My experience at National Laser Institute was pretty amazing. Great hands-on training. The instructors were very attentive, great personalities, and worked very hard to make sure we all understood what we were doing. They made sure we left full of knowledge and ready to work on your own the day you graduate!


Lucina Cooper 232 of 1502

I think is one of the best training laser schools in the state of Texas! The instructors are very smart, and they know what they are doing. I’ve had the opportunity to go to NLI a couple of times, and I enjoyed it very much. I have learned so much here. Melissa is just so smart, and Kelly is so detail-oriented with instruction. Thank you, Louis, staff, and everyone else at National Laser Institute for this incredible opportunity!


Vanishiree Putala 233 of 1502

I can say 100% that this is the best school. The instructors are very experienced and I gathered so much information from them. Although some of the days are long I didn't feel tired because everyone is so full of energy!

Mary Ellen Genstler BBA, CLT, LMT, Esthetician 234 of 1502

I came to NLI directly out of esthetics school and with no job lined up after. I knew virtually nothing about lasers in the area of skin care but knew that it was what I wanted to do and that I wanted the best education available. After researching several different schools across the USA, I made my decision to go to NLI. All the staff, teachers, laser reps and guest speakers were professional, pleasant and very helpful. The teachers were all far beyond qualified to be teaching and had years of experience in the field of laser esthetics as well. I was very impressed with how available they made themselves for questions and even offered their help for after we left NLI and were out on our own.

There is no doubt that NLI is committed to the success of their students. They have forwarded me multiple emails with job opportunities in the laser industry that were available in my area and have done their best to help me find a job. Since graduating in December, I have been hired as a laser technician in a large medi spa in Anchorage Alaska doing laser hair removal and tattoo removal. Without the great education and support I received I know I would not have found such a great job! I highly recommend NLI to anyone interested in the field of lasers and feel strongly that my money was well spent! I hope to be able to take more classes from NLI in the future.

I can HONESTLY say that attending National Laser Institute was a life changing experience for me! All of the instructors are very professional, and what impressed me most was how knowledgeable they are!

I waited a long time before I decided what I wanted to do other than cosmetology, but I guess as the OLD saying goes, GOOD THINGS COME TO THOSE WHO WAIT!

Oh yeah, also I would like to thank Kelli for being such an inspiration and being TRUE and allowing me to realize that even though I AM NOT 20 ANYMORE I CAN STILL GO AFTER MY DREAMS!! Again, thank you everyone at NLI!


Erica Leopold 248 of 1502

On every level, this training has exceeded my expectations. The staffs' expertise and passion for these services and for teaching is above any other training I've received in the past. After this week, I feel prepared to go out and search for a job with confidence and excitement. I know am comfortable with these services and I have a clear idea of what jobs would best fit my personality and financial goals. I know what I need to do to get where I want to go. It has been personally uplifting to be in this community of women with many who have stories of overcoming personal adversity. I am walking away from this experience with a newfound passion for my work. I am sad to say goodbye to my beautiful soul sisters!

Lauren Low 249 of 1502

This course was extremely valuable to me. The chance to use real equipment on real patients was invaluable to applying what we learned in class to a clinical experience.


Lilia Sanque 250 of 1502

I learned a lot during this laser course. The lecture part on the first day provided us with all the necessary information we needed to know about laser treatments. The hands-on part gave me the techniques that will provide good care to my clients.
