National Laser Institute’s curriculum is designed to give students in-depth knowledge of skin care mechanics in addition to the Comprehensive Laser Bootcamp training. This A-Z program not only leaves students laser ready, but it also offers the kind of education students need to be successful in any skin care working environment.

All students who attend will automatically be certified as a Laser Safety Officer in addition to their education in cosmetic laser procedures.

One of the keys reasons why National Laser Institute is a leader in laser and medical aesthetics education has to do with the variety of instructors and knowledge base we bring to you. In your class, your instructors will range from physicians, nurses, expert certified laser technicians, skin care specialists and nationally recognized laser trainers from publicly traded cosmetic equipment manufactures as well as the founder of National Laser Institute, Louis Silberman, a entrepreneur whom teaches a course on how to build your laser business, find a job, build a clientele or start your own business. Its one thing to have the skill sets to operate lasers, but its equally important to learn how to bring people in the door and keep them. This is invaluable information you will only find at National Laser Institute, relayed to you by an individual whom has been featured in Entrepreneur magazine and Fortune small business magazine for his marketing savvy in the health and beauty industry.
