The laser and IPL hair removal therapist course is for the therapist that wants to specialise in laser and IPL hair removal. This course focuses on laser and IPL hair removal only.

What about hands-on training? It is always best to have hands-on experience.  However, with lasers you do not want to gain that experience with trial and error. It is a good idea to start your training with a solid theoretical base on which you then can build your practical training.

Apart from the theoretical online courses we do offer practical training. This can be in the group training format, where you enrol for the practical training week as it is scheduled from time to time.

Or, for clients whom have bought equipment and want training on that specific equipment we can provide custom onsite training. Keep in mind that practical training is machine specific and is best to do once you have decided on exactly what you would like to do; else you can spend a lot of money on non-related training.

The laser and IPL hair removal therapist course will give you a strong foundation to build your career and your business on. As you read though the course overview below you will find that the course consists of didactic as well as practical components and is structured in such a way that you expand your knowledge in a logical manner. With the power of the internet you are free to complete your training from anywhere.

On successful completion of the course you will receive a certificate stating that you have completed the training course for “LASER AND IPL HAIR REMOVAL THERAPIST”, a valuable asset that you can display with pride. Your certificate is not just an asset to display, but will open-up many doors in the future for you in your career.
