Aesthetician & Career Changers

E. Sullivan 351 of 1296

The instructors are so friendly and knowledgeable. When you’re here, it seems like everyone is a friend and not just a teacher. The classroom environment is friendly and welcoming. I’m happy I attended class here and I plan on coming back for the peel and injectables courses.

Fun and educational. Kind and professional instructors!

Heather Ledet 353 of 1296

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

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 355 of 1296

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!

I just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed my recent laser training in Chicago, IL.
After completing my recent training in Chicago, IL, I now understand why National Laser Institute is considered to be the best laser training facility in the nation. The wealth of information and quality of instruction provided was incredible. I was given the tools and knowledge to feel 100% confident pursing my career in laser esthetics.
I was impressed not only with the solid curriculum, but with the warm and friendly staff and instructors who gave each student individualized care and attention. I loved my time with National Laser Institute and can’t thank you enough!
Thank you so very much, National Laser Institute!

So let me start by saying I had the most enriching and memorable time during my stay at National Laser Institute. I was incredibly nervous about jumping into a field that I knew nothing about, but the staff of instructors there made it so easy to follow and retain the vast amounts of information being thrown your way. This was 100% a life changing experience!!! I’ve already recommended National Laser Institute to some of my close friends and will continue to speak highly of NLI for many years to come! Thank you again!

 

Ethan Reynolds 358 of 1296

I attended the Chicago Core class September 30 through October 6th, 2013 and I loved it! I had very high expectations and they were met! The program was very concise and straight to the point. The information shared was relevant to starting as a CLT in either a spa or medical office. I feel prepared to work in either!

The educators were exceptional! Shana, Sandra, Dani (local to the Chicago area), Jenny and Shelley gave foundational information and “real life” situational applications for that foundation. They were all engaging, encouraging and entertaining. I want to work with all of them on a daily basis!

Tracey and Eileen put together a flawless event! I can’t express how wonderful it was to start each day with their joyful “good mornings” and bright smiles! Plus it was really impressive to have Louis stop in and give a presentation on how to market ourselves to the industry. It shows his dedication to the growth of the med spa industry. Very inspiring! It was also nice to have representatives from Syneron Candela there for a presentation.

Thank you for providing a great program. Your team changes lives with every class!

Crystal Stamper 360 of 1296

I had an amazing time at National Laser Institute! I only wish I had done it sooner! I made a lifetime of memories and friends. I enjoyed every aspect of the learning from the classroom to the hands on training. What a ride—thank you!!! Next step, a career I can be proud of!

 

Leah B. 361 of 1296

I am writing to recommend National Laser Institute’s laser training program to become a laser technician. The school exceeded all of my expectations and standards. The instructors were all very knowledgeable and had excellent hands on skills. I would highly recommend National Laser Institute. Since my training, I have opened my own laser aesthetics business where I continue to expand my laser services. When necessary I have also gone back to National Laser Institute for refresher courses and I would not think of attending any other school. I love my new career now and am so happy that I attended National Laser Institute. Thanks again to all the instructors!

 

Trisha Gilbert 362 of 1296

I feel 100% confident going out into this field now. National Laser Institute has been the best experience. I feel like a professional now!

Allison Madigan 363 of 1296

My husband and I moved to Arizona in September of 2004 and after a few months of job hunting with disappointing prospects, I decided I needed more education to find a job I would be happy with. After some Internet hunting and comparison-shopping, I decided on the National Laser Institute. This laser school appealed to me in several ways. I was pleased to find that the it offered more hours than what was required by the state of Arizona and the curriculum was very in-depth, with lots of hands on training and observation hours. And because financing was available, I was able to attend right away.

Training was wonderful and the instructor was unbelievably knowledgeable and confident. Classes progressed at a pace that was stimulating but not overwhelming and the support of the instructor and the entire staff at National Laser Institute was top of the line. When it came time to do treatments, the instructor led us through and enabled us to grow with each while gaining confidence so that we felt able to go out into the working world and be successful. I gained employment with Advanced Laser Clinics in Scottsdale before I even graduated from the Institute. The clinic approached the Institute and was referred to me for an interview. I was told upon being offered the position of laser technician that I was the prime candidate of all interviewees because I was attending the National Laser Institute.

 

Terri Erd 364 of 1296

The National Laser Institute has provided me with the proper education, knowledge, and hands on training that I feel is essential in today’s market in aesthetics. The hands-on training and the theory have given me the confidence that will help in the job search. My teacher was an extraordinary person whom I have a lot of respect for- she is extremely intelligent, well experienced, very informative and congenial. She makes sure everybody understands the theory of the Laser Hair Removal and treated all students equal and fair, she is absolutely congenial. I definitely recommend her as a teacher. She’s the best, which made the class all the fun especially during the hands on training when we were all so busy. I definitely would recommend this school for I feel it was well worth the price. The curriculum I feel was intense but gave me the proper knowledge and information, which I feel anybody should know who wants to do Laser Hair Removal. Beats a five-hour seminar any day. The staff was all very pleasant and courteous which truly impressed me, whereas normally it is so uncommon in this day and age. So it was like family, a comfortable feeling.

 

Lucy Rovetto 365 of 1296

I enjoyed this program and feel that it will assist me with my job search. I’ve already recommended your school to fellow NAIS students and will continue to recommend your program to others. I had a great instructor and made the class fun.

Mary Matera 368 of 1296

Just wanted to give you an update and let you know that I was hired by BioDerm Skin Care & Laser Center here in Dallas, Texas at the end of September, 2007. At the moment they have two locations, one in Garland, TX, and the other in Arlington, TX. I have been with them for a mere two weeks, in training, and they told me that I will be the first person that they have ever hired that will have completed their training in record time. Training at BioDerm usually takes one month, as they are very cautious and thorough when training a new employee. My training will be completed in two weeks! They cannot believe that I have never worked in another med spa before, and have gone so far as to tell me that they thought that I was a spy from another med spa because I was so knowledgeable with the lasers and had such a good technique. They are actually wanting to groom me to run the next location that they are planning on opening in Highland Village, about 5 minutes from my house, which is perfect for me! I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all that the National Laser Institute taught me. The school is exemplary, and I have recommended it to several of my friends and co-workers even to a couple of patients interested in getting into the field. Please keep me updated as to when Louis will be opening up the next National Laser Institute here in Dallas so that I can direct people to it. Again, my deepest gratitude for giving me a head start at a new and exciting life!

Kristy Smith 371 of 1296

I attended National Laser Institute for the comprehensive course and the extra day of chemical peels. The staff and educators are extremely intelligent and know what they’re talking about. I am very satisfied and definitely feel that I have learned everything I need to know to perform a safe and effective laser treatment and chemical peel. I am glad that I decided to take both courses because I had a phenomenal experience!

I loved my experience at National Laser Institute. The teachers are so experienced and knowledgeable about the industry.

Plus it's just a fun school to go to!

Dakota Cauthen 374 of 1296

Loved my experience at National Laser Institute—so fun! I learned so much in just two weeks. I didn’t think I would be that good at it, but now I have confidence and I am positive I can do this because I was properly trained.
