Welcome to the Optician-Licensed Dispensing, Apprentice Program Site!


This apprenticeship program of study was designed for the working apprentice optician employed by an Eye Care Professional or a business engaged in eye care.

It will help you develop skills necessary to deal effectively with an increasingly complex eye care business environment and aid in developing the skills necessary to pass the Washington State Optician Board Examination: the American Board of Opticianry (ABO) and National Contact Lens Examiners (NCLE) national competency and practical basic examinations are Washington State’s examination requirement for dispensing optician licensure.
Our Goal: Assist in the training of apprentice opticians and promote growth in the industry of eye care through education.
Our Mission: Provide an educational base for persons wanting to enhance or develop their skills as dispensing opticians.

(Currently, Highline College is the only apprentice education program for opticians which is approved by the Washington Sate Department of Labor and Industries.)
