Our academy offers a short course in Laser Safety Training on the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Logan, Sunshine Coast, and Sydney.
This laser safety course teaches a therapist to perform laser treatments confidently and safely in accordance to health and safety regulations.
Technologies such as laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) will always carry inherent risks such as eye injury or skin burns. As a result it is important that operators, owners, and associated staff and personal have a minimum level of expertise and education in regards to the hazards and safeguards associated with their use in order to protect themselves against exposure and possible injury as well as minimising risk of litigation.
This course is recommended to be studied together with HLTIN402C – Maintain Infection Control Standards in Office Practice Settings (both certificates are prerequisites required by QLD Radiation Health for ‘User Licence’).
