    And why would they not want to go to one of our fine schools? We should be supporting education for Opticians, not relying on the very distant past. Good luck in your search for a program that meets your needs. It is the best way to learn the knowledge, skill and abilities required of a professional Optician.

    The best decision I ever made, in regards to my career, was enrolling in an optical college. Hillsborough CC to be exact.

    You may wish to seek a COA accredited school, as the degree is accepted in all licensing states. http://www.coaccreditation.com/programs.shtml
