State License Requirements
To become a professional laser technologist in Tennessee, you should complete a course or program that is recognized by the National Council on Laser Certification (NCLC) to qualify for work in this state. Although there is not an official license for laser techs in TN, doctors will want to know you are trained and registered to feel confident you can deliver quality care to patients.
To work independently with a laser, you must be completely aware of the safety precautions and risks that come with this technology. For that reason, you may spend some time in the classroom studying theory and learning how lasers work. However, you'll spend much more time gaining practical experience and getting comfortable using a laser. In addition, you may get to watch your instructors perform laser hair removal and assess the work of your peers.
License renewal period
Continuing education required
When you register, you will need to keep up with the renewal process, which takes place every three years. Just submit this application, along with a fee for $95 to remain in good standing.
