    OPTICAL ASSISTANT TRAINING PROGRAM

    Optical Assistance Training

    Discover a career that combines technology and fashion—and is in demand! Employment of opticians is expected to grow by as much as 18.2 percent from 2014 to 2024, much faster than average.

    The Optical Assistant Training program is designed to help you prepare for an entry-level position as an optical technician or optical lab technician.  Jobs like these require an interesting mix of clinical skills, salesmanship, and style including knowing how to fit eyeglasses for people with eye problems and fill prescriptions from both ophthalmologists and optometrists.
