two models on your training day, we will have you come back on another day and inject two models. We do guarantee you two models minimum.
How much do models pay?
Models will pay $10 per unit (Botox price is typically $14.00). There is no limit to the treatment areas for the models. They can have their crows feet, forehead and frown lines treated. We charge the models so you don’t have to incur the cost of the product. Models save $100 per syringe on filler.
Can the student get Botox and filler on training days?
Yes, you may. We actually strongly encourage this as it gives you perspective as to what your clients will go through. You can have another student inject you at the training for $9.00 per unit or you may request Tara for $10 per unit. You will save $100 per syringe of filler. These prices are for training days only.
Do I need to bring my own lunch?
We provide water, coffee, a light morning snack and lunch for all students.
Am I certified?
After successful completion of the course, you will be provided with a certificate of completion for your 8-hour training.
Can I register within 4 weeks of the class date?
YES, However should you be enrolling within the 4 week time frame you must already be licensed in NH or be a part of a compact state. You further acknowledge that there is no refund at this time. Lastly, You will be required to secure your own models for the class and DCCM Academy will not guarantee live models within a short registration period (less than 4 weeks).
Is there additional support after the course?
Yes, you will receive 2 months’ worth of FREE membership (valued at $150 per month). This is a time when newbies are overwhelmed and have a million questions. So, Tara is available to help you get started in the first two months. After that, you may provide a credit card to be kept on file and we will bill you for $150 per month. You may unenroll at any time. However, no refunds or partial credits are given.
