Front Desk / Receptionist
Who should take this course?
If you are an ophthalmic administrator, this course will be helpful when training an employee with little or no experience as an eye care receptionist. The advantage of this course is that the trainee receives basic instruction on their own time, without the need for supervision. All that is needed is a computer with internet access. There are three quizzes that the trainee must pass in order to receive a certificate of completion. A complete description of the course follows below.
If you have no previous experience, and you are applying for a job as a receptionist / front desk person in an eye care office, this course will give you basic instruction that will give you a head start. This course will provide you with a certificate of completion that may be of benefit to you in the job application/interview process.
This course includes the "Telephone Skills for the Eyecare Office" course, which has it's own certificate of completion. For more information on the telephone skills course, click here (to return to this page, close the new window).
