ARAP

(APAN Registered Aesthetics Practitioner)

APAN has a special Trademark – ARAP™ (APAN Registered Aesthetics Practitioner). Industry professionals are invited to submit their qualifications for evaluation by an industry assessor, who will review their documentation and determine their appropriate level of registration.  There are several categories within the ARAP registration to help identify the appropriate skills needed in accrediting a practitioner.  This process is separate to membership.

Professionals who meet the ARAP registration requirements are included on the APAN Website and promoted to consumers as Approved Registered Practitioners.

ARAP Practitioners also receive a Code of Practice, a decal to display in their business and are required to comply with on-going professional development as evidence of their currency.
