Q: Where do IPL/Laser Technicians work?

A: Certified technicians work in an array of professional clinic and skincare settings that include but are not limited to: dermatology offices, skincare clinics, laser hair removal clinics, medical spas, plastic surgeon offices, and more. Some technicians choose to work on a contract basis or even better, start their own business. The opportunities are endless!

Q: Do you offer job placements post-graduation?

A: We receive inquiries from clinics, spas, and other beauty establishments across Canada seeking individuals with CAMACS certification in laser technology, and as much as possible we recommend our students and their abilities. While no beauty academy can "guarantee" every student a job post-certification, we do our very best to assist our graduates in their job search and we believe our reputation and advanced training speaks for itself. We strive to support our graduates in their pursuit of a career in aesthetics and will provide the tools and encouragement necessary to succeed.

Q: Do you sell lasers? What brand?

A: Yes! During your training, our instructor will introduce you to cosmetic laser machines and by the end of your certification, you will have the opportunity to discuss purchasing a machine for your business use. As for the brand, we are not a brand-based training facility and do not promote any specific laser machine name brand. Instead, our training prepares you to work on any cosmetic laser that offers the functions needed for laser treatments. 

Q: How much does the course cost? Do you offer financing?

A: Please contact us for this information! We aim to provide our courses at a competitive rate and as such we are not able to offer financing to students at this time.
