It was a case of celebrations all round for a member of the team from Specsavers Clevedon as she passed her Dispensing Optician (DO) qualification.

Chrissie Gravelll, who has worked at the store for five years, has successfully passed the DO fast track course which runs for two years.

A combination of theory and practical assessments, the qualification now allows Chrissie to dispense to children as well as modify prescriptions.

Putting learnings into practice

Chrissie said: ‘After I completed my Cert 4, I knew I wanted to do the DO course.

‘It was a little bit stressful trying to manage alongside working but I was really organised and that definitely helped. I’m now looking forward to putting what I’ve learnt into practice.’
