There are two very standard courses to take in order to become a certified Laser Hair Removal Technician. The course overviews are stated below.



Laser Hair Removal Apprentice: Must complete 40 classroom hours that are needed to complete certification.


Apprentice in Training program provides the student the opportunity to acquire the education and technical skills that will allow them to attain fulfilling and productive careers in the medical spa and cosmetic laser industry. They will be trained to work at physicians’ offices and medical spas as a laser hair removal apprentice in training and laser safety officer. They will be prepared to begin their 100 supervised laser hair removal treatments that will make them eligible for more advanced positions such as Laser Program Description. This program delivers high-quality education within a highly convenient time frame for everyone.


Now that you have completed the Apprenticeship in our Training course, what's next? You will have to wait about 2 to 3 weeks to acquire the appropriate licensing to continue on to the next course. Don't worry, as soon as you receive this, you will be able to start the Laser Hair Removal Technician right away. The Laser Hair Removal Technician course information is stated below.


Laser Hair Removal Technician: Must complete 100 body sites (can be completed in 3-4 days)

Once you have finished your classroom-based education, you will learn the hands-on approach for a certified Laser Technician. You will be placed in various spa-like scenarios so you are prepared for what the future has in store for you as a licensed Laser Technician.

Once you have completed the Apprentice in Training and Laser Hair Removal Technician course and have received all appropriate licensing requirements, you are officially a Certified Laser Hair Removal Technician. That wasn't so complicated! In the state of Texas, these courses typically run about two weeks long. When I said this course is quick, I meant it. This course is perfect for those who want to facilitate their career or adopt an entirely new and rewarding one without breaking the bank. To further your knowledge and passion even further, you are eligible to complete the Senior Laser Hair Removal Technician. The difference between a Laser Hair Removal technician and a Senior Laser Hair Removal Technician is the focus and additional training. Becoming an exceptional instructor of your recently acquired skill is the focus of a Senior Laser Hair Removal Technician.

This program resembles a Laser Technician, yet, as a Senior Laser Hair Removal Technician, you are no longer performing treatments, you are learning to become the actual instructor. Our highly experienced and esteemed instructors will let you take over, but do not let this worry you; they will be there for you if you need assistance. They will teach you the tools necessary to instruct with confidence.
