The instructors and speakers are the best in the business and the material covered a huge range of subjects to help me start a new career. Thank you National Laser Institute!

Weekend courses for the medical providers and RN is a great idea! Instant hands-on training and fast didactics was just what I needed in terms of education in order to provide treatments for my future spa.

My experience at National Laser Institute was truly amazing. Every single person I met at this school was wonderful. The instructors are very knowledgeable and so friendly to everyone! At first, I wasn’t sure how I could possibly learn everything in two weeks, but I have learned so much and am so glad I chose to attend this school and take my courses here. There was a lot of hands on experience, which is very beneficial, and all of the instructors are so helpful. It is so great to be able to work with different people and learn everyone’s techniques. National Laser Institute also had a very welcoming atmosphere, and I am so happy I chose to stay for the fractional plus course because we had hands on all day with clients, and all my last minute questions were answered! I really hope that when I find work within this industry that I will be lucky enough to find a work place that is just as amazing as National Laser Institute, if that is even possible. Thanks everyone!

I knew laser training would cost a decent amount of money which I was hesitant to spend! Then, after researching schools, I discovered that they were the best school in the country for laser. Once in the school, I realized how to take my investment and turn it into ten times more. This was one of the best business decisions I have ever made.
