How long does it take?
Eight to ten hours at your own pace, in your own time and you can take as long as you like to do it. Assessment is a two hour, online, open book exam. This course meets the AHPRA requirements for continuing professional development.
What about practical experience?
Laser and IPL equipment availability is diverse across Australia and there is no one place to be able to practice on all of the equipment available. Bravura Education recommends that after you have completed your online theory courses that you work within your scope of practice (skill set), identify a more experienced clinical mentor to assist you to develop your skills, ensure that you have standard operating policy and procedures in place, liaise with the manufacturer of the specific machinery that you will be using and begin to record practical experience in a clear log book if you are required to for state licensing regulation.
