Core of Knowledge is the foundation course to provide you with a fundamental understanding of laser and light technology, how light interacts with skin to produce specific biological effects and how to use laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) safely. It also covers relevant standards and regulations governing their use in a professional setting in different jurisdictions.

The course is broken down into four units of learning followed by multiple-choice questions and you must complete each section before moving on to the next. Additional learning resources and references are also provided. Numerous insurance providers require Core of Knowledge certification to obtain professional indemnity cover and most of the London Boroughs require Core of Knowledge certification to obtain a Special Treatments Licence.

This independently accredited Level 4 online course is worth 3 CPD learning credits which is equivalent to a notional 30 hours of learning. Typically, the course takes 2 days to complete. Distance learning offers more choice and more control over what, how, when and where you learn. We achieve this by using the same quality course materials to present information that we use in our Core of Knowledge face-to-face courses. Student workbooks are provided and the course video which you can play-back multiple times, can be viewed on a desk-top computer, laptop, tablet or iPhone / Android.

All of our courses are independently accredited by OCN Credit4Learning (formerly Open College Network) based in Amersham, United Kingdom. This Accrediting Organisation maps courses to National Academic Standards and provides a valuable Quality Assurance service for training providers. Recipients of OCN Credit4Learning Award certificates benefit from the assurance that the training they have received is underpinned by an organisation that is ISO9001 certified and has mapped and Accredited Online Laser Training courses against nationally recognised Level 3 and Level 4 standards.
