Laser Safety Officer (LSO) course at SELEM - August 8, 2023

  • Tuesday, August 08, 2023
  • 8:30 AM - 5:30 PM
  • SELEM, Newark, Delaware


Registration is closed

This 9 hour course starts Tuesday August 8, 2023 beginning at 8:30 am Eastern Daylight Savings/New York time, running until approximately 5:30 pm -- hopefully earlier. It takes place during the SELEM meeting, at the Executive Banquet & Conference Center in Newark, Delaware.

This is for the 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 online instruction, 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 short breaks 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.
