This is why we are proud to offer our paid Ophthalmic Apprenticeship Program this spring for anyone who wants to learn more about becoming an Ophthalmic Imaging Technician or Ophthalmic Assistant.

What is the Ophthalmic Apprenticeship Program?

CEENTA's ophthalmic apprenticeship program provides a gateway looking to work in the eye care field as an assistant or technician. As a part of the program, apprentices will complete 12 weeks of didactic and skill learning followed by 12 weeks of clinical rotations in various subspecialties. Weekly quizzes and tests are administered along with frequent skill competency checks to ensure quality learning.

What candidates are considered for the Ophthalmic Apprenticeship Program?

This program is intended for candidates who truly want to explore the field of eye care, so new apprentices undergo a thorough vetting process before taking the program. Beyond interviews with CEENTA Operations Managers and our manager of ophthalmic clinical services, the candidate is required to take an entrance exam to determine eligibility. Yet the right candidates are more than just capable of acing interviews and exams. The best candidates are those who are ready to learn new skills, work under pressure in a fast-paced environment, and think critically when caring for patients.

CEENTA’s program is perfect for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of eye care, but it can also lead to a rewarding career in healthcare, certification that is recognized internationally, and unlimited professional opportunities. Not only that, but you can get paid in the process!
