Build your career and be highly employable
This is the fundamental certification you need to operate a laser or IPL in Australia. It is the only course in Australia that offers a module in common cosmetic treatments that articulates into an advanced accreditation course so you can build on your knowledge and expand your clinical skills in a logical fashion. If you have no previous experience in the industry we suggest that you do both this course and the Advanced course before you consider working in the industry.
Do you want to expand your knowledge, gain certification and offer a wide variety of service to your clients?
Are you a beauty therapist expanding your menu of services? Are you setting up a new skin clinic? A nurse who wants to work in cosmetic nursing, plastic surgery or dermatology? A doctor who wants to practice cosmetic medicine? A dentist who is offering facial aesthetic services? Just have an interest in the area and think you might like to start your career? Then this is where you start on your laser/IPL education journey.

Training with Bravura Education allowed our staff to study in their own time, at their own speed and has given them the confidence to be on the floor and up and running quickly. Suzie Hoitink RN (Owner and founder, Clear Complexions Clinics, 2016)

What is it about?
- Light physics discusses the science of light and concepts such as the electromagnetic spectrum, selective photothermolysis and the interactions between light and the skin.
- Laser and IPL systems gives an overview of how the technology works.
- Regulation covers legislation, regulation and standards both nationally and those pertaining to the state-based requirements set out for Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania.
- Safety is the largest topic and ensures the participant understands the requirements for client and staff safety, personal protective equipment, controlled access to laser rooms and laser safety planning and auditing.
- Common clinical applications of lasers and IPL in clinical practice.
Who is it for?
GPs, doctors, nurses, beauty therapists and other dermal clinicians or skin therapists.
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.
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.
