Online LSO

What is the difference between our ‘Online LSO’ and ‘Done in a day’?

We are all time poor and wanting to invest our money in the right places. Here we help you decide which course delivery method is right for you.

‘Online LSO’ 

This one is an E-learning Laser Safety Officer Certificate, and is self paced. This means you can take eight hours or eight years to complete it. You choose. No pressure, and you will never be thrown out of our current system. Ahhhh, the relief!

‘Done in a Day’

This is a Laser Safety Certificate completed in one day, via ZOOM, live and interactive with Adjunct Associate Professor Elissa O'Keefe, where you can ask questions and get involved. This one takes six hours face to face, we usually start at 9.30am. You can do your quiz straight away afterward, or wait and do it at another time if you prefer.

Are they the same course?

Yes! The content of the courses is exactly the same, the online version will have a quiz at the end of each module, just as a self-test (not graded) which ‘Done in a day’ (ZOOM) doesn’t have, but the modules are the same.

Are they delivered in the same way?

No… The online LSO is a self-paced online course, that you can log in and out of at your convenience. You work through alone and can print as you go for the final open book exam. The ‘Done in a day’ version is done via ZOOM on a certain day and time and is live. Both versions have a final exam that is done in your own time.

Which one should I choose?

This depends on two things, what is your available time like and how do you prefer to learn? If you are able to dedicate a day to getting the course done, and like to be live and interact, then the ‘Done in a Day’ is great for you, if you are busy and have other commitments, or prefer to work alone, then the online version is best.
