What is the BIMAC Board accreditation and qualification?

BIMAC and its Education Accreditation Commission is interested in assisting individuals and academies to validate their degrees, validate their certificates and recognize earned credits on an international scale. 

The BIMAC qualification in Clinical Aesthetic Injectable Therapy for Salons, Centers and Training Provider Academies are designed to enable education centers / practitioners to provide the highest standards of patient, client and learner care during all stages of delivering  aesthetic injectable therapies and trainings.

To this end we have prepared a 100% online accreditation and degree validation procedure that will certify the credit and degree equivalency of the applicants' certification and of all BIMAC accredited institutions. This accreditation and degree validation will also endorse the external quality review of the degree, institution and program of study.

BIMAC Board considers this accreditations and degree validation service to be an important and constructive process to facilitate the acceptance of the degrees and credits.

The BIMAC  (Board of International Medical Aesthetic Certification ) is an internationally recognized quality standard model for training providers, academies and individual professionals.  

BIMAC accreditation proves that the accreditation has been given on the result that operating standards have been voluntarily and rigorously tested. Our international accreditation enables students to obtain a realistic picture of the accredited institution in terms of quality, resources, student support and ethics.

Note that accreditation is a voluntary and non governmental process. No accreditation in the world can provide automatic acceptance and degree validation of the credits earned at other institutions, nor does it guarantee the acceptance of graduates by employers. Acceptance of learners or graduates is always the prerogative of the receiving institution or employer.
