(Advanced course for ~6 hours of CE)

The Michigan College of Optometry of Ferris State University, in its ongoing role of supporting the educational needs of eyecare professionals, announces the offering of the course, Advanced Practical Training for Opticians.

This course is being held as a response to the overwhelming requests for an additional training event focused upon more advanced Opticianry skills.  There will be a limit of 10 attendees per event to ensure maximum interaction with our expert instructor.

The advanced training program is designed for those who have had extensive experience in the optical field and a good understanding of the science of optics and ophthalmic lenses.  The attendee should possess a working knowledge of progressive addition lenses, refractive index, base curves, slab-off, ophthalmic lens materials (plastic, polycarbonate, high index material, etc.) in order to maximize learning.  If the attendee does not have these prerequisites, they should attend our Basic Practical Training for Opticians course which introduces the basic foundation for working in the optical field.
