Merilee Cook 207 of 1502

As a former student of the National Laser Institute, I highly recommend this school for anyone interested in laser technology. I am new to the field of esthetics and recently relocated to the Phoenix area. I attempted to find employment as an esthetician but was continuously told I lacked experience. I decided to further my education by becoming laser certified. Within two weeks of completing the courses at the National Laser Institute I found employment as a laser technician and aesthetician. While attending classes at National Laser Institute, I was awed with the organization, knowledge and professionalism of the staff. They go above and beyond in regards to hands-on training, clarifying questions and always ensuring that students are comfortable. The curriculum at National Laser Institute is phenomenal with a huge emphasis on laser safety. Learning the proper laser skill set is one thing, but it’s equally important to learn how to grow our own business and not depend upon others. The instructor was a marketing guru who had been wildly successful marketing beauty over the years and owned a medical spa. I also liked the variety of instructors at National Laser Institute. Students can expect to hear from dermatologists, nurses, laser representatives, entrepreneurs, and a laser safety officer. I feel I owe my career to National Laser Institute and I will be forever grateful!

Michelle Shults, Dallas TX 214 of 1502

I attended National Laser Institute in April of 2008 and enrolled in the full program. After only three months, I landed a job as a medical esthetician at a prominent doctor’s office. Without the training I received at National Laser Institute, I never would have had the confidence or the skills to apply for such a position. During my job search, I had the support and encouragement of the National Laser Institute staff. They gave me advice on interviewing and stayed in contact throughout the process. To anyone I come across who is looking for advice on entering the skincare field I highly recommend National Laser Institute to them. It is definitely worth every penny and it will always be one of my most memorable experiences! Thanks National Laser Institute!
