Laser Safety Officer Course ED194
Approved for: Theoretical components of the required competencies for people wishing to obtain a Use Licence and Radiation Safety Officer certificate for laser cosmetic and medical procedures.
This course follows Australian and New Zealand Standards: AS/NZS 4173:2004 Guide to the Safe use of Lasers in Health Care. This is a two-day theory course giving laser and IPL science knowledge and safety guidelines for using these devices. in some Australian states this course is required as part of obtaining a Use Licence. In non-regulated states it is still strongly recommended as a way of understanding laser and IPL technology and for guidelines on necessary standard operating procedures. Many insurance companies insist all staff using a laser or IPL show proof of such Laser Safety certification before they will insure the clinic/salon.
There are numerous Laser Safety courses available in Australia including a number of on-line courses. Trudy’s training differs from others in a number of ways. Her course is more interactive, you can ask wide ranging questions and get answers that will help relate the science of laser with what you want to do in your clinic or practice. Trudy will link the science to the various wavelengths of laser and what treatments can be done with different devices and parameters available. This will bring what is normally a rather “dry” topic alive and relate it to what you will be doing or open your eyes to new possibilities. Trudy relays the information in terms that is easily understandable, making this rather technical subject accessible to all participants.
