laser hair removal training course

Something you may be unaware of is that from January 2016, you will have to hold a Level 4 Qualification in Laser and IPL treatments to be able to use Laser and IPL machines. This is a mandatory rule, as set forth by the regulating bodies for the UK and Ireland.

I personally feel that this is a huge step forward in regulating these treatments as before, one could learn how to hold the laser machine, zap a few areas and achieve their certificate in a few hours, without actually knowing the full extent of the technology they were using.

Clients were also unaware of how easily attained these “certificates” used to be. Therapists were not confident in their knowledge, they didn’t have the experience of treating certain conditions i.e. hair removal, pigmentation and skin rejuvenation. They could have very easily put clients at risk of laser burns, hyperpigmentation and scarring. Some of you may remember how expensive Laser Treatments and IPL treatments were 10+ years ago and were that wasted money? Was that carried out by someone who did a one-day course?

Well not anymore!

These regulations have put the safety of clients and therapists first and now everyone must be Level 4 qualified.

Here at The Ray Cochrane Beauty School, we always put a great deal of care and attention into our lessons and hygiene, health and safety are at the forefront. Our Lecturers will monitor the progress of every student and if our standards are not met, then further training is offered before a certificate is awarded.
