On-site Laser Certification Testing

For the more experienced Practioners and Staff who have been performing procedures
and have had the requisite training, a One Day program in your own facility to provide a Certification Review and administration of the applicable NCLC Laser Certification exams is available. These are provided by our nonprofit Professional Medical Education Association (PME).

The one day program is offered at your own facility for $1500 plus reasonable travel expenses for the proctor. The price includes the fees for any of the NCLC Aesthetic Laser Operator or Laser Hair Removal Certification exams.

For those that don't meet the requisite training requirements, this on-site training may be expanded to two to three day Inhouse training to meet these NCLC testing requirements, and the exams administered at the end of the program.

The program may also be offered to hospitals and medical facilities for their Medical Laser Safety Officers (MLSO), but this usually requires the inhouse training program to be conducted first in order to qualify for the exam.

Eligibility: Applicants must meet eligibility requirements prior to taking the review and exam. Download the Certification Handbook from the NCLC website to read the requirements. These requirements generally include experience in the field or minimum number of case submissions, and a Certificate of Training from any accredited provider documenting 16-24 hrs of formal laser training (depending on which certification).

Online Pre-Course Training: In many instances experienced laser operators have had good training in the past, but they have no formal documentation of such training or it was not from an accredited provider listing the hours of training on their certificates. In such circumstances Professional Medical Education (PME) will provide access to its Online Computer Based training at a 50% discount to your staff, so that they may complete it prior to the one day review and testing session. This will meet the training prerequisite. Any such staff will be required to complete those programs online prior to the testing, or they will not be allowed to take the exam. CLICK HERE for a catalog of online courses offered by PME. You'll be able to take 50% off either the individual or package prices, depending on which you want.

Onsite Complete Training: Another option to meet this formal documentation of training requirement is to have PME conduct the training course at your facility, and then immediately follow with the review and exam. These can be accomplished in 2-3 days depending on how the program is structured. The price of the inhouse training would include the Certification exams. PME can compress a 3 day course into just two days if students complete some of the lectures online prior to the course (included in the course fee at no additional charge). Even for experienced operators, this is probably the best way to ensure success on the exams, but it does take more time. Information and pricing on PME's inhouse training programs may be reviewed by CLICKING HERE.

If your staff otherwise meets the documented training requirements then you're already eligible for the exam without any PME training. Free EXAM REVIEWS for the Certification Exams are available on the NCLC website. You may also make application to the NCLC to take the exam directly, and schedule it near you at any of more than 755 proctors located worldwide.

Once you've contacted PME and an acceptable date has been determined for the review and testing, PME will require completion of an educational services agreement to lock in the date and provide the discount on any online courses that you might require (if any).

Training and Licensing is not  "Certification"

Many people get confused about what a "Laser Certification" actually is. Training and associated accredited Certificates that you get from that is NOT a Certification, although some groups use that term loosely. Neither is State licensing for the few states that require that - even though they sometimes use that term.

Read this FAQ article on the differences between Certifications, Training and Licensing. You DON"T NEED to attend our training programs if you otherwise qualify to take a Certification Exam. You can obtain training from ANY educational provider, including our own on-line programs. You can attend an in-person training program from one of our affiliates and take an exam at the conclusion of the training. OR IF YOU ALREADY QUALIFY, once approved by the NCLC, you can schedule testing with our Testing Agency, ETA Intl through either in-person proctors around the world, OR secure, online testing from anywhere in the world that is scheduled through ETA Itl.
