This course is suitable for delegates from different backgrounds, whether they be looking at Laser and IPL as a possible new direction for their business, or are experienced practitioners looking to sharpen their skills and knowledge.
This training course is also highly recommended for all those interested in the science of Lasers & IPLs and it is guaranteed to improve your understanding and confidence in attaining effective treatment results.
The Core Of Knowledge is a 1-day theory course providing the certification required to obtain insurance for laser & IPL systems by virtue of the fact that it covers the fundamentals of laser safety, regulations and light-tissue interactions.
We run regular Core of Knowledge (Laser Safety) courses in conjunction with The University of Manchester. These courses follow the syllabus as outlined by the MHRA. The BMLA recommends that all laser users attend a Core of Knowledge every 5 years.
Why Train with Lynton
Lynton originates from The University of Manchester, so it is natural that very close links remain between the University and Lynton’s manufacturing, research and training programmes. As a result, we are proud to run a range of laser training courses developed in collaboration with the University’s School of Physics, providing a fantastic opportunity for delegates to receive world-leading educational content from an Institute of Higher Education.
Held at our own Centre of Excellence training facilities, our courses cover all aspects of laser & light-based technologies, with all content written and developed in conjunction with The University of Manchester.
