Am I qualified to take the course?
You are coming to school to get a job, so it’s all about gainful employment. Requirements vary from state to state and the majority of employers will want you to also perform facials, microderms, waxing, chemical peels and other services that only a licensed esthetician can legally perform. So you will be at a disadvantage when applying for a job if you can’t perform these other services. However, if you are going to open a business for yourself, most states will only require that you have a medical director (physician) oversee your facility.
Please see our compilation of your state’s requirements. We attempt to keep up with every rule from every state, but that’s usually not practical. Please do your own due diligence and research to find out your state’s laws.

Our course is designed to get you a job in the cosmetic laser industry. The majority of employers will want you to also perform facials, microderms, waxing, chemical peels and other services that only a licensed esthetician can legally perform. So you will be at a disadvantage when applying for a job if you can’t perform other services.
Do you teach Botox and fillers?
No. Our course teaches cosmetic laser treatments.
Travel plans and where do I stay?
Book your flight to arrive at DIA sometime Sunday and to leave LATER afternoon on the following Saturday. You can Uber to a hotel of your choice, but we highly suggest the Hyatt House Belmar. It is only a few blocks away from the College and it is in a shopping district with a Target and anything else you may be looking for.
