OptiBlocks Education Committee is a committee dedicated to Student education within ADONZ. It was created to help liaise with our education providers. Education is delivered via a Distance Learning Course for trainee dispensing opticians and which also incorporates workshop blocks to facilitate hands on learning, giving students an opportunity to consolidate their theoretical studies with practical laboratory sessions and lectures. They work closely with current education provider ACOD. Students are able to qualify for New Zealand registration, and for various honours qualifications, and seek to promote and further the interests of qualified dispensing opticians.
