Applications close on 1 August for courses at ABDO College including Ophthalmic Dispensing, Contact Lens Certificate, Optical Assistant and Senior Optical Assistant.
Steve Hertz, head of operations at ABDO College, said: “If you are looking at the next steps for your career now is the time to apply for courses starting this September.”
Those seeking to develop their knowledge as an optical assistant – and gain the requisite knowledge to apply for the Ophthalmic Dispensing course in a year’s time – are invited to consider applying for the Optical Assistant and Senior Optical Assistant courses.
ABDO College’s Ophthalmic Dispensing diploma and degree courses enable students to gain a professional qualification and develop their career as a dispensing optician.
Dispensing opticians who want to move into a more clinical role may also wish to look at the Contact Lens Certificate course, which leads to the FBDO CL qualification.
All courses allow students to learn while they earn. Payment plans are available to allowing applicants or their employer to spread the cost over affordable monthly instalments.
