Live, In-Person Course + Hands-On Clinical Training with Patient Models

Join us for a comprehensive introduction to cosmetic neurotoxin and become certified to treat your own patients with FDA approved neurotoxins: Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Juveau.

This course is offered in two parts.

First, our master injector and head of faculty, Tara Delle Chiaie MSN, FNP-BC, APRN, will introduce you to the history of cosmetic neurotoxins, their indications for use, reconstitution, and injection patterns.

In the second half, DCCM™ Academy will supply all students with product and patient models for clinical hands on practice. All injections will be performed by students under one-on-one guidance from Tara Delle Chiaie, APRN. This portion of the course is absolutely crucial for students to become comfortable with the needle and build injecting confidence, all while learning to uphold the highest standards of patient safety.

DCCM™ Academy is proud to offer the most comprehensive courses in the area and we are honored to have students join us from across the United States and abroad.

Will I earn CEU’s for the course?

Yes, it is accredited for 10 CEUS. You will receive an email containing your link to claim credit after your successful completion of the class and course evaluation.

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 you NH license at least 4 weeks prior to the class.

What is your cancellation policy? 

There are absolutely no cancelations nor refunds for courses. There are costs that we incur to be sure you have an engaging and educational experience and we need to be able to recoup those. Please be sure you have read our full cancellation policy below and are 100% committed to the training date 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.

Student Cancellation Policy

All classes, observation days, private and group trainings are NON-refundable.

We want to start out by saying we respect each and every one of you, therefore, this policy is not in place to punish you but to keep our Academy thriving so that we can continue to educate and empower the medical community.  We incur many costs to operate an accredited academy and none of our costs are refundable once you register.  Therefore, we will not make any exceptions to this policy.  When you register online you are acknowledging and signing this student cancelation document.  By doing so you are responsible for all of your prerequisite requirements and adherence to the late cancellation/no show policy.   Throughout the policy, we will do our best to explain to you why we have the policy in place.  

Be sure you have read the FAQ section and the entire course descriptions as well as prerequisites prior to registering for any classes at DCCM™.  

All students are required to have a credit card kept on file. Payments are required in full at the time of signing up to reserve your spot in the class.  Until we have payment, we do not guarantee any availability. We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, Debit Cards, checks, cash, and gift certificates. 

Proof of Licensure is Required

4 weeks prior to the start of class or your private training we require a copy of your unencumbered NH state nursing or medical license.

If we are traveling out of town to your facility; then we need a copy of your state license.  If you are not able to satisfy this requirement 4 weeks prior to the start of class/training 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 because it is a state law. We understand how long and how hard each and every one works for their license, so we do not want you to jeopardize it in any way. 

Returned Checks/Insufficient Funds: 

A $50.00 fee will be charged for returned checks and the balance of that day’s services will be charged to your credit card on file. A 20% charge will be applied to any unpaid balances for every 30 days past due. We reserve the right to apply this charge to any credit card that you have on file with Surface Medical Esthetics, PLLC, without notice. All students are required to keep a valid credit card number on file.

Balances due to insufficient funds as well as due to Late Cancel/No Show fees will remain on your account and a 20% charge will be applied to any unpaid balances for every 30 days past due. No further appointments will be scheduled until the balance is paid in full.
