Course attender

The course met my expectations. I have gathered a lot of information about the safety aspect regarding using laser therapy. All information was clear and precise and relevant to my practice. The quality of the information was very good and very clear and precise to understand. Josette skills, knowledge and ability was coming across throughout the course therefore it was making it easy for my own understanding as the information and clear and easy to understand. The entire course led into each slide which was helpful to follow and understand the information. And sections were broken up into different parts therefore it was easy to follow and not just a big jump of information. I would recommend this course to anyone that wants to learn about safety aspect of using laser therapy.
