In order to learn how to perform treatments with laser and intense pulsed light technology, practitioners need to have Level 4 Qualification Core Of Knowledge. This is the foundation course that provides a fundamental understanding of light and laser technologies.
Within Core of Knowledge, delegates learn how light interacts with skin to produce specific outcomes, as well as how to use treatments safely and effectively to achieve these in a clinical setting.
The course also covers standards and regulations that are relevant to the use of laser treatments in specific jurisdictions. This is an assessed course, and a certificate is issued upon successful completion.
Models will always be provided for Level 4 qualification core of knowledge training at PHI College.
However, if you would like to bring your own models we ask that you arrange an alternative with your trainer prior to your training date.Get In Touch
