important notes

We offer a 2 day PMU to SMP conversion course for practicing permanent makeup technicians, and a 3 day course for new technicians with no prior experience, wishing to start a career in scalp micropigmentation.

All courses take place at our Manchester City Centre training school. Optional starter kits are available including machine at £500 + VAT if required.

MCR Academy is a leading scalp micropigmentation training school, providing quality learning experiences with multiple live models and exceptional theory preparation. We also provide 6 months of post-training support to ensure the best and most confident start in this exciting new field.

certifications & insurance

Our courses are fully accredited by IPHM, enabling students to obtain insurance if they do not already have a policy in place.

All successful students receive a certificate of attendance, and a completion certificate with the IPHM and CPD certification marks upon submission of case study work. New technicians taking our 3 day course also receive two additional certificates in bloodborne pathogens (BBP) and infection control.

3 day scalp course for new technicians - £1500

Scalp micropigmentation is the fastest growing solution for hair loss in modern history. SMP produces long lasting and dependable results, and treatments are more accessible for customers than traditional options like hair transplant surgery, with an average treatment quotation in the United Kingdom of £1500-2000.

Our 3 day scalp training course is designed for new technicians wanting to start a new career in scalp micropigmentation. There are no entry requirements, with trainees coming from a wide range of backgrounds.

The purpose of this course is to enable you to perform SMP confidently and competently on your own. We cover the essential basics like hygiene, machine and workstation setup, pigment and needle selection and the core techniques required to perform treatments.

Our course is backed with 6 months ongoing support, insurable accreditation from IPHM and certification to prove your completion of this training course.

2 day pmu to smp conversion course - £1200

This 2 day conversion course is perfect for existing permanent makeup artists who want to add scalp micropigmentation to their service list. 

Unlike our 3 day beginners course that includes essential theory in skin anatomy, BBP and infection control, this 2 day course dives straight into scalp micropigmentation pigments, needle selection, techniques and work on live models.

This course is packed with everything you will need to know and more, with a bonus module about density enhancement treatments, scar camouflage and beard micropigmentation (FMP).

Students are taught how to complete a scalp micropigmentation treatment from start to finish from the initial consultation and booking stage, the treatment process itself and aftercare and service guidelines when the treatment is complete.
