OUR PIONEERING LASER/IPL/RF TRAINING COURSES CAN HELP PUT YOU LIGHT YEARS AHEAD

Welcome to Australia's leading - and most experienced - provider of nationally recognised LASER and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) training in the cosmetic and therapeutic field.
 
Our company, Laser Therapy & Natural Medicine Pty Ltd, trades under the name of Laser Therapy Centre. In 2003, we pioneered the development of Australia's first accredited short courses in:
  • LASER and IPL for hair reduction, vascular-pigmentation-scar treatments and photo rejuvenation; and
  • LASER Therapy integrated with acupuncture techniques for muscular-skeletal and dermatolical conditions.
Raising the training bar
 
In 2011, we raised the accredited training bar yet again with two new high-level courses that provide the most advanced light-based courses available under the Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF). They are:
 
NRT_Logo.jpg - small1. The Vocational Graduate Diploma of LASER/Intense Pulsed Light/Radio Frequency for Hair Reduction and Dermal/Vein Treatments (91540NSW)
 
2. The Vocational Graduate Diploma of Laser Integrative Medicine with Acu-point Techniques (91551NSW)
 
These two high-level courses are graded at Level 8 under the Australian Qualifications Frameworkwork (AQF). They are exclusive to our training organisation and lead to the most advanced accredited
LASER/IPL training available in Australia.
 
Courses 91540NSW and 91551NSW were accredited by the NSW Vocational Education Training Accreditation Board (VETAB) under the Australian Quality Training Framework.
 
Both courses are aimed at health and beauty professionals who want to deliver a comprehensive range of treatments that are safe, effective and of the highest standard.

Course 91540NSW expands on the hair removal only units of competency provided in the SIB70110 Vocational Graduate Certificate in Intense Pulsed Light and Laser Hair Reduction offered in the SIB10 National Beauty Package.
 
The Vocational Graduate Diploma in Laser/IPL/RF provides training in the theoretical and clinical application of permanent hair reduction plus a far wider range of technologies and more advanced treatments, including:
  • Photo rejuvenation
  • Pigmentation
  • Veins
  • Tattoo removal.
Light-based devices used in this course include Alexandrite, diode, Nd:YAG and fractional lasers, IPL and RF.
