The Role of the Laser Protection Advisor

Core of Knowledge Laser Safety Training

All clinics and salons operating a LASER or IPL device are required to employ the services of a Certificated Laser Protection Advisor (LPA).  This is a requirement of Local Authorities for the non-healthcare sector, and the CQC for businesses employing medical professional in the healthcare sector.


Our certificated Laser Protection Advisor provides support to businesses across the UK, delivering expert advice on all relevant matters of laser safety.  By working closely with our clients, we are able to ensure they have the knowledge, suitable protocols, and support to operate their laser or IPL device safely.

After an initial on-site inspection and risk assessment, our LPA will work with you to produce a suitable Local Rules document to work by and ensure your laser business meets all the relevant standards and regulations, with on-going support.

We also have an associated Expert Medical Practitioner (EMP) who we can recommend if these services are also required by your Local Authority.


Please call, email, or complete our online enquiry form, if you would like to learn more about our LPA support and training services.

The 'Core of Knowledge' laser safety course is the national minimum requirement for operating a high power laser or IPL (intense pulsed light) system. The course covers the fundamentals of laser and light technology, their interaction with biological tissue, how to use them safely, and the relevant standards and regulations governing their use.


As is now required by local authorities, our Core of Knowledge training is delivered directly by our certificated LPA, who will come to you for your convenience. The course is available in addition to our LPA support package, or on its own.


Our Core of Knowledge course has been developed by our Laser Protection Advisor in compliance with BMLA guidelines and the MHRA syllabus for laser and IPL safety.
