Individuals who have had proper training with any organization may make application for Laser Certification by taking the exams and meeting the other requirements of certification. You may schedule testing with proctors who are available worldwide See Exam Locations and download the Certification Handbook for requirements (both links at the left)

The NCLC itself does not offer training but our parent non-profit training organization Affiliates and Associates do.  We would recommend that if you need initial training to qualify to take the NCLC exams that you utilize these groups (see Affiliates & Associates at the left). Proctors with some of these groups are also authorized to administer the NCLC exams to qualified individuals at the end of their training courses which makes testing very convenient for the student, and you benefit from the intensive review session provided prior to examination. Otherwise you may still apply for Certifications using your training certificates from any organization that meets the hours of training requirement for your certification. You do not need to attend training from any of our Affiliates or Associates, as long as you meet the criteria.
