This Level 4 Skin Needling Course covers dermapen and microneedling rollers. This course is perfect if you want to introduce micro needling, derma rollers or dermapen into your clinic or add another qualification onto your CV. Skin needling is fast growing in popularity, and for good reason: it is a highly effective anti-ageing treatment that targets fine lines, acne scars and pigmentation.

Unit 1: Know safety considerations when providing skin needling treatments

Unit 2: Be able to prepare for Level 4 Certificate Skin Needling

Unit 3: Know the relevant anatomy, physiology & pathologies relevant to skin needling

Entry Requirements:

Level 4 Skin Needling course requires you to have a minimum of Level 3. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.

Students will require a good command of spoken and written English to complete the VTCT qualification.


Course Structure:

Much of the Level 4 Skin Needling qualification is completed as online-study, making this an ideal route for those who wish to study flexibly around other commitments. Practical training days at your chosen location will run from 10am-4pm with a short break for lunch.


Assessment is continuous and consists of practical assessments, oral questions, tests and written assignments. The collation of all the assessments will be contained in a portfolio which will contain all document feedback sheets, written assessment/projects/assignments.

Once you have completed all training and coursework, you will arrange to attend a multiple choice written assessment day and practical assessment days to achieve your VTCT qualification.



After completing the course, you will receive your VTCT qualification, a Government-approved Awarding Body, recognised across the world which is fully insurable.


Initially, you will receive a diploma certificate issued by us. This not only demonstrates your commitment to the training, but also allows you to obtain Public Liability insurance so you can start offering treatments to paying clients from home or mobile. You will then receive your VTCT qualification certificate (this can take up to 12 weeks to be released from the awarding body VTCT).
