Tattoo Removal (NVQ Level 5) is carried out onsite for 3 days. Please note... we aim to give the highest standard of training, if you feel you need more time or more practical training you can join more practical classes free of charge.

After completing your course you will need to come back to demonstrate your abilities in front of an ITEC examiner and complete an exam.
