What Students Say About OTI

When I studied for my ABO exam, I used the ABO exam preparation course from Optical Training Institute and I was able to pass the first time I took the test. So, when I decided to start preparing for the NCLE exam, I didn’t hesitate to purchase the test preparation course.

I've been an optician for several years and [The Optician Development Program] was well written. I've taken many optical courses and this was the first one where I wasn't bored. You guys did a great job!
