While we do not guarantee job placement we are confident that our reputation speaks for itself. Our commitment to ethical, client-centered, science-based skin care is unmatched and we can’t wait for you to experience the difference BIMA training will make in your professional practice.

There are many exciting and lucrative job opportunities in the medical aesthetics field. Upon completing the course you will be certified to work in a medispa, clinic, or doctor’s office.

Our graduates say their BIMA certification gives them professional credibility, confidence and the opportunity for more financial growth.

4. What do you mean by “ethical practices”?

BIMA is guided by Marie Bertrand’s vision of a safe and ethical medispa industry. She is against offering any treatments or products a client doesn’t need; making the practitioner rich when the client isn’t getting the results they deserve is unfair. Marie believes that everyone can flourish in the medispa business – practitioners and clients can both feel proud of the results.
