Reshmi Takoorparsadh from Durban, South Africa said the following when she completed the Advanced Aesthetic Laser Therapist course:

“I opened a Laser Slimming Clinic and found myself bombarded with questions. Concerns the public rightfully had to have answers for. My half a day training that basically covered only the machine operation did not give me any working knowledge of using. I searched for more information to improve my skills and found very little available. The other training college also offered 1 day courses. This did not sit well with me at all; as I am a humanitarian at heart and need to be accountable to people around me; especially paying clients.

I discovered LaserCollege by chance and was taken with the professionalism and in-depth training programme. The modules were intensive and challenging; something I thoroughly enjoyed and would do it again in a heartbeat. The modules forced me to get out my ‘comfort zone’ and truly apply myself to gain useful information in the professional beauty industry.

Especially and equally important to the actual Laser training is the ‘Informed Consent’ section that the course covers in detail. This section is vital for anyone dealing with the public; to pre-empt complications.

Thank you for giving me all the necessary tools to now expand my business further and increase my Medi-Spa range. Your unbiased guidance is an invaluable tool to my business and me personally.

Going through this course has given me confidence, knowing I have educated answers for my clients.”

Jessica Keen from South Africa said the following on completion of the course:

“As someone who has little experience with these technologies I found that the course broke the subject matter down very well each time building on the information from the last topic – the structure and the flow of the course has been extremely helpful and I have learned a lot!

I also really liked that you included the YouTube videos. Because I’m very much a visual learner I find that I absorb information better when seeing it instead of just having reams and reams of printed notes. I think this also keeps the course interesting.

I have also learned a lot from the assignments in each module. I think it’s brilliant that along with learning the theory, you ask your students to think about their own businesses. The exercises have really made me think and researching them has opened up a lot of doors to further learning and investigation.”
