This ARRA approved course combines the live, Flex-time 40 Hour Basic Laser Didactic Course together with the 48 Hour Flex-Time Clinical Laser Operator Course to provide students who cannot take several days off in a row to complete live, laser training.  Classes will be held one day per week for 11 weeks (or other interval). This is an awesome opportunity for esthetic students currently taking night or day classes or those who don’t want to use all their vacation time to increase their earning potential! EALA is also are offering a “pay as you learn” option by dividing the payment into 11 payments! (each payment is due 2 weeks before class attended). Enrollment is VERY limited for this popular program as is it in high demand.
