Aesthetician & Career Changers

76 of 1631

I came from Dubai to Arizona Just to go to National Laser Institute, and although I was hesitant about the price of the school, it was the best decision I have ever made! I got a job offer two days after I left the school without an esthetician background in America. I thought I would get some experience here in America before I went back to Dubai, but I already have a job offer waiting in Dubai! It was worth every cent!! This school was so much fun. I met so many friends and ALL the teachers are amazing. The only thing I was upset about is that I had to LEAVE! I miss this school so much!! Louis knows what he is doing, and he made a great school with a fun atmosphere and hires only the best!!

The National Laser Institute has provided me with the proper education, knowledge, and hands-on training that I feel is essential in today’s market in aesthetics. The hands-on training and the theory have given me the confidence that will help in the job search. My teacher was an extraordinary person whom I have a lot of respect for–she is extremely intelligent, well experienced, very informative and congenial. She makes sure everybody understands the theory of the laser hair removal and treated all students equal and fair, she is absolutely congenial. I definitely recommend her as a teacher. She’s the best, which made the class all the fun especially during the hands on training when we were all so busy. I definitely would recommend this school for I feel it was well worth the price. The curriculum I feel was intense but gave me the proper knowledge and information, which I feel anybody should know who wants to do laser hair removal. Beats a five-hour seminar any day. The staff was all very pleasant and courteous which truly impressed me, whereas normally it is so uncommon in this day and age. So it was like family, a comfortable feeling.

I was at a med spa as they were discussing hiring a certified laser technician, and the school that they mentioned who trained the best laser techs was National Laser Institute. So I looked it up. I have been interested in lasers for years and this school had programs that finally made it possible for me. Although thankful to have taken time off to raise my kids, I was ready to get back to work. I love helping others and I'm big on self improvement!  National Laser Institute was an experience I will never forget. I loved the entire staff and instructors. Everyone was super helpful. I met students from all over the world. I actually got a job two days after graduation by just putting myself out there and marketing myself. I contacted my own doctors and dentist. One didn't have room but told another doctor in the building about it, which led to me gaining a job in 2 days!

I graduated from National Laser Institute in January of 2010. I have been working as a laser technican since March of 2010 out in Reno, Nevada. I do everything from tattoo removal to laser hair removal. I have been very successful and love working with lasers. I learned so much by coming to your school. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I had the best experience and I tell everyone that wants to get in this field to go to National Laser Institute. All of your staff were so great and so smart. They really do an amazing job. You really do have a wonderful program and it is a dream of mine to teach some day. Thank you so much!
