International Year of Light

The International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies (IYL 2015) was proclaimed during the 68th session of the United Nations General Assembly at the end of last year.

This is a chance to raise public awareness at the diverse applications of light in modern life, including medical and aesthetic treatments and diagnostics.

There is a particular focus on the science underlying the work that we do.  This is an excellent opportunity to raise the profile of our work in the public and political arenas.

New Core of Knowledge Courses
Thursday, 12 June 2014 13:31
A new Core of Knowledge syllabus has been developed and approved by British Medical Laser Association, Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, and Society for Radiological Protection.
The Society for Radiological Protection - SRP

This is an area where there are rapid technical advances and there is also a wide diversity of laser users. The updated syllabus reflects the changing needs of laser and IPL user

A new Laser and IPL Safety Awareness syllabus has also been produced. This is an innovation that recognises the value of providing awareness training to staff who are not directly operating the laser. This does not seek to deliver knowledge to the depth that is required in a full Core of Knowledge course.
