Our Revival Clinic was the first spa to have a laser machine in the UK. All of our laser teachers have over 15 years and 1000’s of hours of experience working on all kinds of lasers with every skin and hair type possible.

We aim not just pass an exam or be safe but we will make you a better business owner or therapist. Our students often comment on the amount of mentoring that is involved with our courses inside and outside of the treatment room.

Council License


Recognised laser qualifications are now mandatory and the councils across the country and no longer accept supplier certificates.

Councils are now clamping down on uncertified laser practitioners. We have been working closely with the councils in order to provide training that exceeds their expectations and the written reviews from the councils have reflected that.

The Level 4 course covers core of knowledge, meaning there is no need for you to pay extra for this course, however your local councils will need you to update the core of knowledge certificate every 3 years.

Recognised Prior Learning (RPL)


If you are already trained in laser by a supplier and do not have a VTCT Level 4 qualification, we can recognise your prior learning with 1 day of assessments.
