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!

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!

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!

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 356 of 1511

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.

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!

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!
