Optical Sciences - Ophthalmic Assistant
The non-credit Ophthalmic Assistant Certificate Course is an introductory-level course intended for those who want to work as Ophthalmic Assistants in a private Ophthalmologist or Optometrist's office, clinic or hospital.
In this computer-based course, students access course material using the e-learning system Moodle.
Students must complete eight outcomes. At the end of each outcome, there is an assessment, which students submit online. These assessments measure students' understanding of key terms, topics and learning objectives.
Student learning is also measured through scheduled, printed mid-term and final exams administered to students living within 175 kilometres of NAIT's Main Campus in Edmonton, Alberta. Students living further away write their examinations in a supervised setting closer to home.
