Opticians Association of Massachusetts

Board of Registration of Dispensing Opticians (BOR)

Although often confused by opticians in Massachusetts, the OAM and the BOR are completely different entities. It is the BOR that regulates continuing education requirements and ensures compliance with state statutes as stated in the mass.gov web page description:

“The Board of Registration of Dispensing Opticians protects the public through regulation of the practice by testing candidates and licensing those who are qualified, insuring compliance with state statutes and the Board's rules and regulations, and conducting hearings and facilitating resolutions to consumer complaints. The Board manages apprenticeship training programs, approves educational standards for school-based opticianry programs, and monitors the continuing education requirements of licensees. The Board also works with other states' opticianry boards and professional organizations in furthering the qualifications of opticians.”
