Aesthetician & Career Changers

Victoriana Martel 326 of 1370

This is an awesome experience! I learned how to treat different skin types using different laser systems. We had the chance to get hands-on training with all the lasers. It’s actually pretty fun removing tattoos. I enjoyed treating clients for wrinkles and fine lines and laser hair removal. I believe this school truly helped further my career as a laser technician. THIS is my future!

National Laser Institute is an exceptional school. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

Sinvalda Oliveira 330 of 1370

This class has been so helpful even though I have prior experience in this field. I gained lots of improvements on my clinical techniques and skills. National Laser Institute is a high standards school. They focus on the technologies of the lasers and how each unique one works and not solely on the brand of the machine. Thanks so much, NLI!


Jeanette Padilla 331 of 1370

From day one, the staff seemed to answer questions even before I asked them! The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and they know everything pertaining to laser like the back of their hand. As the classes tend to go long, the instructors had a way of bringing your attention back to where it needed to be. Hands-on training was an incredible experience. Thank you, National Laser Institute!

Imra Samia 334 of 1370

National Laser Institute is awesome, especially since all the speakers and instructors are helpful and make sure we understand the concepts of laser hair removal, skin tightening, etc. All I want to stay is thank you, NLI, and keep it up!

Sherry Marrelic 338 of 1370

The instructors were amazing and knowledgeable in their specialty. They were able to break things down to simplify it for the students in order for us to better understand the information. They really made it clear and enforced Fitz 4-5-6. All the instructors were energetic, kind, caring and took the time for all of us, even if we were having a hard time grasping a concept.


Corrie Towry 339 of 1370

I loved learning different lasers and treatments. The instructors were well informed!

Diane Lovejoy 340 of 1370

This was the most intense course I have ever taken—in a good way. It’s very unusual to have all teachers so experienced and knowledgeable in many different areas of skin care. The equipment was top notch, and the hands-on experience was great!


Kevin Fantasia 341 of 1370

National Laser Institute is a fast-paced, fun, and exciting laser school with amazingly friendly and qualified staff. The experience was immensely satisfying.


Kim Kuchinski 342 of 1370

I don’t come from a medical or beauty industry background, so this is a BIG career change—especially at my age. However, I would recommend this school to anyone interested in this field! You come here and learn all you need to know to be successful. This school is full of great people, from Louis to the instructors to the front desk staff, to Dr. Mike and my advisor, Jane. Loved it!


Hiyam Abdelfatah 343 of 1370

I always wanted to go to laser school, but I never did because I wasn’t able to find one that covered everything in a short amount of time. National Laser Institute covered everything I needed to know in a short time! Highly recommend.

Fun and educational. Kind and professional instructors!

Heather Ledet 347 of 1370

I recently registered at National Laser Institute to become a Certified Laser Technician. I am an esthetician and was ready to continue my education and learn more skills and tools to add to my area of expertise. It was very scary for me to go through with this career change after being in restaurant management for 20+ years. That being said, this was a dream of mine and I was determined to make it a reality! Attending NLI was a phenomenal experience. The entire staff there was amazing!! I learned so much from each and every single instructor. I was so sad when we graduated and my time was complete. I also love the library they have for graduates with tons of information and videos for reference if we need help once we get hired in the industry. To sum it up, NLI was the best career move I could’ve ever made. I am so happy I chose them for continuing my education


Kathleen Hunnewell 348 of 1370

I cannot thank the staff of National Laser Institute enough. They strive to infuse every student with the skills needed to be successful in life as well with our careers. This is the best experience I could have ever asked for.

Ebony Jackson 349 of 1370

This program is truly the best! I can honestly say that I now know why National Laser Institute is the #1 laser school in the nation. It’s hard work but if you have the passion for it then it’s a breeze! All the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and thorough. They give you all the tools you need to be successful. The best part—all the hands-on training!


Lisa Fredrickson 350 of 1370

Thank you so very much, National Laser Institute!

I had a wonderful time and learned a lot, mainly during the clinical setting. All of the instructors were very good and extremely professional. The way they teach makes you feel confident and comfortable. The time for lunch is short because you have to go out since they only provide lunch for the first day. (Lunch should be provided all days).
