Learning to laser
With a huge increase in demand for laser hair removal and the rise in popularity of tattoo removal and vascular treatments, it’s little wonder that a growing number of professionals are seeking out ways to learn this invaluable new skill.
Delegates attend laser courses for a variety of reasons, from those who are completely new to the sector, through to experienced practitioners who wish to broaden their knowledge.
Mapperley Park Training Academy in Nottingham provides training in laser and light therapies from industry experts, welcoming practitioners of every level from all over the UK and worldwide. In the last two years, demand for the courses at Mapperley Park has almost doubled.
Glenda Bailye-Bray, head of learning and development at Mapperley Park says: ‘The general public’s awareness of the often life-changing results that laser can bring is growing. In turn, demand for quality training has also grown.’
These courses offer delegates the opportunity to develop their knowledge and understanding of lasers and light and how it reacts with the tissue in a variety of treatments, as well as core knowledge in hair removal, tattoo removal, non-ablative water targeting, and vascular treatments.
The courses in laser and light available at Mapperley Park successfully combine theory with practical demonstrations. Entry requirements vary by course, but there are no specific qualification requirements for the level four courses, which are suitable for all, just a desire to learn the subject and a good understanding of both verbal and written English.
The team at Mapperley Park is continually looking to develop the newest and most advanced courses available, this is demonstrated by the recent launch of three innovative and accredited BTEC qualifications that provide credible, quality training and development in lasers. Mapperley Park also offers a progression route for BTEC qualifications in lasers and light therapies, enabling learners to progress to a BTEC level five certificate.
