Laser Therapist Boot Camp.

Executive training that develops leaders for the aesthetic laser industry.

The Laser Therapist Boot Camp allows for you to enjoy all the benefits of the scientifically based in-depth Advanced Aesthetic Laser Therapist online course plus the mind-growing experience of spending a week with other professionals from the industry

What do you get when you put a group of people who have a vivid interest in the same subject plus experience and creative ideas together for a week to actively learn about the subject and exchange their experiences and ideas? Pure magic.

During the day you grow your knowledge and practice new skills. In the afternoon and evening you get to share experiences with people who work towards similar goals as you and around the dinner table we have structured discussions on topics like marketing and sales as a service delivery person and not as a salesman, personal development, the influence of culture and cultural change on the industry, how to expand a business and what to look at when buying new equipment.

This does not even begin to describe the after-effect. When you get to return to your everyday life with this experience and get to apply the knowledge to your career and business.
