Updated Ophthalmic Career Progression Program Available from NAO

The National Academy of Opticianry has updated it Ophthalmic Career Progression Program text. The text reportedly "very closely follows the American Board of Opticianry (ABO) Task Analoysis, the basis for the National ABO Certification Exam." The text consists of four illustrated volumes, each with an exam. There's also a final exam. NAO also has a fifth volume that focuses on contact lenses.The text was written by three renowned academics in opticianry:
  • Diane F. Drake, LDO, ABOM, FCLSA, FNAO
  • David F. Meldrum, LDO, ABOM, FNAO, and
  • Randall L. Smith, M.S., ABOM, NCLEC, FNAO.

The OCPP is a convenient, affordable home-study, on-the-job training tool for apprenticing opticians. Several states accept it as a viable method to achieve required training and education for licensing and national certification. It is also widely used in states that don't require licensing and certification as a quality, thorough base-line for on-the-job training.
