This level of certification is for anyone who practices laser hair removal, including physicians, nurses, medical estheticians, electrologists and physician assistants. To sit for the CLHRP® exam, one must currently practice laser hair removal. It is highly recommended that appropriate laser courses be completed prior to sitting for this exam. Experience in or knowledge of other hair removal modalities is a plus.
The CLHRP® was first administered in 2004, and was written and later revised by physicians, nurses and electrologists who are experts in this field. This 100-question exam consists of a wide-range of laser-related topics such as treatment techniques, patient assessment and patient follow-up. For a more complete list of topics, please view the CLHRP® Content Assessment.
The CLHRP® is valid for five years. After that time, one must either retake the exam or complete 75 hours of SCMHR-approved continuing education.
