If you are new to the world of Lasers and light based technology, be prepared with the basics before you start using Laser and IPL medical devices. Core of Knowledge and the Level 4 Foundation Course is the best place to start.

If you are already using light based medical devices in your work place, AT Laser Training courses will enable you to develop a much deeper knowledge base as you practice in your clinic.

Online courses include:

  • Core of Knowledge Laser User - Level 4
  • Laser and IPL Foundation Module - Level 3
  • Laser and IPL Hair Removal - Level 4
  • Laser and IPL Skin Rejuvenation - Level 4
  • Core of Knowledge for Laser Protection Supervisor - Level 5
  • Tattoo Removal - Level 5


‘Core of Knowledge’ (CoK) can now be done as an Online Training distance-learning course to provide you with a fundamental understanding of laser and light technology.

Core of Knowledge module is a basic requirement for laser/IPL operators to satisfy all insurance companies.

It is also a legal obligation in some UK jurisdictions (Wales & N.I.) that a ‘Core of Knowledge’ course from a recognised approved trainer is provided as a requirement of registration and/or licencing.

The course must be written and delivered by a physics expert who has been certified to deliver Core of Knowledge material.

AT Skin and Laser (ATSL) Core of Knowledge Online Qualification has been written and developed by a very experienced and respected Laser expert, Dr Godfrey Town Ph.D.

AT Skin and Laser

Aesthetic Training by Alicia Trenchard

Over the last 17 years I have delivered hands on training with lasers and IPL systems (as well as skin care products, chemical peels etc)

During this time I have trained many dozens – dare I say, possibly hundreds of therapists, nurses and doctors, and have worked with many brands of light based systems including Cutera, Viora, Cynosure, Lumenis, Alma, Lynton, Ellipse and Lutronic.

Development of training materials over the years have involved the privilege of working closely with other industry experts and organisations such as Dr Elizabeth Raymond, CIBTAC, VTCT, and various LPA’s such as John Kyriou from St Georges hospital and most recently, Anita Clarkson and Godfrey Town.

Godfrey Town is a physics expert and scientist specialising in the energy output of IPL and laser devices and was awarded his Ph.D. for original research in light-based skin therapy.

I am pleased to present these accredited Level 4 and 5 online qualifications in Light based technology, that will create the necessary knowledge base to support the practical application of these medical devices.

Enjoy your learning!
