Objective of the Course

The on-line Advanced Training Course in Trichology is a basic course in Trichology comprised of close to 50 audio/video lessons divided into different themes. This course is not sponsored by any company working in the sector.  The course’s objective is simply to teach students the basics of Trichology through the analysis of the main pathologies of the scalp.

The topics covered are:

  • The history of Trichology, Psychology, Anthropology and Psychopathology
  • Anatomy, Embryology
  • Physiology
  • Principle pathologies of the scalp
  • Microscopy in Polarized Light
  • Hair Restoration Surgery
  • Therapy (only for physicians)

The course is continually accepting students and sign-ups can be done at any time of the year. At the end of the course there will be an on-line exam of 30 multiple choice questions.  Once the exam has been successfully passed the Italian Society for Hair Science will issue a Certificate of Course Participation which will be mailed to the student.

The course is open to all those interested in Trichology in general, including those without a degree in Higher Education:

  • Doctors
  • Estheticians
  • Hair Stylists
  • Trichology Assistants
  • Anyone passionately interested in the subject matter

The content of the course will be aimed at shaping the cultural outline and the correct technical support to be able to carry out the activities relating to the well-being of hair and scalp. A professional will therefore be able to acquire the knowledge and skills which will distinguish him from the competition.  He will become aware of the pathologies of the scalp and of hair as well as become capable of giving not only correct aesthetic consultations but also advice based on science.
