Basics of Laser Technology – One Day
Availability: This course is currently available publicly in the USA throug our partners, Laser Professionals.
This is a one-day beginning course in laser technology for those who want a more thorough understanding of laser technology before they start a more advanced laser safety course.
We highly recommend this course to safety personnel who are new to lasers, and to supervisors tasked with supervising laser systems and machinery incorporating lasers.
The course is designed for personnel who have no prior experience with lasers. Get a comprehensive understanding of the basics of lasers, optics, and laser applications before attendingmore advanced laser safety training. If you are new to lasers, this course will provide you with a thorough understanding of the fundamentals and solid preparation for laser safety training. If you have worked with or around lasers but desire a greater depth of understanding, there will be plenty of opportunities to ask all those questions that you have always wondered about but could never get answered.
Course materials include many useful tidbits for those making laser measurements or specifying laser systems. This course is also lots of fun and a great way to begin your laser safety training.
