Laser Safety Officer (LSO) course, Hollywood Beach FL - June 12 2023

  • Monday, June 12, 2023
  • 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
  • Online - Zoom



This 9 hour course starts Monday June 12, 2023 beginning at 10 am Eastern Daylight Savings/New York time, running until approximately 7 pm. 

It takes place at the DoubleTree Resort by Hilton in Hollywood Beach, Florida. This is about 20 miles north of downtown Miami; 15 miles north of Miami Beach.

This is for the online ILDA Laser Safety Officer (LSO) for Lasershows course described here. It is NOT for the Laser Operator, Lasershow Safety Inspector, or Audience Scanning courses which are separate, different courses.

The first half of the course is about 3 hours of  instruction using Zoom, followed by a test that takes about 45 minutes. The second half of the course also has 3 hours of 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 non-U.S. 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.) 

Note: The cost of this class is $50 higher than the cost of online classes, or the class at the 2023 ILDA Beach Conference in September, because of the higher expense of having to rent a meeting room at the DoubleTree. On the other hand, many people get more out of an in-person meeting than a long Zoom meeting, so in-person is a benefit.
