About us


BC College of Optics is registered as a post-secondary training institution with British Columbia’s Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB). Additionally, our training facility has been formally accredited since 1998.


In 1984, the predecessor to BC College of Optics was registered and regulated by British Columbia’s Ministry of Education, Apprenticeship Branch. Holding classes in a 600 square foot facility, our school soon outgrew its surroundings and moved to larger premises in 1988.
