This one day course is designed for those nurses/technicians/engineers/staff setting up and running the control panels of lasers for physicians in medical/surgical settings. It consists of the first day of our two day Laser Safety Officer Course. It will cover all the Laser & Energy Concepts, Tissue Effects and Safety considerations as outlined in the ANSI 136.3 requirements for Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care Facilities, but not the second day administrative matters, and LSO Certification exam, for the LSO's. Accredited Certificates of Laser Training are provided. ANSI Standards also have a requirement that ALL staff working around Lasers have recurrent safety training at a minimum of once every 5 years, and this class will meet that requirement. This course is all lecture. For hands-on training see our inhouse courses.
If you are actually going to be the Laser Safety Officer for the facility, then please view the two day course for Laser Safety Officers.
