I would like to kindly thank my teacher Eleonora for being such a helpful teacher !!! I was a student of RayCochrane School in August. I took a Level 4 VTCT Level for IPL and Laser. It is a complete course over a six weeks time. In that time you learn everything about Laser and IPL, the school uses updated technology which is very helpful if you want to get a better place in the clinic. All teachers are very helpful and knowledgeable.
After completing my course I was offered a job in a very good clinic where I am now currently working with an aesthetic doctor and performing laser hair removal treatments with various skin types. honestly, this is the best school if you are looking for a good knowledge of laser hair removal and IPL. 🙂 Highly recommend!

After contacting many training schools around London for laser hair removal training I came across Ray Cochrane Beauty School who seemed to be the only school offering diode laser training with the latest Soprano Ice machine, exactly what we were looking for so we decided to book a two-day training course.
First of all the location of the School is very well situated right in the heart of London. Less than 2 minutes walk away is Baker Streets underground tube station which connects you to all the zones for convenience. The school’s location is also perfect for lunch time and has all your favourite food stalls like Tescos, Sainsbury’s, Mcdonalds, KFC, Starbucks, lots more.
With regards to the facilities, they are located lower ground with a variety of different sized rooms that are modern, clean and include air conditioning for temperature control.
Our training practitioner was Eleonora she showed and proved extensive acknowledgment in this key area of laser hair removal and explained in very clear details everything you need to know on how to perform Laser Hair Removal heavily emphasizing on handling, client safety, and protocol.
The practical side of the training was very hands on and Eleonora is a perfectionist, she had arranged models to train on throughout the two days and demonstrated how to work with grids, system settings and operating the device on all the main body areas.
The whole experience has been exceptional and has given our therapist the confidence, understanding and basic skill set to implement this new service into the salon and offer this advanced treatment to our existing client base.
I would like to say huge thank you to especially Eleonora and the rest of the team at Ray Cochrane.
Best Regards
Scott McComiskie
