LOS ANGELES, Feb. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In today's unfortunate job market, even college graduates are finding it difficult to land good jobs in their field of study. This is why trade schools in Los Angeles are proving to be an indispensable tool for students who seek employment in a specialized field, but don't have the time, resources, or need to attend four-year institutions. One of the premier vocational schools in Los Angeles is the Coast Career Institute, an educational institution providing a number of fast tracked specialized programs, including an Optical Dispensing Technician program.
Coast Career Institute's Optical Dispensing Technician program gives students everything they need to become proficient, skilled, and ready to take on high paying jobs in optical dispensing/laboratory facilities. The Optical Dispensing Technician program includes thorough coursework that covers prisms and light, eye anatomy, optical instruments, dispensing theory, frame fitting theory, lens and service availability, contact lenses, pathology of the eye and more. It also prepares students for ABO certification. Upon completion of this program, students are qualified to attain employment in a variety of settings, such as optometrist and ophthalmologist offices, department stores, and health and personal care stores. A mixture of lectures and hands-on education at the Coast Career college in Los Angeles ensures that students finish the program with the confidence and knowledge to succeed.
The Optical Dispensing program at Coast Career Institute is especially popular due to the high demand for educated individuals in this field of study. As a matter of fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the "employment of dispensing opticians is expected to grow about as fast as average for all occupations through 2018, as the population ages and demand for corrective lenses increases", and that "very good job prospects are expected" (Bureau of Labor Statistics). Located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the Coast Career Institute is accessible from all reaches of the LA metropolitan area, and the campus's intimate learning atmosphere is ideal for making new friends and acquaintances.
