LSO-Lasershows course online - Nov 10/11 2022

  • Thursday, November 10, 2022
  • 7:00 PM
  • Friday, November 11, 2022
  • 4:00 AM
  • Online - Zoom


  • This is for persons needing an LSO course, at a time when ILDA would not normally be running an LSO course. YOU WILL HAVE BEEN NOTIFIED BY ILDA, IN AN EMAIL, IF YOU HAVE TO PAY THIS. Note the following: 1) it is once per course (not once per person), 2) you still have to register for the course, 3) ILDA can allow others to also attend the course -- this does not mean a private course.

Registration is closed

This 9 hour course starts Thursday, November 10, 2022 beginning at 7 pm Eastern/New York time, running until approximately 4 am Friday, Nov. 11. This time has been set to also be (relatively) convenient for China, where the course starts Friday, Nov. 11 at 8 am, running until approximately 5 pm.

The date and time of an online LSO class can be changed if no one has yet signed up for a class. For example, if you are in a time zone far from US Eastern, we can change the hours so it fits your schedule. If you are interested in a class but need a date or time change, contact ILDA. Once at least one person signs up, then the date and time will no longer be changed.

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 half of the course is about 3 hours of online instruction using Zoom, followed by a test that takes about 45 minutes. The second half of the course also has 3 hours of online instruction followed by a second test lasting 75 minutes. After all tests have been turned in, the instructor goes over the answers. The total course time is roughly 9 hours. During this time, we will take a 5 minute break every hour, plus one longer 30 minute break for a meal.  

There is a course option where a student can skip the detailed FDA variance and FAA outdoor laser show form-filling-out information. They will still take the test and can get a Certificate; it will state that the course did not cover FDA or FAA forms. Let us know by email if you will be using this option.

ILDA Members receive a discount . (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.)
