Before I attended the program I was extremely skeptical on how it is all condensed into 2 weeks and was thinking would all of the things I gained actually be valuable knowledge? Turns out it was and so much more. The instructors and material was amazing for a learning experience. I am overly thrilled about the new career path laid in front of me. Everything was so over the top. It is perfect for what is needed to really have success in this world.

Louis, thank you for putting together this amazing learning environment and giving me a new found drive to succeed in this new world I have stumbled into.

Great time! Learned heaps and feeling more confident with lasers, lights and other machines. The staff are all great. Very helpful and nice. Some are extraordinary, some full of fun and they destress you. In two words: Loved It!

Morgan VanAcker 1438 of 1511

I liked the knowledge I got but did not like doing it 15 days straight. I wish we could have had the holiday weekend off. Overall great experience and I would definitely do it again. Very good education and very thorough.

Crystal Baldazo 1440 of 1511

I enjoyed my experience at National Laser Institute. I feel very comfortable with all of the modalities I learned during my time here.

Thea Van Der Westhuizen 1441 of 1511

Coming from South Africa it was a major adjustment, concerning students, instructors and front desk people, even clients all were so different. It took me two days to settle in with the American culture and I could start relaxing.

The information and educational training were absolutely outstanding. The environment is very professional within the training set up, I loved it! From the front desk, to the classrooms, restrooms and kitchen.

I have learned so much about lasers, different hand pieces, energy, wavelengths and depths. I realize this industry is for people that are very educated in this field, especially knowing skin types. Although there is so much more to learn and to practice with lasers, I really feel confident in what I have learned to take the next step. Being a responsible person will be a key in this industry for me.

It was worth my trip, If I had to do it again, I would!

Angela Dick 1442 of 1511

Overall, my experience has been wonderful! The instructors are invested and compassionate. It has been obvious that they really want us to succeed. I feel very prepared to begin this journey as a laser technician. Soon I begin aesthetic school. My career as a medical aesthetician is underway because I have such a good foundation.

Monica Corey 1443 of 1511

Everyone was wonderful and kind. Class started on time. Every instructor was awesome. I couldn’t ask for anything more!

Rhonda Johnson 1444 of 1511

I’ve been doing lasers for almost a year. It was nice to learn the science behind it and to get many of the why questions answered.

Jamie Brian 1445 of 1511

I knew absolutely nothing about laser on my first day. From didactic, to clinicals everyone instructing was fantastic, caring and enjoyable. All instructors that I worked with left a lasting impression and I hope I cross paths with all of them again.

Roxanne Cosme 1446 of 1511

When I first came I was a little scared and intimidated. Once the instructors started to teach and break things down for us it became a lot easier and clear. I really enjoyed all of the instructors, they were all very helpful and answered all my questions. They made it very clear so I could understand what I was asking. They made me feel very confident in going out into this field and know that I will be okay with what I am doing. I can say I had so much fun here. I learned so much from all of these ladies. I would definitely tell anyone who is looking to join this field to come here.

Kristen Clarke 1447 of 1511

Throughout the entire program I have had a wonderful experience. The skin scene party held high expectations for the school and they were all met. The admissions process, class settings and staff were all amazing. The only thing that frustrated me during the school was one of the guest speakers of one of the lasers was constantly flirting with a student and it was just not professional and it took away from my information that I was wanting to receive from the company. This isn’t something that made me think it was the schools fault but it is something that should be prevented. Other than that I will 100% recommend this school to anyone and everyone!

Tori Amason 1448 of 1511

My experience has been amazing. I love the hands-on we were able to get, and the number of machines we were able to use. The teachers were very knowledgeable, I just tried to soak up all of the information I could from them. I feel like I am going to be able to walk away from this with confidence that I got everything I could out of my time here.

Tiffany Fowler 1449 of 1511

Overall, I enjoyed my time at NLI. I felt that the teachers were very educated on the subjects they were teaching. The mix of different personalities and teaching styles were extremely refreshing every day.   *Good choice on coffee machine! *I would replace the stools in the classrooms, everyone complained about them the entire time.

Martha Makar 1450 of 1511

Enjoyed the experience overall. Great information and knowledgeable instructors. Great that we have the opportunity for experiencing and training on so many lasers and their uses. Grateful!
