Aesthetician & Career Changers

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.

Just wanted to give you an update and let you know that I was hired by BioDerm Skin Care & Laser Center here in Dallas, Texas at the end of September, 2007. At the moment they have two locations, one in Garland, TX, and the other in Arlington, TX. I have been with them for a mere two weeks, in training, and they told me that I will be the first person that they have ever hired that will have completed their training in record time. Training at BioDerm usually takes one month, as they are very cautious and thorough when training a new employee. My training will be completed in two weeks! They cannot believe that I have never worked in another med spa before, and have gone so far as to tell me that they thought that I was a spy from another med spa because I was so knowledgeable with the lasers and had such a good technique. They are actually wanting to groom me to run the next location that they are planning on opening in Highland Village, about 5 minutes from my house, which is perfect for me! I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all that the National Laser Institute taught me. The school is exemplary, and I have recommended it to several of my friends and co-workers even to a couple of patients interested in getting into the field. Please keep me updated as to when Louis will be opening up the next National Laser Institute here in Dallas so that I can direct people to it. Again, my deepest gratitude for giving me a head start at a new and exciting life!

I attended National Laser Institute for the comprehensive course and the extra day of chemical peels. The staff and educators are extremely intelligent and know what they’re talking about. I am very satisfied and definitely feel that I have learned everything I need to know to perform a safe and effective laser treatment and chemical peel. I am glad that I decided to take both courses because I had a phenomenal experience!

National Laser Institute has been the most amazing learning experience I have ever had. I feel I am prepared on so many levels to enter this exciting world of lasers.

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).

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!
