    Professional Medical Education Assn & The Laser Training Institute™, and
    National Council on Laser Certification (NCLC)

MEETING LOCATION: The course itself will be held in the classrooms of the Laser Training Institute & The Marathon Sail and Power
Squadron building (Brady Building). Located at 5211 Loggerhead Lane, it's just behind the Panda House restaurant on US1, which
itself is across the street from the Publix Grocery. Turn onto 52nd street Gulfside, then right onto Loggerhead Ln and the building is
there on your right (a white building on stilts). This is a one hour drive to Key West if you care to go during your off times.

Course Description:

ANNUAL UPDATE: Once a year we offer an "Update" course on Laser Safety and offer any of the NCLC Laser Certifications. This is
primarily directed toward Alumni of any of our Laser or Medical training courses or online programs, but anyone is welcome to register
and attend. Special pricing applies to our own Alumni. Medical Laser Safety Officers should stay current on issues with
Medical/Aesthetic Laser Safety and Use, anyone who operates or repairs lasers, or supervises those who do, should stay current in
the medical/aesthetic laser field. For those that first need accredited training hours in order to qualify to take one of the exams, we'll
provide an online course it at NO ADDITIONAL COST! You can't beat that. (See info and limitations listed below on this page)
These Online courses include the Safety Officer Course, Aesthetic Laser Procedures (including hair removal), Laser Techs - Safety &
Operation, Airway Laser Safety, and Basic Laser Safety for Staff. CLICK HERE for the catalogue.

LASER SAFETY CURRENCY: The 2011 ANSI Laser Safety Standards requires recurrent safety training for key staff at least once
every five years. Attending this Safety Update will meet this requirement for any staff and LSO's. (Section 5.2.2 on page 31 of the 2011
Standards). If you don't have a copy of these latest standards and you're the LSO, then you need a copy.

LASER SAFETY OFFICERS & RE-CERTIFICATION: Every 3 Years. All of the Certified Medical Laser Safety Officers are required to
re-certify once every three years.  They sometimes find it easier just to retake the exam every three years. We can do this for you at
the annual review at no additional cost. Even if you don't need to re-certify yet, it's still very helpful to go through the review just as a
refresher. For those Safety Officers who hold a BLS Laser Safety Officer Certification you may upgrade to the original NCLC Medical
Laser Safety Officer Certification at no charge, and if you sit for the exam it will be good for another 3 years.

LASER SAFETY OFFICERS & INITIAL CERTIFICATION: If you're not already Certified as a MLSO, then here's your chance. You'll first
need accredited training at a Laser Safety Officer course to qualify. You can achieve this by completing our online MLSO course prior
to attending this 3 day update course. It's included FOR FREE!. The exams are administered at no additional charge.

OTHER LASER CERTIFICATION EXAMS: AESTHETIC OPERATOR, LASER HAIR REMOVAL, LASER REPAIR TECHNICIAN
If you wish to pursue Certification as either a Laser Hair Removal Specialist, or the more encompassing Aesthetic Laser Specialist,
you may attend the Review and take the Exam at the course.
If you already meet the qualifications to take these exams then no further training is required. If you still need to meet the formal
training requirement for eligibility, you can achieve this by completing either our online Laser Hair Removal or the Aesthetic Laser
Procedures course prior to attending this 3 day update course. These are available to you at no additional charge for this Keys
seminar, with the limitations as expressed in a paragraph above.To ensure that it's used for the purpose of this annual update though,
you must complete the online course by the last day of the Keys seminar when access to the online portion will be terminated.
Certificates of Training from the online course will be provided only at the Keys course - so you must attend in order to get your
certificate at this price. If you choose not to attend and still want your Certificate we'll be glad to provide it for the remainder of the
regular fee for that online course.The exams are administered at no additional charge during this course.

Conch Realty and tell them that Greg Absten sent you. Tel 305.743.8877. Go to www.KeyRentals.com to look at some of the
properties available for vacation rentals. This is where we put our family and friends when they come down. Some even come with a
boat rental - ask Adam.

Travel: - Marathon (MTH) is a small town only 5 miles in length in the middle of the Florida Keys at Mile Marker 50. You can fly into
one of several airports, get a rental car and then drive to Marathon. Key West (EYW) is the closest - about an hour from Marathon
straight up US 1. Airfares may be slightly higher fees than Miami. Miami (MIA) is 2 hrs 30 mins away and you just get on the Florida
turnpike south, which turns into US 1 - the only road through the Keys. Fort Lauderdale (FLL) is another affordable option for flights
and its about 2 hrs 45 minutes from Marathon. The drive through the Keys in the daytime is GREAT - scenic on the Overseas Highway
(US 1). You can check on ORBITZ and other sites for flights.
