In a joint venture, The Association of British Dispensing Opticians (ABDO) and The Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) are collaborating to host and deliver the RCOphth Refraction Certificate examination. This is one of four examinations that a trainee ophthalmologist takes in order to achieve the FRCOphth. From 2020 ABDO’s National Resource Centre (NRC) in Birmingham will become the permanent home for this examination.

Dylan Costello, Head of Examinations at the RCOphth said of the collaboration that “The NRC proved to a be a natural home for hosting our Refraction Certificate examination. The state of the art venue will enable the RCOphth to continue to be able to deliver a robust examination with the stability that it requires. We are excited to be undertaking this new relationship with the NRC in the development of our exam delivery.”
