How Does TITAN Support Your Journey into Aesthetics?
Aesthetic medicine is a unique specialty, but there are no academic training programs to support your education and preparation for a career in aesthetic medicine. So TITAN created the Injector Preparation Program to help you get a strong foundation. In this proprietary program, you will spend about 40 hours learning about the industry, facial anatomy and the “why” behind injection procedures so that you are ready for a new career. Just like in Nursing or PA school, you don’t start with your clinical rotations and in aesthetic medicine, you shouldn’t start with hands-on training. Prepare by learning foundational skills first, then show potential employers that you understand the industry and have invested in yourself. Then they will want to invest in you!
There are many training programs that claim to “certify” you in aesthetics. But the only true certification is the CANS exam, a board certification from the PSNB. TITAN Placement coaches know this type of information and can guide you to the right hands-on training where you get clinical instruction from practicing injectors. And when you choose Course #1 WITH COACHING, you get a TITAN Placement Coach to support your journey from preparation to training to getting that first job. You receive resumé creation support, interviewing guidance, job search support, post-interview coaching and contract review input so that you aren’t alone as you make this transition. Only TITAN provides coaching while you are training to help you feel good about your new career!
Learning doesn’t stop when you get a job but continues throughout your aesthetic career. But social media and the internet has so much random content that it is hard to know what to pay attention to and what is just plain scary! TITAN’s educational platforms provide ongoing learning content that you can trust. Whether it is through the TITAN Injector Membership program or other TITAN-supported learning activities, you will know that the information shared “by injectors, for injectors” will be clinically-sound information to support safe and effective treatment outcomes throughout your career. You will probably also develop some great networking connections so you can have a strong network of mentors and colleagues in the industry.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Aesthetic medicine is probably the fastest growing area of medicine, yet there are no academic training programs or residencies to guide your training. It seems that every state has different laws about who can inject and how the practices can be run, so you need to learn much more than injecting skills. You need to know the laws in your state as well as learn about compensation, marketing, patient education and more. Aesthetic jobs are not 9-5, involve a lot of ongoing training and take a long time to build a patient base. You need to truly look at this as training in a new medical specialty and that can’t be done in a weekend.

TITAN believes that training starts with developing a strong clinical foundation of knowledge about aesthetic medicine. TITAN’s Clinical Director, Kevin Harrington, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, leads the TITAN faculty of actively practicing injectors while supporting developing injectors in Course #2, “Teaching Your Brain to Inject”. Kevin is on faculty for both Allergan and Galderma and also is a faculty trainer for the Academy for Injection Anatomy cadaver program developed by Chris Surek, MD. With his strong clinical background and industry knowledge, Kevin and his faculty team can mentor prospective injectors while learning. As previous trainers have said, everyone wants “Kevin in their pocket” as a resource!
The great “catch-22” in aesthetic injecting has always been that employers want trained injectors, but it is very hard to get a job without experience. So while TITAN cannot guarantee that you will get a job when you complete your training, we do support you with coaching that includes resume creation, interview guidance, contract negotiation/review support, industry knowledge and most other questions that you can think of! We also have connections with many aesthetic practices and aesthetic recruiters to help you find a job if you need that additional assistance.
