How long does it take to become a laser technician?
Depending on which course you do and which state you live in will determine how long it will take.…
Obtaining a laser safety certificate on its own can take as little as eight hours. This is your starting point. In some states and for some roles, this is all you will need, and in other states you will need to do some practical hours too, as there are different licencing laws across the states. If you are not sure of your are a's legislation, reach out we would love to help.
