Hello, I work in a locally own optical retail store and have been for the last 4.5 years. I work with patients and the doctor as a type of apprenticeship. I'm looking to become a "Dispensing Optician" Licensed and Certified.
I have a bachelors degree in human services, and have complete courses in algebra and general mathematics. Does this qualify me to sign up and take the ABO? I would like to be able to travel out of state and practice as well. Is this a different certification? Under the supervision of our optometrist I have 4.5 years experience in most of every aspect there is to being an Optician from A to Z.
