Applications have now opened for the Scotland Level 5 and 7 Certificates in Optical Care.

Both courses receive generous funding from NES Optometry, so employers need only pay £200 (Level 5) or £250 (level 7) per person, with everything they need included in this small fee, which has been kept the same for yet another year.

Places are strictly limited on a first-come-first-served basis.

About the Courses

These courses have been specially designed to give optical assistants the necessary skills and knowledge to provide the best possible care to every patient.

Level 5 is an entry-level qualification, ideal for those who have not studied for a significant length of time, or for those that need a gentle introduction into the world of learning.

Our Level 7 course is slightly more challenging and may be progressed to upon passing Level 5. This is suited to those who have been in optics for at least a year.

Applications can be made online at
