eye pointerWhat our customers are saying

This is a very well written system to either jump start a newbie or home the skill of a seasoned optician. This training system does just that. I have all of my new employees use this program during their first 3 months on the job. I don’t think there is a better optician training tool out there for the optician.”

This has become the ‘turn to guide’ for our staff’s questions. It is an easy and useful resource when dealing with training new opticians and problem solving. Well written. It is highly recommended.”

Afantastic professional resource. I have over 15 opticians in Southern California and I use OptiQuick to continue training them on a weekly basis. This is required training for any of my new hires. If you want to increase your sales or just understand optics more fully, this is the optician training program for you.”

Excellent training! This is written in a very concise manner using terminology that is easily understood regardless of your experience level. I highly recommend this training program to everyone in the optical industry.”

This is a great program for all staff members to read and study. Although the title is ‘OptiQuick’ there is a wealth of information contained in the videos that can be used to train all staff members, and should not be limited just to your opticians.”

These videos have a wealth of information in an organized, intelligently written manner. A comprehensive optician training program that saves having to pull multiple resources to help an optician obtain mastery of the information and skills necessary for a successful practice. Excellent illustrations, helpful focus points and test questions. As a practicing ophthalmologist, I would also recommend the manual for doctors to prepare meaningful training sessions for their back office and optical staff. Implementing only a few of the pearls in this program should make a noticeable improvement in the optician skills of any practice.

While we specialize in small group and individual study, we are trusted by:

Your training program should work hard, so you don’t have to. It’s time to put your optician training on autopilot.

Lets be honest. You are always the leader. The one all the responsibilities fall upon. There’s just one problem…. training to become an optician, or training a staff of opticians, can be an expensive, daunting, and time consuming task. Optician training takes time, it takes energy, it takes creativity, it takes ideas. We all start out with good intentions, but along the way, we get distracted or discouraged.

But it does not have to be this way. You just need a different approach.

An affordable, turn-key, COMPREHENSIVE optician training system was needed.

Good news… You can finally reclaim your lunch break and weekends (and maybe rediscover your kids) instead of sweating over your optician training.

That’s why we created the OptiQuick Rapid Optician Training System

The all-in-one solution to start an optician training program you and your opticians will love using.

T.T. Tyler Thompson, Publisher "Tyler’s Quarterly"

“There is many a doctor out there looking for a way to augment his/her office assistant’s knowledge regarding the challenges of an optician in today’s ECP’s office. And your publication is a nice step in helping them to attain it.”

Optometry Today book review

“This is truly a concise training system containing a wealth of information. It provides the subject matter in an easy to understand and interesting format. Without a doubt it should be of use not only to opticians, but also to optometrists and ophthalmologists who need to train opticians.”

how to become optician

Becoming an optician can be a very rewarding profession. Employers typically include optometrists, ophthalmologists, and retail chains such as LensCrafters. Communication and fine motor skills are a must, the rest can be taught. Most opticians receive on the job training, many times learning from programs such as our OptiQuick Rapid Optician Training Program. However, if you are interested in learning more about your state requirements or pursuing the training needed to become an ABO certified optician, here you will find the steps needed in your pursuit.


Step 1: Visit

The first step is to find out the licensing requirements of your particular state. Some states require you to be licensed through a trade school, however most allow on-the-job training. Keep in mind many times a state’s licensing requirements can be confusing. They may require you be licensed to OWN your own optical boutique, but not if you are employed by one. Essentially in this case, which is by far the most common case, the employee optician is working under the license of the owner. It will be best to actually speak to someone at the following certification / licensing agencies to learn the specifics in your particular state. To find your state’s requirements, visit the website of the Optician Association of America at and click on the “links” tab in the left column. There you will find a link for “state licensing boards”. Clicking on that link will take you to a page which lists every state that requires opticians to be licensed and what they require for licensure. You can also click directly through to your state’s licensing website for more information.

If your state does not require you to be licensed as an employed optician, you may begin your career simply by finding an employer willing to offer on-the-job training, however some prior training such as with the OptiQuick Rapid Optician Training System will be useful to help you get off to a goodstart.

Step 2: Visit is the home of the National Academy of Opticianry. The academy is “an international organization dedicated solely to education and training for ALL opticians.” Even though you may have discovered that in step 1 your state does not require a formal license or education, you could be well served to obtain an optician degree from an accredited trade school. Such schools can provide you with a degree in opticianry in about a year. There are several benefits of obtaining a degree from such a trade school. You will enter the job field with prior hands on training, you will be able to command a higher starting salary, and you will be able to utilize the school’s job placement programs to find better employment than searching on your own. In the rare cases your state requires a licensing test, these programs help you prepare.

To find a list of accredited schools in your area, see our list below. The website offers its own online course for $1,000 in preparation for ABO testing or state licensure (if your state requires that). Go to and click on their link for “Career Progression Program”. If your state does not require you to be licensed, we recommend obtaining on-the-job training from a local optical store before pursuing such coursework, . Such on-the-job training along with self study courses such as our OptiQuick Rapid Optician Training System, we believe is the quickest and most enjoyable way to build confidence and the skills needed to grow in the profession.

Step 3: Visit

A website for opticians with experience looking to become “certified”, also has a wealth of information on the field of opticianry and state requirements. Once you gain on-the-job experience, you can become a “certified” optician through taking the ABO test (certified in fitting eyeglasses) or NCLE test (certification in fitting contact lenses). Although not a requirement for most employed opticians, becoming ABO or NCLE certified certainly is looked upon favorably with employers and can increase your earning potential.
