Optician Certification Training

opitician-certification-training
$1,895.00 (USD)

OVERVIEW

No matter which area of opticianry you choose, you’ll be in high demand in the job market because the need for eye care professionals is constantly expanding. It may surprise you to learn that while our eyes are healthier in many ways than in the past, some eye problems are actually growing more common due to changes in our lifestyles and the aging population.

For instance, the incidence of myopia (nearsightedness) is growing rapidly. In fact, experts estimate that nearsightedness will increase by 50% over the next decade. It may be because we spend more time doing close work and less time outside. Other eye problems, such as presbyopia (the poor near vision that develops as we age), are also increasing as our population gets older.

In this course, you can gain the skills and knowledge you need to obtain an entry-level job as an optician in the states that recognize this certification. In addition, you’ll prepare to take the Basic American Board of Opticianry (ABO) exams, which includes the NOCE (National Opticianry Competency Exam) and the CLRE (Contact Lens Registry Exam), which is required by many states to work as an optician or as a stepping-stone to career advancement.

After successfully completing this course, you will possess the knowledge required to pass the American Board of Opticianry (ABO), National Opticianry Certification Exam (NOCE) exam, or Contact Lens Registry Exam (CLRE). However, we do recommend researching your state's requirements prior to pursuing a career as an optician. While some states only require a high school diploma or GED and passing score on the ABO exam to fulfill licensing requirements, others have their own optician licensing exams. Additionally, some states may require that opticians complete an apprenticeship program or degree program in order to become licensed.
