The ‘Core of Knowledge’ Laser User course is a Level 4 ‘foundation’ course that is the vital first step to complete before attempting to work with laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) radiation.
It will describe the key features of laser IPL radiation, the electromagnetic spectrum, key technical terms, major tissue chromophores, tissue interaction with light, the suitability of different wavelengths for skin treatments and will also cover hazards and risks and safety policies and procedures. Note: This course has been re-designated from level 3.

The ‘Core of Knowledge’ Laser Safety Officer course is for an advanced learner seeking Level 5 certification in radiation safety and will be typically the Laser Safety Supervisor / Laser Safety Officer (LSO).
This person is appointed to manage overall safety of equipment, users and other persons present in the Laser Controlled Area where lasers and intense light IPL devices are installed to provide professional treatments to clients or patients. Note: This course has been re-designated from level 4.
Course fee: £295
This advanced course comprises four bitesize modules, each competitively priced, allowing you to progress steadily through Level 3 and Level 4 knowledge content at your own pace without a burdensome up-front cost. It provides you with a fundamental understanding of Skin & Hair Anatomy and Physiology, Reactions to Laser and IPL Therapy and Application Theory before progressing on to complete case studies and practical assessment. All learners successfully completing all three theory modules will receive Level 3 certification from OCN Credit4Learning. Level 4 certification is only achieved upon completion of all four modules.
Course fee: starting from £99
The full Level 4 course is not yet available for people who do not have access to a laser or IPL to complete the practical work.
I found the course very straight forward and easy to navigate. The information is well laid out and interesting. Every module creates an inner confidence and I was so pleased to have achieved my certificate. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to gain this qualification. I have also put 2 members of staff on the course.
It was the very first time that I did a course online and was rather daunted by the process. I did not need to worry... the whole process was explained very clearly and was easy to follow from beginning to end. I would not hesitate to recommend Online Training Ltd...
An initiative course which is one of the best courses I have come across in years and makes me confident that my clients have the necessary background when providing laser treatments. After passing the course, clients have come back and told me how much they enjoyed it and to quote one gentleman “I found the course very interesting, I have already surprised / bored, people with my new found technical knowledge”. It’s also brilliant that the course is online as it makes it accessible to all, delegates can fit learning around their busy lives.
I am pleased to confirm that Holistic Insurance Services accepts the online Core of Knowledge training that you provide. We will not hesitate to point those seeking insurance cover for laser treatments to you when they do not already have this valuable training.
We are pleased to recommend this course to our UK laser customers.

The technology you use and advice provided was incredibly beneficial. I was able to do a lot more learning in less time using the downloaded course notes and viewing the video sessions. It allows you to be more efficient and effective in learning and study.
I found the course simple and easy to use. It had very thorough and detailed information to help with the examination at the end.
