Skin Penetration Treatments

Our Maintain Infection Prevention for Skin Penetration Treatments Course (HLTINF005) is Nationally Recognised.  It is specifically for those who undertake any skin penetration treatments, including tattooing, piercing and laser and is a mandatory requirement in accordance with many local councils and governments.
