In-Person Course Attendance Resumes in June

ULDue to the Covid pandemic, we have been conducting our LSO courses via teleconferencing only.

We now feel that we have arrived at the point where we can resume in-person attendance, as well as attendance via teleconferencing, starting with our June LSO courses.

The June courses are being held in Raleigh-Durham, NC on the following dates:

About the Laser Safety Officer Course:

The Laser Safety Course begins with a review of basic laser operation with emphasis on those laser characteristics that are important in understanding the laser hazard evaluation for the LSO. After a review of the biological basis, the student will complete an in-depth computation workshop that covers MPE, AEL, NHZ and OD factors. An in-depth discussion of the controls of laser hazards is included.

Options for on-site training programs will be presented including video examples and interactive video/computer programming. Medical surveillance testing will be discussed including examples of various tests. The course concludes with a session on non-beam hazards associated with laser use (i.e. fumes, shock, plume, etc.) with emphasis on industrial hygiene-based solutions.

About the Principles of Lasers Course:

For those who are new to lasers or wish to take a refresher, our Principles of Lasers course is available the day before the LSO course, on April 25, 2022. This one-day introductory course is designed for those responsible for operating and maintaining laser systems, providing a solid introduction to lasers. It also provides a knowledge base for those who plan to continue their professional development and will be attending the Laser Safety Officer (LSO) course.
