Aesthetician & Career Changers

Randi Baca 301 of 1296

National Laser Institute changed my life for the better. I couldn't ask for a more positive, informational, energized experience. It was beyond my expectations and I cannot wait to boast to all my family and friends about this amazing school!

Janae Welch 302 of 1296

Going to NLI is the best thing I could have ever done, and for the first time in my life I felt like I was exactly where I was supposed to be. I can't thank you all enough for everything you all do, each and every one of you are amazing and you guys have an incredible program. For the first time I felt like I was around people that actually believed in me and didn't just shut me down like I'm used to. Everybody there only made me feel like there is no limit to what I can do and where I can go, and I'm so thankful for that. I'm so sad to be done, I wish it never ended! Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Hope to see you all again xoxo

Taja C. 321 of 1296

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!


Holly Casarro 322 of 1296

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.

NLI was a class act from the admissions rep Jen, to front desk staff, to the AMAZINGLY kind, knowledgeable instructors. I feel confident heading into interviews and due to my new knowledgeable base, I will now be interviewing potential employers! The marketing advice I've gotten seems worth the price on the entire program. It was fun seeing Louis the CEO engaging with students and spewing marketing tips. NLI is a real family and they made me feel as if I was part of it!

I have had a positive experience with the whole process from Jen the admissions advisor, didactics and to the clinicals. Everyone was so helpful.
