Why take this course?

If you're a laser safety officer in a medical facility such as a hospital, surgery center, clinic, or physician’s private practice who must train his or her staff, this is the course to take – without having to bring in an outside expert or send personnel to a course and losing valuable productivity. This short training session will cover the safety basics for those medical personnel operating or working near a laser system. LSOs save their medical facilities time and money while their medical laser personnel upgrade their knowledge at a place and time that works well with their schedule. For the first time, LIA is offering discounts for medical facilities that purchase multiple "seats," so the more employees you enroll, the more you save. Hospitals that have facilities in various locations can administer the same course to employees no matter where they work.
