The 40 Hour Online Basic Laser Operator Didactic Course with LSO
40 Hour Comprehensive Online Laser Course with LSO
The technological advances in today’s laser and IPL machines have made operating this sophisticated equipment quite challenging. The demand for laser services grows each year as consumers flock to medspas for treatment. Estheticians, cosmetologists, and even those entering this exciting career need comprehensive training to find employment, become successful and avoid liability.
Many states are beginning to require registered nurses and physician assistants to have documented laser training. For example, Arizona requires at least 24 hours of didactic training in laser biophysics, safety and other topics.
Unlike a voice behind a boring powerpoint presentation, all of our video courses are professionally recorded and provide engaging, educational, and often entertaining, training as if you were sitting in front of a live instructor. Taking all or most of the didactic portion of the course online cuts the student’s time away from home dramatically and fits into a busy work and life schedule, while providing the same quality instruction at the convenience of learning at home.
This 40 hour online didactic course was developed for s entry level career changers, estheticians, cosmetologists, nurses, and physician assistants. Additionally, doctors and nurse practitioners who do not wish to become Medical Directors may also find this course appropriate.
