I loved learning from the top laser instructors. Everyone was so friendly and knowledgeable. I feel so confident with everything we learned. I had such a great time—I don’t want to leave!!

The instructors are so friendly and knowledgeable. When you’re here, it seems like everyone is a friend and not just a teacher. The classroom environment is friendly and welcoming. I’m happy I attended class here and I plan on coming back for the peel and injectables courses.

I recently registered at National Laser Institute to become a Certified Laser Technician. I am an esthetician and was ready to continue my education and learn more skills and tools to add to my area of expertise. It was very scary for me to go through with this career change after being in restaurant management for 20+ years. That being said, this was a dream of mine and I was determined to make it a reality! Attending NLI was a phenomenal experience. The entire staff there was amazing!! I learned so much from each and every single instructor. I was so sad when we graduated and my time was complete. I also love the library they have for graduates with tons of information and videos for reference if we need help once we get hired in the industry. To sum it up, NLI was the best career move I could’ve ever made. I am so happy I chose them for continuing my education

I cannot thank the staff of National Laser Institute enough. They strive to infuse every student with the skills needed to be successful in life as well with our careers. This is the best experience I could have ever asked for.

This program is truly the best! I can honestly say that I now know why National Laser Institute is the #1 laser school in the nation. It’s hard work but if you have the passion for it then it’s a breeze! All the instructors are extremely knowledgeable and thorough. They give you all the tools you need to be successful. The best part—all the hands-on training!

I just wanted to let you know how very much I enjoyed my recent laser training in Chicago, IL.
After completing my recent training in Chicago, IL, I now understand why National Laser Institute is considered to be the best laser training facility in the nation. The wealth of information and quality of instruction provided was incredible. I was given the tools and knowledge to feel 100% confident pursing my career in laser esthetics.
I was impressed not only with the solid curriculum, but with the warm and friendly staff and instructors who gave each student individualized care and attention. I loved my time with National Laser Institute and can’t thank you enough!
Thank you so very much, National Laser Institute!

So let me start by saying I had the most enriching and memorable time during my stay at National Laser Institute. I was incredibly nervous about jumping into a field that I knew nothing about, but the staff of instructors there made it so easy to follow and retain the vast amounts of information being thrown your way. This was 100% a life changing experience!!! I’ve already recommended National Laser Institute to some of my close friends and will continue to speak highly of NLI for many years to come! Thank you again!

I attended the Chicago Core class September 30 through October 6th, 2013 and I loved it! I had very high expectations and they were met! The program was very concise and straight to the point. The information shared was relevant to starting as a CLT in either a spa or medical office. I feel prepared to work in either!

The educators were exceptional! Shana, Sandra, Dani (local to the Chicago area), Jenny and Shelley gave foundational information and “real life” situational applications for that foundation. They were all engaging, encouraging and entertaining. I want to work with all of them on a daily basis!

Tracey and Eileen put together a flawless event! I can’t express how wonderful it was to start each day with their joyful “good mornings” and bright smiles! Plus it was really impressive to have Louis stop in and give a presentation on how to market ourselves to the industry. It shows his dedication to the growth of the med spa industry. Very inspiring! It was also nice to have representatives from Syneron Candela there for a presentation.

Thank you for providing a great program. Your team changes lives with every class!

I had an amazing time at National Laser Institute! I only wish I had done it sooner! I made a lifetime of memories and friends. I enjoyed every aspect of the learning from the classroom to the hands on training. What a ride—thank you!!! Next step, a career I can be proud of!

I am writing to recommend National Laser Institute’s laser training program to become a laser technician. The school exceeded all of my expectations and standards. The instructors were all very knowledgeable and had excellent hands on skills. I would highly recommend National Laser Institute. Since my training, I have opened my own laser aesthetics business where I continue to expand my laser services. When necessary I have also gone back to National Laser Institute for refresher courses and I would not think of attending any other school. I love my new career now and am so happy that I attended National Laser Institute. Thanks again to all the instructors!

My husband and I moved to Arizona in September of 2004 and after a few months of job hunting with disappointing prospects, I decided I needed more education to find a job I would be happy with. After some Internet hunting and comparison-shopping, I decided on the National Laser Institute. This laser school appealed to me in several ways. I was pleased to find that the it offered more hours than what was required by the state of Arizona and the curriculum was very in-depth, with lots of hands on training and observation hours. And because financing was available, I was able to attend right away.

Training was wonderful and the instructor was unbelievably knowledgeable and confident. Classes progressed at a pace that was stimulating but not overwhelming and the support of the instructor and the entire staff at National Laser Institute was top of the line. When it came time to do treatments, the instructor led us through and enabled us to grow with each while gaining confidence so that we felt able to go out into the working world and be successful. I gained employment with Advanced Laser Clinics in Scottsdale before I even graduated from the Institute. The clinic approached the Institute and was referred to me for an interview. I was told upon being offered the position of laser technician that I was the prime candidate of all interviewees because I was attending the National Laser Institute.

I enjoyed this program and feel that it will assist me with my job search. I’ve already recommended your school to fellow NAIS students and will continue to recommend your program to others. I had a great instructor and made the class fun.

I had a wonderful time and learned a lot, mainly during the clinical setting. All of the instructors were very good and extremely professional. The way they teach makes you feel confident and comfortable. The time for lunch is short because you have to go out since they only provide lunch for the first day. (Lunch should be provided all days).

I loved this course. Having come in with little to no injection experience, I now find myself ready to go out and practice. From the instructors to the clinical experience, I highly recommend.

Just wanted to thank you for an awesome experience at NLI...we loved, loved, loved the experience and felt like your classes and instructors really made us comfortable enough to go out and start administering Botox and fillers safely. We are proud to say that we have taken steps to start up our own Medspa business and take control of our lives by becoming independent business owners. We want to thank NLI for providing us with the tools and confidence to make this dream a reality!! We will definitely be back to complete additional courses that we will use to integrate into our practice!
