According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the older population in 2030 is projected to be twice as large as in 2000, growing from 35 million to 72 million and representing nearly 20 percent of the total U.S. population. According to the American Optometric Association’s (AOA), 2014 American Eye-Q® consumer survey: 78 percent of adults ages 55 or older report experiencing some vision loss. Upon successful completion of Charter College’s 10-month Optical Technician certificate program, students will be prepared to seek employment as a dispensing optician, optical technician, lab technician or contact lens fitter, with a curriculum that encompasses: 
  • Ocular emergencies
  • Methods of medication delivery to the eye
  • Diseases of the eye
  • Prescription analysis
  • Theory and application of ophthalmic lenses
  • Optical office administration
Job prospects are also strong for veterinary assistants, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipating a four percent increase in projected job openings by 2022 for California and 10 percent overall. The 10-month Certificate in Veterinary Assistant program provides training in the technical skills and work habits required to seek an entry-level position as a veterinary assistant.
 
“The world is constantly changing,” said Vaja. “So we’re always working together to create new programs to respond to our students, the economy and the marketplace as they continue to evolve.”
