Our 3-day courses are accredited with the British Institute of Professional Photography (BIPP: www.bipp.com). Students who pass the assessment on Day 3 will be eligible to apply for licentiate membership of BIPP which awards the “LBIPP” post-nominal.
Each course is conducted by experienced photographers and doctors: all are BIPP-qualified. The courses attract 18 CPD points via the Faculty of Forensic and Legal Medicine (FFLM) in London (www.fflm.ac.uk) and are approximately 50% theory and 50% practical. We cover ethical and legal issues such as consent, confidentiality, data protection and GMC guidelines.
All equipment is provided. We use Nikon D3400 SLR cameras with the settings in “manual”. Make-up artists reproduce injuries such as erythema, bruises, scars and abrasions by using fake blood, skin wax and make-up: we practise on each other for this!
There is a maximum of 12 students per course with much of the practical work involving pairing-up to help with learning. If you require a bespoke training course at a specific venue and date, we will be happy to discuss this: please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
NB: Additional 15% discount until 28th Feb 2018 using the Booking Code PFFeb2018
