My experience with the course has been pleasant and fun. I’ve enjoyed the set up. This has made my study process very easy and convenient. My expectations have definitely been met. I’ve enjoyed the addition of YouTube videos and links to visualize the theory work. The design of the course overview is very helpful. The layout of the module exams have been fun and easy to manage. It was great to have a challenge at the end of each module. The flexible hours has made this extremely convenient as I work a full time job. I decided to do this course because of the content that is covered and because of the reviews that I found and read up on. I wanted to be fully qualified before working with laser hair removal at the clinic I am employed at and found that this course has given me what I need to adapt my knowledge to the device I am working with. I think the price is fair.

Once you moved on from this page, it will become just another web page. Like thousands of others you have viewed lately. You will not benefit from it and you will not come back to it tomorrow, since tomorrow will be filled with a thousand other things.

What our students say!

Were your expectation met by the course?

I can say confidently yes! As I had no idea at all about the difference between most of the laser types and their uses. Now its very much improvement for me.

What made you decide to do the course?

I was searching for a laser course online as I have a baby and restricted in time to attend classes. I am planning to work with laser in the future after my daughter starts kindergarten.

Do you think the price is fair?

Yes, I think the price is fair for me.

Rania Noman from Sweden
Were you expectation met by the course?

Oh, what an experience! I will recommend others to enroll for your courses. Your courses are scientific, professional and of high quality, I therefore cannot add or subtract anything from the contents of the courses. For my career move, I found the contents of these courses to be critically essential.

Do you think the price is fair?

Relatively to the courses contents the pricing is fair.
Dr. Bikane from South Africa
Where your expectations met by the course?

As a whole the course was completely different to what I expected. I expected a more practical and hands on course however was met by a more business side to running a laser clinic. I was pleasantly surprised by this as it helped me, not only to learn about the different types of laser, skin types and treatments, but also how to market them, how to deal with clients and how to financially support it.

What made you decide to do the course?

I decided to start the course when I started a new job as a receptionist in cosmetic clinic. I became more and more interested in the treatments and wanted to further my knowledge.

Do you think the price is fair?

I think the course is fairly priced as I have seen others set at a much higher price.
