This is for the online ILDA Laser Safety Officer (LSO) - Lasershows course described here. It is NOT for the Laser Operator, Laser Safety Inspector, or Audience Scanning courses which are separate, different courses.
The first part of the course is about 5-6 hours of online instruction using Cisco Webex or Zoom. We will take short breaks every hour, and a longer half-hour meal break.
After this, there is a test which takes up to 2 hours for students to complete (still staying online during the test). After all tests are in, the instructor goes over the answers. So the total course time is roughly 8 to 8 1/2 hours.
A few days before the course starts, ILDA will email to each student the course manual and the Cisco Webex or Zoom log-in instructions.
For the LSO classes during April and May 2020, ILDA is offering a special, one-time discount. The discount depends on whether you are an ILDA Member, and is deeper for ILDA Corporate Members who pay more in dues. (If you are a Member, but you only see the non-member price, be sure to log in to the site before you come back to this page.)
