- Course Description
Apprentice in Training is often the first class we suggest our students take if they are looking to enter the world of medical aesthetics. This is the first portion of training required to obtain your Laser Hair Removal Technician License.
Subjects covered in Apprentice in Training will also suffice for Laser Hair Removal Continuing Education Hour Requirements.
You will be introduced to a variety of subjects, ranging from patient consultations to laser physics. This is what we sometimes refer to as the “driver’s ed” of Laser, (though way less snooze-worthy), simply because it is the required foundation you need to advance to additional laser courses. And even though this course is a state requirement, we like to think that Apprentice in Training is so good, you’d want to join in even if it wasn’t.
At Texas Laser and Aesthetics, not only do we take a great amount of pride in the quality of our education, we love providing our students with a comfortable and, dare we say it…FUN learning environment. Apprentice in Training is a 4-day, 40-hour course taught by instructors who are passionate about sharing their years of knowledge and experience to those getting started in the medical aesthetics industry. Your time is valuable, so know that at TLATA we are dedicated to making each hour interesting and worthwhile.
