The Oct. 23 course is primarily intended for persons outside the U.S.. We will NOT be teaching how to fill out FDA lasershow variance forms nor FAA airspace review forms. The LSO certificate will state that the course did not cover FDA or FAA forms.

The timing of the course, middle of the night in the U.S., in also primarily intended for persons on the other side of the globe from the U.S.

This 8 hour course starts Monday October 23, 2023 beginning at 10 pm Eastern Daylight Savings/New York time, running until approximately 6 am Tue. Oct. 24. 

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 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 8 hours. During this time, we will take a 5 minute break every hour, plus one longer 30 minute break for a meal.
