Principles and Practice of Laser Tattoo & Benign Pigmented Blemish Removal—Levels 4 & 5

This BMLA-approved course is for the advanced learner seeking certification in Laser Tattoo and Benign Pigmented Blemish Removal with additional material covering new and advanced techniques and the option to progress to Level 5 (practical). Successful completion of the first three theory course modules is equivalent to a notional 30 hours of learning providing 30 CPD learning credits.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

  • Level 3 or 4 Laser Physics & Safety Laser User ‘Core of Knowledge’ or equivalent recognised certification course, and
  • NVQ Level 2/3 Beauty Therapy Certificate or equivalent recognised certification course

Description

£120 incl. VAT

As this is primarily a Level 4 course, a thorough understanding of the training video and workbooks is required to answer the series of challenging multiple-choice assessments.

The learner will be typically a practitioner already using laser or intense pulsed light equipment wishing to achieve the minimum recommended educational conditions published by professional educational bodies or required by professional indemnity insurance providers. 

The Level 4/5 candidate in Principles and Practice of Laser Tattoo & Benign Pigmented Blemish Removal will therefore have completed a Laser Physics & Safety ‘Core of Knowledge’ Laser User Level 4 training or have attended a recognised laser safety certificated course as a pre-requisite before taking this advanced course.

Several written tasks and documented case studies must be completed and submitted as evidence of practical skills. Online Laser Training provides additional study resources to assist the completion of all these portfolio tasks.

Our laser theory and practical application courses are quality assured customised programmes of study that are bespoke to Online Laser Training and not available on the UK regulated framework. However, our programmes have been mapped to the relevant National Occupational Standards (NOS) and aligned to the regulated framework meaning they are equivalent in academic terms to Level 4 and Level 5 qualifications.

The learner must progress through the following sequence of modules and you can only purchase the next module after successfully completing the multiple choice assessment.

YOU CAN COMPLETE LEVEL 4 CERTIFICATION WITHOUT A LASER. HOWEVER, TO ACHIEVE LEVEL 5 CERTIFICATION YOU WILL NEED ACCESS TO A SUITABLE LASER WITH PRIOR TRAINING FROM THE LASER SUPPLIER. IF YOU REQUIRE FURTHER ADVICE ON TAKING THIS COURSE PLEASE EMAIL US ON INFO@ONLINELASERTRAINING.CO.UK
