Our training courses are taught by our Master Practitioners, who are some of the highest skilled experts in the world. Iccon International are one of the longest serving SMP specialists, entering the industry long before many even knew it existed. We have had the pleasure to train over 200 people from all types of backgrounds.

We feel it’s important that to teach SMP, trainers must have extensive knowledge and experience behind them as this helps to raise the industry standard as a whole. With many SMP companies offering training after being in the industry for only a short period of time themselves, they simply haven’t gained the correct amount of experience to pass on to their trainees.

At Iccon International, we have years of experience in Scalp Micropigmentation on our side and have used our skills to treat clients with all types of hair loss issues, including male pattern baldness, severe alopecia, female hair loss, head scarring and post hair transplant clients offering them world class results each and every time.

We are proud to boast a 100% feedback rating and are confident to state that negative reviews about us will not be found anywhere on the internet as our standards are those of the highest possible.


Our SMP training course is tailored to any previous experience you may or may not have. Our trainers have absolute patience in teaching trainees from complete beginners with no previous experience whatsoever to aesthetic practitioners and tattoo artists giving them the full set of skills required to produce exceptional results. We teach Scalp Micropigmentation the correct way with a hands on approach ensuring that all of our trainees complete the course with full confidence to enter the industry. What’s more, all Iccon International students receive ongoing support for life in our online training group once qualified to ensure their success in the industry.

Iccon International also provides training to SMP practitioners which may not have received the correct training elsewhere. We are seen as the go to SMP experts for key advice. Many would agree that anything we don’t know about SMP, simply isn’t worth knowing.


Iccon International take a completely different approach to Scalp Micropigmentation training and have a truly unique offer which no other UK SMP training provider offers. We call it Forever Training. When training with us, you receive 3 to 4 days hands on training in class depending on the training option you require, then upon completion of your training with us you are awarded your certificate which allows you to perform SMP legally. But where we differ is that once you have completed your training course, you are then invited to join our online training group where we continue to train, assist and support you. Whether it be a question on how to treat a particular client, or where to locate supplies, we are here to advise you. Access to our online training group is strictly for Iccon International students and provides ongoing support for life. In our online Training group, you become part of the team and get to connect with our trainers and students from all over the world. We always say that training is so much more than your days in class. With our continued support and ongoing training, we ensure that our trainees succeed.


The importance of receiving correct Scalp Micropigmentation training from a certified SMP expert is paramount to your success in this industry. With some learners opting to train with poor and low cost training providers who don’t have the necessary experience and skills themselves to train in SMP, students are quick to realise that they were set up to fail. This in turn means that the students find themselves having to retrain with a reputable training provider such as Iccon International. Correct SMP training is the only way to ensure that you can offer your clients world class results and when dealing with a sensitive issue such as hair loss, your clients deserve the very best. Investing in the correct SMP training is a worthwhile investment.

We are extremely passionate about SMP training and ensure that upon completion of your training course with us, you have the full knowledge, skill set and confidence to work in this exciting and rewarding industry. During our intense, hands-on training course you will learn the art of Scalp Micropigmentation enabling you to provide flawless results to your clients.

There is much more to SMP than first meets the eyes such as perfecting the correct technique, creating natural hairlines and building density in the correct manner to create natural, undetectable end results.

Anyone can put dots on a head, but only those that have received the correct training can truly perform Scalp Micropigmentation to its highest form.

Training days are sectioned into clearly defined modules and your progress is assessed throughout each day.

As well as working on live models, you will be required to complete written sections of the training course along with Q&A sessions to determine your understanding of the SMP process. Upon completion of your training course you will be eligible to obtain insurance with either our approved insurance provider or your own. You will also be eligible for Government licensing which allows you to perform SMP legally.

All of our trainees are required to work on live models which are supplied by ourselves.


Iccon International are one of the only, if not the only SMP training provider to offer a true level 4 accreditation in SMP. We are officially recognised by Government licensing bodies and insurance companies around the world. Level 4 SMP accreditation can become quite confusing for trainees as some training providers state that they offer a Level 4 accreditation, but upon checking with the accrediting bodies themselves, it quickly transpires that the training course is not level 4 accredited in SMP, but in fact it’s a level 4 accreditation in permanent make up. Scalp Micropigmentation is different to permanent make up and a level 4 accreditation in SMP itself should be obtained.

At Iccon International, we are a transparent company and we are happy to advise our trainees on our level 4 accreditation which can then be verified by local councils and Government licensing bodies.

On completion of our training course you will received your certificate and be eligible to apply for insurance and local authority registration.
