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.
