(PRESS RELEASE) ATLANTA, GA — The Optical Training Institute (OTI) is excited to announce its acquisition of two  respected resources in the world of optical education: OpticianU, known for its OptiQuick rapid optician  training program and the #1 best-selling optician training book on Amazon, “The Optician Training Manual  – 2nd Edition: Simple Steps To Becoming A Great Optician“.  

Brian Diener, director of OTI, commented on the acquisitions, “These are more than just acquisitions; they  are a testament to OTI’s commitment to lead in optical education. Integrating both #1 best-selling book,  ‘The Optician Training Manual’, and OptiQuick into our platform strengthens our pledge to offer top-quality  resources to the optical community.”

Their reputation for quality and dedication to the  profession is unmatched. They are a trusted partner and I’m confident that they are the ideal long-term  stewards for these courses. I look forward to seeing their continued impact on the industry going forward.” 

Beyond enhancing OTI’s content library, these acquisitions accentuate the Optical Training Institute’s  position at the forefront of the optical training landscape.
