My experience at National Laser Institute was amazing. Not only was the course amazing, but the entire staff was as well! Everyone was positive and really seemed to enjoy their job. The instructors were very knowledgeable in every aspect of the industry and very willing to share their experiences.

The teachers really care about helping with learning, being repetitive if needed, and making the course as simplified as can be with lots of great information. It was a very positive learning experience!

A year ago, I decided to pursue a new career in medical aesthetics. I researched many schools and absolutely felt that National Laser Institute was the right pick for me. The minute I enrolled, I was contacted and led through the process. It was important to me that I always had a voice on the other end that was able to answer any questions or concerns. The extensive training they offered gave me knowledge, understanding and hands on skills it would take to peruse my new career.

I can say with pride that I have now completed my training with NLI and have to say WOW!!!! What a ride. The moment I walked in on my first day until the day I left National Laser Intitute was top notch. The instructors are knowledgeable, helpful, and patient. I now have the tools I need to become successful in my new journey. Many thanks to NLI and everyone involved!

Attending National Laser Institute was one of the best decisions I could have made. The staff and hands-on experience exceeded all my expectations. Immediately after graduation, I felt prepared and confident as I began the interview process. Within one week, I was able to obtain a position as a medical laser technician at local med spa. I am extremely excited to start my career and I could not have done it without National Laser Institute!

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your fantastic level of quality education you have been providing for your laser and intense pulse light students at National Laser Institute. Over the course of the last year we have had the good fortune of hiring students from your training facility and their foundation of knowledge performing laser/IPL procedures and safety protocols was exceptional. Our experience with their skill sets and professionalism has been excellent! Your program seems outstanding and I look forward to talking to your future graduates as we grow our business and bring on more laser technicians.

I spent 10 years in the mortgage industry before I decided to pursue a new career in the aesthetics and laser industry. I decided to attend National Laser Institute because of their fantastic reputation and the fact that they offered 2 weeks of extensive training. The experience with NLI instructors helped with my confidence levels when I decided to open my own clinic in 2008. I’ve since evolved to owning my own medical spa that services 1,000 clients per month!

The staff was very knowledgeable, kind, and made the 2 weeks I spent there quite fun and memorable. I met some great people from all over the country as well, and had a wonderful experience. National Laser Institute has definitely played a role in my success today. Thanks NLI!

I attended National Laser Institute in February of 2006. Two months after attending, I landed a job in a prominent medical spa. I have been there for almost two years now, and I thank National Laser Institute for helping make that a reality! I don’t think it would have been possible to secure a job in a medical setting without the professional training of National Laser Institute on my resume. I am so grateful for the training and recommend National Laser Institute to anyone in the field! Thanks National Laser Institute and staff!

I really believe this experience has been life-altering for me. I was concerned about the cost, but it was worth EVERY penny. I got called for three different job interviews solely because National Laser Institute was on my resume, even before I graduated! The hands-on experience with such a wide variety of machines made me confident that I can excel anywhere I work. The combined experience of the instructors was invaluable to me. I am leaving this program inspired and ready to embark on my career!

I had the most amazing time at National Laser Institute. The instructors were amazing–nothing less than phenomenal. I never thought I could learn so much and be comfortable firing a laser in such a short amount of time. I cannot wait to return to Dallas just to visit all the girls. This was the greatest experience for myself and greatest choice for my career! Everyone was just so helpful and encouraging. It was a lot of great information, and I came home feeling extremely accomplished. If there are any more classes I can take from National Laser Institute, I definitely will be signing up!

The experience I had with my classmates, who were all around great nurses, was priceless. Your wonderful and professional instructors took my experience to another level! I did not just gain the knowledge of laser biophysics, but the friends and the team of support I feel I can count on moving forward. I feel ready to start my business in this field, and I look forward to going back to National Laser Institute for more training in the future!

I’m so excited about the amazing skills I’ve learned from National Laser Institute. I’m looking forward to opening a medical spa in my local, independent pharmacy! Offering Botox and fillers will give added value to our bioidentical hormone customers.

As a medical professional, I enjoyed every minute of this course. From the initial contact with my admission’s advisor, Julie, and her expertise sold me on coming to National Laser Institute. I drove from Houston to Dallas to attend school here—I was committed! Everyone here is professional and knowledgeable. The knowledge and ethics presented by the instructors was very refreshing. I plan on attending future classes with NLI. Thanks so much, it’s been a pleasure!

I absolutely loved my experience at National Laser Institute. I found that the combination of lecture and clinical made the experience most beneficial. The staff were all very welcoming, helpful, and most impressively, were very knowledgeable. As a hands-on learner, the clinical experience was an outstanding learning tool for me. It gave me the confidence that I needed for my everyday practice. Also, I thoroughly enjoyed the exciting and motivational lecture about marketing. It had me on the edge of my seat wanting to learn more! Two big thumbs up for the NLI Botox and dermal filler injectables program and to all of the incredible staff. I would love to come back for further training in the future. Thank you!

I am a nurse, I but was always depressed because I didn’t like my job. I took your 10-day course and afterward, I found a nice job in Chicago! I am running 3 locations, customers are very satisfied with me, and more importantly, I am enjoying what I do and am happy! Thank you, National Laser Institute!

I’m very excited and feel comfortable pursuing a career in medical aesthetics. I am working toward moving in that direction now.

Your staff was awesome—very friendly and knowledgeable. Your front desk was just as nice and helpful as the instructors. Every class was a great experience. On a scale of 1 to 5, I would give your school 5 stars! I felt it was worth every dollar I spent. Thank you so much!

I felt my time at National Laser Institute was well worth the price and the experience. I was surprised I was able to inject on so many patients! I chose your program because of the good reviews and everything that the price included. I injected my first patient with Botox a week later and I didn’t hesitate. I felt very confident! Thank you for following up. I’m looking forward to coming to an advanced course if you ever come to Los Angeles.
