Step 1) Become Board Certified in Aesthetics Through the American Academy of Procedural Medicine

To qualify for the CFI Program, medical professionals must be members of the American Academy of Procedural Medicine, and must have successfully passed the Aesthetics Board Certification Pathway ($998 Aesthetic Pathway Certification Process Fee) through the AAOPM Testing Center. For board certification, physicians must complete a 3-part exam which includes practical exams, case study submissions, and a comprehensive final.

Part 2) Case Studies

Two patient case studies are required for board certification after completion of the practical exams. Please follow the required outline for submission. Please click on the button below for sample case studies and submission requirements.

Part 3) Final Exam

Upon successful completion of the practical exam and submission of the case studies, candidates for board certification qualify to complete the final exam. The exam concentrates on standard of care concerns, regulatory issues, and the safe administration of the procedures including managing complications and adverse events.
*Must meet minimum requirements for testing. Visit AAOPM to learn more about prerequisites for testing.

Step 2) Complete Certified Faculty Instructor Training and Testing (12-hour Live/Virtual Training) $998 Fee

Upon passing the AAOPM Board Certification Pathway for Aesthetics, physicians and nurses will undergo extensive training by our board-certified faculty. Training will include both live and virtual components and additional testing through the Empire Virtual Training Hub. Our instructors at Empire must be completely competent and passionate about teaching in the medical industry. They should also have the drive to improve and succeed, as well as shape the next generation of industry professionals.


Step 3) Become a Proctor. Complete 6 months on-the-job performing aesthetic procedures—Certified Faculty Instructor (Proctor)

The on-the-job training period for medical professionals is an integral part of obtaining a certification in aesthetic medical procedures. During this period, the physician or nurse must demonstrate both their technical and theoretical knowledge of aesthetic medicine by performing treatments under the guidance and supervision of an experienced and board-certified medical professional.

This allows the supervising physician to ensure that they possess proficiency in all injection techniques, RF technology applications, laser treatments, skin care regimens, as well as other pertinent procedures used in aesthetic medicine.
