Hi, my name is Emily Goedtel, and I attended National Laser Institute in Febuary of 2006. Two months after attending I landed a job at a great medical spa and work with a prominent dermatologist. I have been there for almost two years now, and I thank National Laser Institute for helping make that a reality! I don’t think it would have been possible to secure a job in a medical setting without the professional trainning of National Laser Institute on my resume. I am so grateful for the trainning and recommend National Laser Institute to anyone in the field! Thanks National Laser Institute, and staff!– Emily Goedtel, Skin Speaks MedSpa (Burnsville, MN)

I took the Comprehensive Laser course at National Laser Institute in May 2009, I interviewed a week after returning home with several laser centers and received job offers immediately! I accepted a position at a Dr’s office and began working less than a month after graduating.At my interview I asked if he would like any referrals and his response was “knowing you graduated from National Laser Institute is referral enough for me”. I have had extreme success and am so excited and confident in my new career! A special thanks to everyone at National Laser Institute for the amazing training and continued support following my completion! I could not have asked for a better experience and would recommend anyone attend your school. Thanks again!!

National Laser Institute has helped me immensely in my new career. I had no prior experience in the field, and almost immediately I had job offers! I was also very impressed with the ongoing help and information I received after my class ended. Anytime I had questions I would call and receive a prompt response. I am happy with my new job and I learned so much in 2 short weeks.

Hi there! I graduated from National Laser Institute in Feb. of 07. I own my own equipment and work half time as a cosmetologist and half time as a laser tech in White Bear Lake MN. I LOVE my job!

Thanks National Laser Institute for rocking my world!!– Lisa Kieger, Lasers By Lisa (White Bear Lake, MN)

I decided to leave the declining Real Estate market for a complete career change towards Laser & Medical Aesthetics. In Jan. 2010, I graduated from National Laser Institute’s Comprehensive Laser Course! I really believe “You get what you pay for!” Other laser schools offered me slightly cheaper classes, but attending National Laser Institute’s program was the best decision I ever made! I received exceptional hands-on training with the most elite laser machines and one-on-one time with their expert instructors. I made so many new friends, and the staff encouraged our success the entire way! They even helped me land my dream job at a very reputable Med Spa in New York City! Thank You National Laser Institute for such a memorable experience!– Andrea Silvas (New York City, NY)

One hour after receiving my training certificates, Crissy in admissions called me to let me know that a NY doctor called National Laser Institute and left a message about wanting to hire one of their graduates. I got a job interview with him for that Friday, not even one week after graduating! The day after I got home, I started calling local med spas and salons so that I could check out all of my options. I kept calling, and finally one woman gave me a job interview that SAME DAY. She hired me on the spot. On my way home I stopped at one of the places that said no to me by phone that I was really interested in, and I gave them my resume in person. I ended up walking to the back office for another interview, they showed me the machine they use, I spoke to the owner, and next thing I knew I had another job!!! Persistence paid off!– Stephanie Fox
