Laser & IPL Protection Supervisor / LSO COK Level 4


‘Core of Knowledge’ Laser Protection Supervisor / LSO – Level 4


This more advanced course is intended for experienced laser / IPL operators who are responsible for supervision of all light-based devices in the establishment. The entire Level 4 module is divided into the same 4 units as the Level 3 course with strengthened Assessment Criteria and Assessment Evidence.

It is a legal obligation in some UK jurisdictions (e.g. Wales & N.I.) and in some states of Australia, that a Laser Protection Supervisor (LPS) / Laser Safety officer (LSO) is appointed. This role involves application of knowledge in a broad range of professional and technical work activities with a substantial degree of personal responsibility and working autonomy. Responsibility for the work of others and the allocation of resources is often present.

A deeper understanding of the content of the Laser User Core of Knowledge training video and workbooks is required to answer the more challenging multiple-choice assessments at the end of each section. Additional downloadable workbook material is also provided to assist you with independent study and critical assessment of laser safety requirements in your establishment.

You will be required to provide evidence of completion of a recognised Core of Knowledge / Laser User course (either completion of the OLT Laser User course or a scanned copy of a recognized Core of Knowledge / Laser User course completed within the preceding 3 years. In addition, you will submit a developed set of Local Rules or Working Rules / Radiation Protection Plan (in AUS/NZ) for the specific device(s) used in the learner’s establishment, complete a choice of 4 independent written tasks from 11 possible tasks and a randomly selected written Assignment by OLT.

The learning outcome is an independently accredited, nationally recognized, Level 4 Award to the named student. This online course is worth 3 learning credits (which is equivalent to a notional 30hrs of learning). Typically, the course is expected to take 1 - 2 weeks to complete depending on the practical experience of the learner.
