Although they have slightly different names, all of the diploma programs have key aspects in common. They all have a hands-on portion, giving you the opportunity to develop practical skills. They also all offer eyeglass and contact lens training. Finally, they all require you to write the NACOR exam. Accreditation for entry to practice Opticianry programs are performed by Accreditation Canada.
