Entry Requirements:

Level 4 Laser requires you to have a minimum of Level 3. We welcome students of all abilities, whether you are looking to learn a new skill from scratch or currently working as a therapist and looking to refresh your knowledge of particular treatments.

Students will require a good command of spoken and written English to complete the VTCT qualification.


Course Structure:

Much of the Level 4 Laser & IPL qualification is completed as online-study, making this an ideal route for those who wish to study flexibly around other commitments. Practical training days at your chosen location will run from 10am-4pm with a short break for lunch.


Assessment is continuous and consists of practical assessments, oral questions, tests and written assignments. The collation of all the assessments will be contained in a portfolio which will contain all document feedback sheets, written assessment/projects/assignments.

Once you have completed all training and coursework, you will arrange to attend a multiple choice written assessment day and practical assessment days to achieve your VTCT qualification.



After completing the course, you will receive your VTCT qualification, a Government-approved Awarding Body, recognised across the world which is fully insurable.


Initially, you will receive a diploma certificate issued by us. This not only demonstrates your commitment to the training, but also allows you to obtain Public Liability insurance so you can start offering treatments to paying clients from home or mobile. You will then receive your VTCT qualification certificate (this can take up to 12 weeks to be released from the awarding body VTCT).


We provide full follow-up support on both our 'JS Community' page and our social media platforms. You can also contact us directly via our 'contact' page.


Career Progression:

All of our diploma courses enable you to work from both home and mobile offering the specialised treatment(s) that you have completed. You can start earning by offering treatments to paying clients as soon as you have obtained your insurance. Facial treatments are hugely in demand to improve the condition of the skin and minimise the effects of aging. This course will enable you to begin earning well within this lucrative treatment area.
