The Australasian College of Optical Dispensing (ACOD) has officially partnered with the University of Canberra’s Discipline of Optometry to deliver the full Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing HLT47815. The course will be delivered in 2019/20 to students employed in the Canberra area and surrounds. All workshops will be held at the training rooms of the University of Canberra’s Discipline of Optometry in Bruce.
ACOD director Chedy Kalach believes this is the first time students will be able to complete the full Certificate IV in Optical Dispensing HLT47815 without having to leave the ACT.

Additionally, ACT Government traineeships are now available to students of optical dispensing enrolled with ACOD. This means that most students who qualify for the traineeship (subject to the student’s background as ascertained from a pre-assessment process), will pay an enrolment fee capped at AU$1000, employers may qualify for incentives of up to $4000, and students may also qualify for $300 upon course completion.
Commences July 2019
ACOD offers a 12 month program, which includes five workshops of three days each, from Monday to Wednesday, 9–5pm each day. The workshops are spread throughout the one year course, with the first ACT course scheduled for 15–17 July 15.
Workshops two to five will take place in September and November this year, then March and May, 2020.
Enrolment via the ACOD website is easy and learning materials are usually available within one day of registering, enabling students maximum time to prepare for their first workshop.
