    Wave Looking for a speaker with dual approved courses

    It is becoming more and more difficult for us to find NCLE speakers and obtain sponsorship. With that being said, we have had speakers in the past who have courses that are both ABO and NCLE approved. This works really well for us in Virginia, a state that requires licensing but not continuing education.

    The ABO is not able to provide a list of speakers or courses, so I'm turning to the optical community in case you know of speakers who have courses that are dual approved or can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance

    You might try contacting the National Federation of Opticianry Schools (NFOS). Many NFOS opticianry instructors have the skill set to present as speakers but may have not bothered to get ABO or NCLE speaker approval.

    It is a nice post. Well, if anyone here needs suggestions for professional Bar prep course then I would highly recommend the TestMax Bar Exam Prep course to you all. This is a wonderful online prep program which helped me pass this test with good score in the last year.
