This course accommodates delegates from different backgrounds, whether that be someone looking at Laser and IPL as a possible direction for their business, or an experienced practitioner looking to sharpen their skills and knowledge. This training course is highly recommended for all those interested in the science of Laser & IPL and 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 naturally, very close links remain between our 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 very 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. 

After completing this course, you will receive a Certificate in Conjunction with The University of Manchester


Case Study

She is the author and main lecturer of the industry-leading Lynton / University of Manchester Skin Laser courses that are available to anyone in the industry with an interest in laser applications. She has been asked to contribute to a number of books on laser and light treatments and has published over 30 papers in a variety of medical and scientific journals.

Excellent course with great attention to details

"Attended Core of Knowledge here last month to learn about lasers and intense light sources. Excellent course with great attention to details and safety. The physics theory was very interesting and the rationale for choosing specific wavelengths and energies for various treatments in different skin types was well explained. I contacted Lynton Lasers again today for advice on hair removal treatment in dark skins ( FP V and VI), latest “ pain -free “ systems and the physics of it all! The physicist who came to my rescue was Jon Exley who answered my questions and really improved my understanding. I find Lynton Lasers to be very helpful and thorough in their approach and extremely supportive. Thank you!"
