Aesthetician & Career Changers

The instructors were great for preparing us for a career in the cosmetic laser industry. They went above and beyond to educate us in the techniques and practices of skin care. I made so many great friends and look forward to a rewarding career in the field of laser hair reduction!

We were shown every modality and were able to get lots of hands-on practice. I learned how to prescreen and post care laser instructions from the instructors. The instructors are from the HIGHEST quality! Each and every one of them are truly outstanding. I loved that all the information was presented in an interesting manner. This experience has been life changing, and no matter where I end up working I feel that I have been prepared very well and will have a successful career in the laser industry.

Thank you for the amazing experience I gained at National Laser Institute! It has been a YEAR since completing my studies and while at National Laser Institute, I not only gained a wealth of knowledge in my chosen laser career but also gained lifelong friends! With the knowledge gained at National Laser Institute I was able to secure a laser specialist position at a top notch upscale med spa. There I excelled and went on to now manage an upcoming med spa and from all of the knowledge in lasers, marketing and more I am proud to say we are surpassing our greatest expectations! National Laser Institute gave me the opportunities to be able to do what I love every day! Thank you so much!

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!

Attending National Laser Institute for the CME laser and injectable course for healthcare professionals was the best career decision I've ever made! The program is expertly organized to provide the education and hands on experience necessary to excel in this field. The educators are outstanding and some of the best in the business!  After my training at NLI I feel prepared and confident I am ready to provide my clients with the highest quality of services. I can't recommend National Laser Institute enough!

National Laser Institute completely EXCEEDED my expectations! I first spoke with Ann Burke, an advisor about the courses and what I was interested in. She went above and beyond to give me the information I needed to help me make the best choice for my situation. I never once felt pressured or sold. In fact, she gave me a ton of different options and said the best route for me (since I was on a budget) would be to start with the botox, fillers, and advanced botox/fillers (explaining this is where the money is in this business) and come back for the other classes in the future. FYI, this was cheaper alone than the other classes we had discussed so, obviously she was listening to me and not just trying to make me fork over a bunch of money. I asked a TON of questions and kept in contact with her for over a month on a consistent basis. I literally felt like I was talking to my best friend, as she never once made me feel like a burden or annoying. I ended up taking the medical director course (required in AZ for laser training), laser course, botox/fillers course, and advanced botox/fillers course and was BLOWN away with the knowledge, training, support, and friendliness that was provided by every single person I came in contact with. I thought Ann was just a super sweet, genuine, rare individual (which she is of course), but EVERY single staff member at NLI is the same way (including Louis the owner/founder). The knowledge and training I received was again beyond my expectations. NLI has the latest and greatest up to date machines and technology. Each instructor has a ton of experience, knowledge, and technique, so you are able to learn from all aspects to find what works best for you. They share stories and mistakes they’ve made to help build your confidence and support you every step of the way. The information and knowledge I’ve received has opened my eyes to more possibilities than I ever thought possible. I have almost filled an entire 1 subject notebook (20 pages worth on the first day alone) with extra notes I took, on top of the manuals they already provide you with for each course. Even Louis came in and spoke about his experiences in business and the mistakes he’s made! The courses give you tools and tips on how to market yourself and be successful. I could literally go on forever about my experience at NLI! I definitely plan on coming back to take the rest of the courses offered when I have the money. If you are unsure whether or not NLI is right for you, I highly recommend taking the plunge and making it work (Just DO IT). Ask to speak with Ann Burke or anyone of the advisors (I have a feeling Louis makes sure he only hires the best) to find out which route is best for you. You wont be disappointed.

Motivating, Inspiring, Challenging, Confidence Building: NLI lit me up to the dynamic world of LASER technology and medical aesthetics. Confidence in myself grew as the instructors guided us through each class with professionalism, imparting their knowledge and experience in an engaging and safety conscientious manner. Friendly, dedicated office staff organized our schedules and welcomed us each day as if they were welcoming guests into their home. And motivating us throughout was Louis Silberman (head honcho), whose daily presence and genuine enthusiasm for our success was palpable. What I found most helpful and challenging was the practical, hands on experience we received by applying this vast technology to clients and to each other (students). I was also impressed and inspired by the other students NLI attracted. The NLI model fostered an atmosphere of comradery and provided for us a network of affiliates for the future. I plan to return to NLI for further education as new technologies become available for practice.

I have been blown away by the friendliness of staff and instructors. All instruction and clinical time with the instructors have been phenomenal. The more exposure I have, the more confident I feel and I truly believe that NLI is the only place that offers this type of curriculum for their students.

I did not think I was going to feel confident with injections after only 2 days, but the content and instructors were amazing.

I am so glad to have had this valuable teaching. The instructors are top notch and the equipment is high end. Having the didactic, video's explanation, and hands-on, with fellow students, was priceless. Also being able to apply it further with consults, teaching, and practicing on their clients was great. Good program for sure. Kelly is exceptional.
