I enjoyed coming to this school. I loved every minute of it. I learned way more than I thought I would! I am so excited for my future because of everything I have been able to learn here. All the staff was amazing and made everyone feel welcome. They were all confident in what they were doing and teaching. Amazing experience!

I am 48 years old and set in my ways, but I needed a change and decided to try laser school. I came to National Laser Institute and fell in love with everything–teachers, staff, equipment, education, way of life! I’m SO excited to start my life over, and I can do that thanks to National Laser Institute.

Thank you for all your help and dedication! You all have an outstanding team at National Laser!! I had a great experience and realized that my esthetics career has more possibilities with my laser technician certification. I will continue to refer people over to you NLI!

I absolutely cannot say enough about my experience at National Laser Institute. The instructors were so knowledgable and very clear in their instruction. I am so happy to have attended! I will be a walking advertisement for NLI!

I want to let you know how much I LOVE National Laser Institute! I have attended MANY professional seminars and events and I have to say NLI is top-notch! The school is operated in such a professional and positive way. I am so impressed with the organization! I have to say Louis does such an excellent job in training as well as all the staff. All instructors are so dedicated and passionate with their teachings. I have learned so much from Shana, Samantha, and Hilary. Ms. Samantha P. is my favorite!!! I adore her!!! During one of the didactic/clinical days, she poured her heart out trying to help us understand the correlations of wavelengths to targets and the important of the laser speed to really tackle the targets of finer hair or darker skin hair. After 10 days of learning, I thought that I had understood and grasped the concepts until when she really grilled us. That was just awesome! Also, Jodi is super nice and helpful! I am so fascinated with the passion that came from each individual instructor, which always brought me back to the thoughts of “how does Louis do that?” He is a genius!

If I didn’t have difficulties leaving my kids at home, I would love to visit NLI as often as I can. I LOVE YOU ALL!!! Thank you again for the opportunities, may our paths cross again.

Awesome school! The instructors are very thorough on all the information. I can’t believe I learned all this in just 16 days. I’m definitely ready to go work!

I can’t believe I got a job so quickly after graduating from National Laser Institute! Especially since it was around the holidays. I would love for other people interested in this industry to know about my experience and all the endless possibilities out there. It really is such a fun job! I am looking forward to working for someone for a while to learn as much as possible and then open my own med spa one day!

This was one of the best teaching experiences I've ever had. Lecture, demo, and hands-on practice seems to be the magic key to learning. I took home a wealth of information and feel confident to perform these services to my clients.

This was a wonderful week of training. I felt very confident in the knowledge and experience with all my trainers and instructors!

As a RN for nearly 20 years, I highly recommend National Laser Institute for any medical professional who is considering adding laser services or injectables to their practice. The instructors were very professional, knowledgeable, and informative about equipment use, current trends, and readily shared their experience. It’s 100% worth the time and money to get the NLI experience!

Tondra Robinson, RN 167 of 666

I was so pleased with the education I received at this school. Every day was fun, exciting, and the instructors really want you to succeed. I would recommend this school to any nurse looking to make a career change.

I just wanted to take a second and say thank you for bringing such an amazing school to Dallas area! I enjoyed every moment I have spent at National Laser Institute! I did my laser class in June 2014, and my Botox/filler class in July 2014. I applied for a position that came to me from National Laser graduate services and got a call back that day! After a week of interviews, I am starting this week as a full time cosmetic nurse injector! I couldn’t feel more accomplished!! I been wanting to enter this career field and been going through rough times the last two years, so the school couldn’t have presented to me at a better time!!! Definitely is going to be a big life change for me and my 16 month old, and I couldn’t be any happier! The staff, and teachers are amazing! I even sneak back for treatments so I can see them! LOVE NATIONAL LASER INSTITUTE!!! Maybe one day, after I get my experience in the filed, I can lend my time to educate at the school. Thanks again for a wonderful program!!

I had a great experience in Chicago with my classes in laser and fillers. I really liked all of the instructors, especially Sandra from Dallas. She was a wonderful instructor in laser and I felt as though I had known her all my life! She was very patient and very knowledgeable and made me feel at ease.

Jan was great with teaching us in regards to Botox and fillers. She was very patient with all of us and she made her class come alive. She never made anyone feel as though they were below her—she made sure you were involved in the entire process!

I am a midnight nurse and I am usually going to bed at the time I was getting up for class, but the class was involved and kept me moving and I found myself completely engaged with the material being provided! Now I just have to put it all together as so I can get started with my career.

It is reassuring to know if you have any questions that you can call National Laser Institute and they will be there for you! Thank you so much again, NLI!

I have been home now for 10 days and my training seems so long ago, yet also like it was just yesterday. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed my 7 days at National Laser Institute. Your instructors are personable, knowledgeable, open to questions, and very entertaining. I felt my days at NLI were a great networking experience. My class was full of interesting students with extremely varied backgrounds and education levels. I have already contacted several since home to “pick” their brains about their particular expertise. I have also contacted instructors with a few questions and they have been great at responding with succinct pertinent answers. If I need any further training, I will definitely look to NLI for my education.

My name is Melanie and I am an RN from Michigan. I have been a nurse for approximately 20 years and have become rather disenchanted with the direction that health care has taken. I saw the ad for the National Laser Institute and thought I would explore further.

From the first telephone call that I made, the advisor was very professional and helpful right down to offering hotels in the area that would provide transportation during my experience. Once I arrived in Scottsdale, all went like clockwork from the moment I stepped off of the plane. The staff at National Laser are awesome, helpful, patient galore, while providing a conducive learning environment, even providing marketing strategies! Words cannot express my complete and total gratitude! I would encourage anyone considering this journey to take a leap of faith and give the National Laser Institute a whir!

Upon my return home I am currently in the process of opening a wellness center and Spa La La offering classes in wellness, reflexology sessions, aroma touch, massage, manicures, pedicures, photofacials, tattoo / hair removal and while you are relaxing at our location enjoy a green bubble tea!

Thank you Louis Silberman and the staff at National Laser Institute!

At National Laser institute I was happy to learn on my first day of injectables training that I would have an opportunity to complete hands-on skills immediately following the lecture curriculum. The sweet and friendly staff greeted me at the door to check me in, and the instructors wasted no time in getting started. The curriculum is to the point but thorough. After a few hours of lecture, we had a break and then broke up into smaller groups of 3-5. We had new patients waiting for us to practice our skills every 30 minutes. I was surprised to see how many new patients we would have an opportunity to practice our skills on. This hands-on learning is essential to learning your new skills fast! The program is designed to help you become an invaluable asset to your clients. The emphasis on safety and skill taught me techniques and procedures for injectables that have helped me in my business. I am now the proud owner of my own medical aesthetics office located in Scottsdale, Kumi Health. I’m obsessed with my career and I only wish everyone could have this much joy about their job every day. I would highly recommend anyone interested in learning more about medical aesthetics to attend National Laser Institute. Hands down, I wouldn’t send them anywhere else.

This was the best 10-day experience! I couldn’t have asked for more. I’m from North Carolina and was wanting to make a career change to a RN/esthetician. Clients were so happy when we were performing treatments on them. The staff made the experience—they’re all so happy to be at work!

Excellent instruction. I have done and completed often courses for physicians.  I found NLI by far the best.  Different instructors show different techniques.  The whole experience was much better.  Will definitely recommend to other colleagues who may be interested.
