Gurnam has a vast amount of knowledge and experience with facial aesthetics yet he still teaches with humility and inspires confidence in his delegates. Having attended many hands on facial aesthetics courses over the years, Gurnam is among the best that I have had experience of teaching me and I will definitely be attending more of his courses in future.

– Paul – Dentist, Bristol

Dr. Gurnam Virdi is an exceptional aesthetic practitioner and trainer. He has experience in plastic surgery and very focused on safe practice and understanding the danger zones. He breaks things down in easy parts and exudes confidence and kindness. Therefore, you feel comfortable in taking on difficult procedures such as temples and forehead injections. I left feeling confident and a master in my art. He knows any procedure and other possible methods to achieve the best results. I cannot recommend and thank Dr. Virdi enough. Finally and importantly there was no rush during procedures and he is constantly sharing very important nuggets. You get a lot of value for your money and some more.

– Tania – Nurse, Derbyshire

Gurnam is an Excellent Teacher & Mentor! He truly is an Expert in the Field! If I didn’t understand something he would show me & explain in different ways. Gurnam and his team: Neelam & Kanika made me feel really welcome, relaxed & comfortable to ask as many questions that I needed to. The advice & support I have gained has been invaluable! I had plenty of hands on experience on live models in which Gurnam helped me to build my confidence from shaky hands with the first injection by not knowing where exactly to inject or how deep to inject ; to feeling quite relaxed at the end of the course. Being able to inject different techniques on live models helped me put the theory into practise which increased my confidence immensely. I most definitely recommend Academy of Aesthetic Medicine to all healthcare professionals who are looking to go down the Aesthetics route. You will receive Outstanding Service, Extremely Useful Advice & Individualised Support on all aspects of Aesthetics. The Course & Experience surpassed all expectations I had. You most definitely will not be let down!

I would highly recommend Dr Gurnam on his expert training, I have attended many aesthetic courses in the past run by Dr’s and often felt a little intimidated with their presence, but have to say Dr Gurnam made me feel at ease immediately, gave reassurances throughout, answered all questions with clear expertise and knowledge to support,gave honest true opinions. A clear eye for precision and detail. Can highly recommend and will defiantly be attending future training.

– Joanne – Midwife, Barnsley

I had an absolutely fantastic learning opportunity with Dr Virdi, he was extremely professional and patient. All questions were answered and he expertly guided me through the client journey from consultation where a treatment plan was formed, with the client explaining the rationale for his approach. Through to carrying out the procedure with the correct technique and product to use for maximum results. His teaching style was relaxed and supportive, demonstrating in depth knowledge, I would highly recommend and would certainly undertake further training.

– Emma – Nurse, Sheffield

I have just attended a mid face augmentation training day with Dr. Gurnam and I was truly blown away by his teaching techniques, his knowledge and approachability. I have attended many courses but by far Dr. Gurnam has been the best. He even gave his personal number to us all so that we could contact him at any time with any issues. I would strongly recommend him!

– Lina – Dentist, Leicester

Following a bespoke training day with Dr GV I am very impressed in his impecable knowledge and the emphasis on safety. Outstanding day and I will definitely be back. After training in tear trough with 2 different companies and walking away feeling very disappointed Dr GV made me feel safe and confident in my ability. Thank you for sharing knowlege with us all.

– Gemma – Nurse, Barnsley

I have recently completed the foundation module, i am very pleased with the outcome. Dr virdi was very informative and gave an excellent presentation.

I enjoyed the training and hopefully soon will complete the advanced module. Thank you.

I was impressed with the content and delivery of the course.Every aspect was covered from theoretical, business and practical sessions.

Fantastic course! Highly recommended!

I’ve just completed the foundation and advanced days. I have found Dr Gurnam and the academy to be extremely professional and trustworthy. From the time I first made enquiries communication has been excellent. As a nurse it’s important to me to know that giving safe and effective treatments which are evidence based, and this is what I feel I have been taught. There was also lots of really useful information on the business side of things. I had the opportunity to carry out numerous treatments on live models which was great for building confidence. I’m very very pleased with the training I’ve received!

Attended the Jaw & Chin masterclass today. Super impressed by the whole organisation of the day. Liz was great in making sure the day ran smoothly and keeping everyone fed & up to speed and Gurnam I found to be the most knowledgeable trainer. Very down to earth, nothing was too much trouble, happy to share a vast amount of knowledge and answered all questions thoroughly. He was able to show us other techniques to address a range of models & made us all feel at ease…all with a great sense of humour! Will definitely be attending more of these courses and 100% recommend.

I attended the lip masterclass training with Dr Gurnam last Tuesday, it was a fab day and I would highly recommend attending one of his aesthetic courses. He was very knowledgeable and approachable, making me feel at ease throughout the day. His skills and eye for detail are amazing, the follow up support and care he provides to his trainees is exceptional. I can’t wait for more training dates to be released.

– Amy – Nurse, Sheffield

Met Gurnam today for the 1st time for a lip masterclass- one word amazing! I personally feel his approach to training and education is exactly right! He is informative, approachable and extremely supportive. Complications and safety were well covered to ensure our practice is safe. I would highly recommend him not only as trainer/educator but as an practioner- his experience showed throughout the day but without been intimidating. Will definitely be booking for another course!

– Claire – Nurse, Barnsley

Dr GV is an amazing teacher, he delivers in a way that makes things easy to understand and remember. His knowledge and aftercare is second to none, always on hand to offer advice in his own time. Will definitely be training with him again.

– Rebecca – Nurse, Norwich

Dr Gurnam has the perfect teaching technique. Throughly enjoyed training with him. He went above and beyond in answering ANY questions not just ones related to the training. Took away so much. Will certainly be doing further training with him.

– Cherelle – Nurse, Nottingham

Attended the lip masterclass today and am so pleased that I chose to do it with Dr. Virdi . Dr. Virdi was so natural with his teaching , clearly very knowledgable and very supportive throughout the training. He made something so challenging look and feel so simple . Brilliant safety points shared at all times , addressing all facts and clarifying myths all along . His techniques are simple yet effective and I felt more confident attempting a lip then I had previously. As an added bonus we also got invited to a closed group as part of ongoing support . All delegates were ever so impressed and I am sure the feeling was mutual for them too. Will definitely keep my eyes peeled for future training training dates . Highly recommend the training.

– Mehnaaz – Pharmacist, Nottingham

Gurnam is an excellent teacher and has in depth knowledge of craniofacial anatomy. He is an excellent trainer and helps inspire confidence through his vast knowledge.

– Marcus – Doctor, Nottingham

Had an exceptional training day yesterday, thanks to Dr. Gurnam Virdi. His knowledge and skills are second to none, and his teaching style makes it so easy to learn the procedures. For me, I focus on patient safety, and excellent results with my clients, Gurnam was a perfect teacher for this focus as it was mirrored with his practice. Thank you.

– Lyndsey – Nurse, Doncaster

I met Gurnam on a bespoke Teoxane training day and thought so highly of him i have asked him to be my DMP for the V300 course. He was so patient, knowledgable and laid back, one of the best teachers I’ve had in this industry (and I’ve been on multiple courses with multiple providers). I can not recommend him enough for the the techniques he taught on the day and the support he has since shown! He is a fantastic teacher and would thoroughly recommend him.

– Megan – Nurse, Lincolnshire

Gurnam is very passionate about his Aesthetics training and that comes across during the training he delivers. I liked his safe and practical approach towards the delivery of treatments. He is calm and approachable, which enables the delegates to relax and ask questions during the training sessions. Many thanks.

– Lisa – Nurse, Bristol

Fantastic training days learning skills for Temples, jawline and chin augmentation. Dr Virdi has so much knowledge and expertise. His relaxed manner and fabulous teaching method Is a joy, I’m ready to go out and practice now with confidence.

– Roslyn – Nurse, Nottingham

I had the privilege of being taught by Dr G recently at a Teoxane Masterclass. His style of teaching is simply perfect….chilled, laid back and relaxed but simultaneously hits all the important points of anatomy and relevance to the treatments being taught and performed. I learnt so many new things on a fantastic training day and would love to do more training with this very charismatic trainer. If you are looking for a trainer who will make you feel comfortable and relaxed but at the same time deliver excellent aesthetic training, then look no further than Dr G!

– Mai – Nurse, Nottingham
