State Board Exams

In order to take the State Board Exam(s), you must first receive approval from the State Licensing Board.  To request approval, you must complete an Application for Approval which is actually the Application for Licensure as an Ophthalmic Dispenser.

Once you have received State Board approval, you may register for either:

The ABO Practical Examination and the NCLE Practical Examination;
The National Commission of State Opticianry Regulatory Boards (NCSORB) National Practical Examination.
