To become a CMLSO, you must meet specific requirements and pass a comprehensive certification examination that is intended to promote professional advancement. This certification exam is given by the Board of Laser Safety (BLS).The CMLSO examination is offered by the BLS via paper-and-pencil in the Spring and Fall, and is also available via computer-based testing centers through Prov Inc. For the most up-to-date test dates and locations, visit the BLS website. This course fulfills the laser safety officer training prerequisite for the CMLSO exam. If you are interested in taking this optional CMLSO exam, please visit the BLS to review eligibility requirements. All applications must be submitted to the BLS at least 2-weeks prior to the exam date. All fees associated with the CMLSO examination are to be paid directly to the Board of Laser Safety.
