See this FAQ for ways to get clinical training after our seminars or online courses.
After you've taken ANY of our seminars OR online courses in aesthetic laser procedures, we'll be happy to refer you to a clinic that we work with that offer additional hands-on supervised clinical experience with various laser/ipl modalities on patients. They offer such preceptorships ONLY to those who have first successfully completed a training seminar or online course. We make the referral and you make your own financial arrangements with that office for the amount of time you wish to have additional patient treatment experience. We refer ONLY our alumni. The U.S. clinic is located in Indianapolis Indiana, and the European clinic is located in Dublin Ireland. We also work with a clinic in Dubai, U.A.E. who provides our online courses and then completes the hands-on work there.
DISCLAIMER: Different States have varying requirements for licensing of non-physicians to perform these cosmetic laser procedures, but most States have no regulations at all. It is up to the individual to determine their own requirements prior to purchasing aesthetic laser training programs. Look under the FAQ's about licensing and certification options, and options for additional Hands-On training if you take our Online courses.
You have two options of obtainining this training with us - either our ONLINE courses, or our IN-HOUSE training at your facility utilizing your own equipment. We also have OPEN ENROLLMENT SEMINARS in INDIANAPOLIS, and DUBLIN IRELAND. We also do PRIVATE courses in our Ohio office for 1-3 people for just a $2500 flat fee for 3 days, since we don't have to travel and if you schedule during our off times. Most of our students come from established Medical or Aesthetic practices where they already have someone to help them with the hands-on training with their own lasers & IPL's. Online training is perfect for them and they receive an accredited Certificate of Laser Training from the Online course.
If you have multiple people to train, it makes sense to have an In-House course where our faculty comes to you and teaches both the academic lectures, and introductory hands-on training on your own equipment. These In-House programs range from 1-3 days depending on the background of your people and whether you want to include Laser Certification exams as part of the program.
