Why take Laser Tattoo Removal Course – VTCT (ITEC) Level 5

The VTCT (ITEC) Level 5 Certificate in Laser Tattoo Removal is the most advanced and recognised non-medical aesthetic training available. It is the perfect course for qualified laser therapists with Level 4 Laser and IPL certificates who want to add more treatments to their portfolio.

Imagine this: what if you could have the power to help others rewrite their stories?

As a skilled laser technician, you already have the power to change lives every day. Now, imagine if you could go one step further, helping others erase not only unwanted hair but also rewrite their personal narratives. At Ray Cochrane Beauty Aesthetic Academy, our VTCT Level 5 laser tattoo removal course is taught as a hybrid learning option with theory learning completed online over 2 weeks and practical training in-person over 4 days with our expert tutors. Finally, learners must complete external and internal assignments/case studies to demonstrate the knowledge learnt. Once fully qualified, students can get insurance and start working as laser tattoo removal therapists, changing their clients’ lives and being highly sought out by leading global aesthetic clinics.

We highly recommend those who are already qualified with their level 4 laser and IPL course to complete the Level 5 Laser Tattoo Removal course training as this will put you ahead of your peers in the industry and allow you to get more treatments out of your laser machines.


How to Become a Laser Tattoo Removal Technician?

Course Outline
What will you learn?

On the accredited VTCT Level 5 tattoo removal training, students learn to use Q Switched laser equipment, including Ruby, Alexandrite, Nd:YAG, and frequency doubled Nd:YAG to remove their client’s tattoos successfully. Alongside understanding how these machines remove tattoos, trainees learn to clear tricky tattoo ink colours such as blue, black, red and green on different skin colours. 

As with all the courses at Ray Cochrane, on the laser tattoo removal training course, we will train students to the highest criteria of the aesthetic industry based on employer and occupational standards. The expected standard includes developing their knowledge and understanding of relevant anatomy, physiology, and health and safety of level 5 aesthetic therapies. They will also learn how to transfer their client consultation skills to laser tattoo removal so they can analyse and advise clients accurately. Alongside developing their communication and customer service skills and widening their knowledge of the principles and practices of aesthetic therapies, all of which employers value highly.

All learners are required to produce a portfolio of evidence, perform practicals, review case studies and pass an external practical examination.

To obtain VTCT (ITEC) Level 5 Certificate in Laser Tattoo Removal, you need to learn 4 units and pass an external exam which are:
  • 1 Principles and practice of non-medical aesthetic therapies
  • 2 Advanced consultation for non-medical aesthetic therapies
  • 3 Advanced skin care for non-medical aesthetic therapies
  • 4 Remove or fade tattoos using Q Switched Laser systems
  • 5 Practical Exam by VTCT/ITEC examinor


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!
