The ITEC Level 4 Diploma in Laser & Light Treatments
Before you sign up for another providers course, ask the questions:
- Will you teach with Laser & IPl or just an IPL machine?
- Do you provide the Laser Core of Knowledge Course in your syllabus?
- Are your case studies on real people using the correct treatment protocols and equipment?
- Do you supply models, pre-screened and patch tested?
ATAI provides a completely different training model to any other provider in Ireland. Case studies are performed in combination with pre-screened models and using the correct treatment protocols and technology for each case study, this includes Laser & IPL platforms. This is unique in Ireland and provides the learner with much-needed hands-on experience that theory alone cannot provide. We deliver the Laser Core of Knowledge (CoK) course, underpinning the ITEC course. The Core of Knowledge represents a body of knowledge that underpins the safe use of lasers in clinical practice. It is intended to be undertaken by all staff using a laser (class 3 and 4) and non‐laser (IPL and LED) light sources in a range of applications, including medical, surgical, dental and aesthetic practices.
The course combines all the ITEC Level 4 Laser & Light Certificates into one comprehensive diploma course. Covering, laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, vascular therapy and specific skin complaint treatments.
Delivered in a long course format of 10 classes with practical case studies and shadowing a practitioner. Perfect for people wanting experience in a broad range of treatments.
A course designed to instil a thorough understanding of Laser & IPL based treatment.
Practical learning is fundamental to ATAI courses. An emphasis is placed on real-world case studies using the right technology and treatment protocols. Learners achieve a better understanding of treatment as we use Laser & IPL based platforms. Shadowing in the clinical environment allows learners to understand better why and how treatment and consultation skills are fundamental to Laser & Light-based therapies.
After completing this diploma, you will have a broad understanding of laser & light treatments for:
- Laser hair removal
- Skin rejuvenation
- Vascular therapy

ATAI believe the best way to change an industry is to be what you believe the industry should reflect. ATAI have the framework in place to facilitate a better model for training on laser and light machinery and addressing the lack of quality assured processes that take in OH&S (occupational health and safety). Unlike nearly every training centre in Ireland, ATAI has the machinery that is used in the clinical environment and the experience needed to facilitate excellence in clinical training.
The course is run on Mondays from 10-am to 3-pm over 10 weeks at our Swords location.
With career learning pathways into Level 5 and above, the only thing missing from ATAI is YOU.
