This specialised Level 3 qualification is written by CIBTAC and provides the underpinning knowledge and skills to allow you to enter aesthetic practice for the safe and effective use of laser and intense light systems. Not only will you learn the fundamentals of laser and light therapies, you will also develop skills in skin analysis and assessment, anatomy and physiology, patient consultation, and health and safety in the clinical environment.

Throughout this online course you will learn:

  • skin analysis assessment and classification
  • taking a medical history and record-keeping
  • indications and contraindications to skin analysis treatments
  • pre and post-treatment care

If you are new to laser and light therapies, you will need to sit a separate, one-day ‘Core of Knowledge’ course which is a requirement for all laser and light therapists working under Local Authority licensing and is also one of the pre-requisites for the Level 4 and Level 5 qualifications.

Following on from completing your online assignments you will then be required to attend two skin analysis assessment days, which will be held in London or Cheshire.

After successful completion of the entry Level 3 qualification, you will be well prepared to study specific laser and light qualifications and will have a great foundation in the key skills of patient assessment and their suitability for a range of aesthetic treatments.

If you would like to apply for this exciting new Level 3 certificate, please contact on 01477 536977 or who will be able to take payment.
