    This 9 hour course starts Monday, October 3, 2022 beginning at 10 am Eastern/New York time, running until approximately 7 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.)

    This is to register for the half-day ILDA Audience Scanning Safety class. This covers how to do safe, legal and effective audience scanning at laser lightshows.


    This class is for both operators (responsible for safe exposure) and show designers (responsible for implementation and measurements). Prior laser show safety experience or courses are recommended. If you do not have such prior experience/courses, or if you have questions, please contact the instructor, Greg Makhov, at greg@lsdi.com. Greg is ILDA's Safety Committee chair and an instructor for other laser safety classes.

    (Note: The Audience Scanning Safety class is NOT included in the ILDA Conference registration. The class is a separate event, requiring separate registration and fees. If there is insufficient interest -- not enough registrants -- the class will be cancelled and registration fee will be refunded.)

    This is to register for the full-day ILDA Laser Safety Officer for U.S. Lightshows class. This covers laser shows only -- no medical, industrial or other non-lightshow laser usage. While European and international regulations are discussed, the majority of the regulatory discussion is on U.S. laser and aviation issues.


    To take this class, you must have prior laser show experience, or have taken ILDA's Laser Operator Safety course.  If you have questions whether you are ready for this class, contact the instructor.

    More information on the class is at the ILDA Laser Safety Officer course webpage.

    (Note: The LSO class is NOT included in the ILDA Conference registration. The LSO class is a separate event, requiring separate registration and fees. If there is insufficient interest -- not enough registrants -- the class will be cancelled and registration fee will be refunded.))
