Considering giving back to your profession? Becoming an Examiner is a great way to get involved with the College. This is a casual, contract position. The College will provide a daily honorarium as well as reimburse you for expenses related to travel and meals.
The College of Opticians of Ontario (COO) is accepting applications from registered opticians for the role of Examiner.
The entry to practice examinations are offered by the National Alliance of Canadian Optician Regulators (NACOR). The COO recognizes the following examinations:
1. Optical Sciences 1 – Eyeglass Examination
2. Optical Sciences 2 – Advanced Practice Contact Lens Examinations
The National Exams are held several times a year at various locations throughout Ontario. Orientation and training will be provided at exam sessions. Examiners are not required to attend every session.
An Examiner observes the performance of exam candidates in a practical station and records their observations on standardized test sheets. Examiners do not determine whether a candidate passes/fails a section or the examinations, NACOR makes the pass/fail decision.
Applicants for Examiner positions must:
Please complete and submit the Examiner Application form, a resume and three references to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Only those selected for an interview will be contacted. The selection process will include a telephone interview and reference check.
The College of Opticians of Ontario, an equal opportunity employer, is committed to creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment that is reflective of the diversity of the public that we serve. Eligible candidates from equity-deserving groups are encouraged to apply, including Indigenous persons, racialized persons / persons of colour, women, LGBTQ2S+, and persons with disabilities.
