Course Testimonials

“As a physician, I have spent my professional life attending continuing education events. I was recently at “the botox course”, and I found it to be the best education I have ever received. The small class size, in combination with highly educated and personable educators, was beyond compare. The information provided, supervised injection practice, and unrushed opportunities to ask questions makes me feel totally comfortable to safely start my practice with neuromodulator injections. Hats off to this team.”

— DR. JOHN JEFFERY, MD, FRCPC

“As a former academic physician currently retraining in aesthetic medicine, this has been my fifth injectables course from various organizational bodies across Canada, I can attest to the botox course being next level; above and beyond all others. This course offers an extensive practical component that is evidence based and patient centered. There is also an exceptional focus on anatomy, physiology and patient safety. The instructors (Nurse Becky, Nurse Mandeep and Anne) were so professional and continuously offered confidence boosting guidance and clinical pearls. Last but not least, it has been an honour to have been taught by Dr. Andrew Dargie, a true master of this artful medicine, dedicated to upholding all learners to the highest standard of practice for the benefits of patients.”

— DR. VERONIQUE DORVAL, MD, FRCP, BSC, MS

“I have taken a few courses in Neuromodulators and never felt confident when I left them. The Botox Course went over and above my expectations. The staff are experts in the industry with the goal of having the best injectors out there. We were provided with just the right amount of anatomy and a tonne of opportunity to inject with constructive feedback given and opportunity to ask questions in a comfortable environment. Highly highly recommend.”

— VANESSA PROZNICK-FRANSOO, RN

“This was truly the greatest course I have ever attended. I did the Botox and Filler course and couldn’t be happier. It was truly a great experience for me and I have met some stunning people in the process. We were educated on anatomy in great detail and this made me comfortable to know that I can be a safe injector. The best of all is that we got a lot of hands on experience and I am comfortable injecting both botox and fillers. We were also educated and informed on best business practices and advice was given on how to get started. The educators are awesome people with expert knowledge and experience in their field and I think it is very generous of them to share years of experience in this field with us.”

— DR. MARNA HAGEN, MD, CCFP

“I spent MONTHS researching places throughout Canada where I could take neuromodulator training. I compared, prices, reviews, and spoke to people who had taken courses at different places. After a phone call with Anne, I ultimately decided to register for the botox course. For two months I wondered if I had made the right decision, after all it is a huge investment, both financially and personally. I completed the training last weekend with Dr. Dargie and Nurse Rebekah and the course exceeded my expectations! In fact I wish it was more than 2 days because it was so much fun! I can’t wait to attend the filler course in November!”

— ALYSHA WHITLOCK, RN

I felt at ease with asking questions. The whole team is very knowledgeable and approachable. I would highly recommend this course.”

— RHIANNON BERKE, RN

“The Calgary botox course was beyond my expectations. It was well organized and easy to follow. I really feel it has prepared me to be more than competent at injecting botox both cosmetically and for medical uses. Dr. Dargie and his team (Anne and Rebekah) went out of their way to make sure everyone felt comfortable and confident. I would recommend this course to anyone interested in obtaining these skills. Dr. Dargie made the course material interesting and relevant. His slides were well thought out and detailed. Anne also went into the business aspect of botox and cosmetics which was very helpful.

In addition to the course material, we also had lots of hands on experience with most students injecting four or more patients. It was a non-intimidating environment where everyone felt free to ask questions when necessary.

I look forward to taking further cosmetics courses from this group of highly trained individuals. ”

— DR. LAURIE ROSS, MD, CCFPC

“I recently attended the botox course with Dr. Dargie. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wishes to implement this into their practice.

The numerous benefits of treatment are well highlighted and discussed, as is the individual approach to diagnosing and dosing. Thanks again Andrew and Anne!”

— DR. STEVE CALDER, DENTIST

“The botox course was really well put together. Before the course even began the team was readily available to answer my questions and concerns. The specifics of the course were clearly outlined, and on the day of the course, they had staff waiting to show us where to go. The course was well organized and the theory complimented the practice component of the course nicely. The hands-on experience was my favourite. It was provided in a stress-free and supportive environment, I left feeling confident as a new injector. Thank you Dr. Dargie, Rebekah, and Anne for all of your hard work. I look forward to learning more from your team as you expand the program!”

— STEFANIE O'REILLY, NP

“I have been interested in learning therapeutic and cosmetic neuromodulator injections for a long time. After extensive research into various courses available in Canada and the USA, I decided to take the course offered by “the botox course”. Not only was it very professional, it provided all of the necessary knowledge and competency to start practicing immediately. There was adequate hands on experience and it did not require countless hours and travel to obtain sufficient experience. Dr. Dargie and his associates, were a delight and I would highly recommend this course.”

— DR. CHARLENE KENNEDY, BSC, MD, FCFP

“I was really impressed with the course all around. It covered many of the things I wanted to incorporate into my practice, which is primary therapeutic management plans and options. It was also a very comprehensive approach to cosmetic neuromodulator therapy. I really appreciated the didactic teaching sessions and I felt ready when we started the hands on practice. The hands on was well supervised, there was lots of opportunity and I feel far more confident in doing it and confident enough to start incorporating it into my practice. I went into the course with a list of expectations and hopes of what I would come away with in terms of looking at this from a medical practice and business perspective, and they provided me with everything that I was hoping for including how to incorporate this into my business, insurance implications, sourcing and managing product. All in all, I was really impressed, staff was very professional and it was a lot of fun.”

— DR. DANIEL RUTTLE, MD

“Before I arrived at the course, I had high expectations and they not only met my expectations but exceeded them! The course was well thought out, it didn’t have any redundant or unnecessary information, it got right to the point. It was a concise approach because they told me exactly what I need to do. My final impression, I think it was a very adequate course, I feel prepared, I feel ready and I am very excited to get into a more cosmetic practice! ”

— TIFFANY WALKER, PA

“I cannot say enough good things about this course. It’s all encompassing, detailed, direct, and exciting. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I went in knowing very little about neuromodulators, and left feeling ready to start a business. There was plenty of live demonstrations, and hands on experience. Dr. Dargie, Rebekah, and Anne know their stuff. They work well as a team, and have created the best course I have ever been to. The small class size meant there was plenty of mentoring throughout, and you don’t get lost in a sea of people. The kit they send you with has all that you need. They have literally made it possible to walk away and get started. Thank you to everyone at the botox course!”

— BRIANNA JOHANSON, RN

“I attended the botox course in Calgary in Nov 2019. This course was so enjoyable in every way! Dr. Dargie, Mandeep (RN), and Anne, are such a great team of educators! This 2 day course is jam packed with all the information you need to be a confident neuromodulator injector. I felt like I could start working the next day, with the confidence and skills learned. My tip would be to register early for both the botox course AND the filler course, as they fill up quickly and you won’t want to miss this awesome opportunity.”

— PAULA GHASHGHAEI ABDI, RN

“When selecting the perfect Neuromodulator course to invest in, I did plenty of research. I wanted a course that was all encompassing and gave me not only the fundamentals of neuromodulators, but I wanted tools for business management – being a clinical RN, this is a whole new world for me. After many hours researching my options, I took a risk on the Botox Course and I was pleasantly surprised!

Great two day course which included anatomy, landmarking, handling and injecting Botox, live practice with patients – from consultation to post-care, as well as business tips and tricks! It was an intimate group which really allowed for live feedback and attentiveness from Dr. Dargie and Mandeep, RN. Anne did a spectacular job answering our business questions and was very approachable. The two days were very well utilized.

Overall, AWESOME course and great group of people!”
