Our first year eyeglass students and second year contact lens students work on lab projects for approximately 240 hours per year, in a supervised, state of the art lab. The lab classes consist of demonstrations, lectures and related assignments, in addition to practical experience in the retail Vision Centre
Practicum sites off campus have to be approved by our faculty, and all practicum supervisors must complete a training course to qualify. These sites are supervised by our faculty through regular visits. Students often get hired by their practicum placement, or at very least can obtain a work reference for future employment.
