Delegate feedback

We are proud of the training we offer – but don’t take our word for it. Below are some of the many satisfied customers who have benefited from our courses:

Ali Gatick

They are very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions you may have. Being able to practice all three procedures on live models has really built my confidence. The support I have had since my training has been absolutely amazing!

Rachel Penney

An excellent learning experience. A relaxed and professional environment to learn with plenty of hands-on practice during the day. Highly recommended these guys to learn and grow with.

Bryony Clements

I couldn’t recommend this amazing training academy more highly. Astra is an incredible trainer, hugely knowledgeable and very supportive. I left the training day feeling confident to offer these procedures in my own clinic. I can’t wait to train with Astra again. Thank you!

Julie Frost

I would definitely recommend Lisa and Astra's training. I completed the foundation course and found the information, resources and experience invaluable. Both trainers and highly skilled and are great at helping people get started. Thank-you! You have inspired me!

Carly Jane

I highly recommend Astra and Lisa at Devon & Cornwall training academy. They have provided a fantastic training session on Peri oral rejuvenation and advanced lip techniques. I felt I achieved all of the competencies I required and had lots of practice mastering the techniques which were taught. I will be returning!

Karina Williams

I completed the cheek and mid-facelift course yesterday with Astra. It was by far the best course I had been on! There was enough theory and she was able to answer any questions. There was plenty of hands-on practice with live models which I find really important and severely lacks from the big training companies!! Lunch was also included which was of great standard! I feel more than ready to start offering these treatments, thanks for a great course!

Nina Prisk

I attended the advanced mid-face course and was honestly so impressed with the teaching from Astra. Not only is she very knowledgeable and skilled, but she is also so personable, and learning from her felt very easy! The small group of delegates alongside many models meant we were able to practice until we were completely competent. I will definitely be returning for more courses in the future.
