To complete this online education program you would need to set aside about 96 hours and have the ability to apply yourself and study! This may seem like a lot of time and effort to some, but as Seeger mentions “if becoming an optician was quick and easy and anyone could do it then you would not earn a living by being one!” As mentioned before, you can also become a member of OpticianWorks and utilize these online lessons to brush-up on your optical dispensing skills!
OpticianWorks also offers consulting, concentrating in creating custom-designed technical writing products to support the various end customers in the optical industry, tailored to meet your individual needs. Consulting avenues vary, including staff progress reporting and individual product placement. John's diverse experience has given him the ability to develop easily-affordable packages that are just right for each individual case.
