Why take this course?

If you’re a laser safety officer 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 operating or working near laser systems. LSOs save their companies time and money while their 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 companies that purchase multiple “seats,” so the more employees you enroll, the more you save. Companies that have facilities in various locations can administer the same course to employees no matter where they work.
