Scalp Micropigmentation (SMP) Training Course

Scalp Culture offer a thorough, intensive, hands on Scalp Micropigmentation training course tailer to the trainees experience, from no experience at all, to aesthetic practitioners and tattoo artists looking to further their skills. Our SMP training course is the most detailed available and insures that our trainees enter the industry with the confidence and skill set to produce world class results. Our training courses are taught by some of the longest serving and most highly skilled SMP practitioners in the world.

On this course you will learn all the fundamental skills to help you perform SMP treatments from The scalp Culture Team.


Scalp Culture are one of the only, if not the only SMP training provider to offer a true level 4 accreditation in SMP. We are officially recognised by Government licensing bodies and insurance companies around the world. Level 4 SMP accreditation can become quite confusing for trainees as some training providers state that they offer a Level 4 accreditation, but upon checking with the accrediting bodies themselves, it quickly transpires that the training course is not level 4 accredited in SMP, but in fact it’s a level 4 accreditation in permanent make up. Scalp Micropigmentation is different to permanent make up and a level 4 accreditation in SMP itself should be obtained.

At Scalp Culture, we are a transparent company and we are happy to advise our trainees on our level 4 accreditation which can then be verified by local councils and Government licensing bodies.

On completion of our training course you will received your certificate and be eligible to apply for insurance and local authority registration.
