Promoting Your Professional Status

You've got it -- flaunt it! Making the general public and your customers or patients aware of the distinction of your certification works to your advantage. Here are a few ways to promote your distinction as a certified optician or contact lens technician:

  • Always display your certificate prominently at your work place.
  • Wear your ABO or NCLE certification lapel pin at work.
  • Use your ABO or NCLE certified logos on your business cards, letterhead, all and displays.
  • Use your designations (ABOC, ABOC-AC, ABOM or NCLEC, NCLE-AC, NCLEM) after your name or signature on letters, business cards and when you register for conventions and conferences. (If you register with the designations after your name they will also appear on your convention badge.)
