Courses Offered

Our classes are small, with no more than four students at any time.  Most times we teach one-on-one.  This way, your learning experience is maximized and we are able to work around your busy schedule. You will experience personal attention, probably unavailable at any other school.

Nobody fails a course; we work with you until we are satisfied that you will be a safe, competent laser technician.  Then and only then will your certificates of completion be released to you.

We teach in Phoenix and Tucson.  In Tucson, we teach at Elcon Health Medspa, a full-service medspa with state-of-the-art equipment.  In Phoenix, we use existing facilities, also with top-of-the-line equipment.

We are also happy to teach at your facility and use your equipment whenever possible. If you do not yet have a facility or equipment, we make other arrangements with existing facilities in Phoenix .  We adjust out prices, depending upon the number of students in a class. The more students, the better the deal. Many people put together their own groups.
