The new Varilux Xpert certification program from Essilor Academy Canada is designed for eyecare professionals who want in depth knowledge of the Varilux brand, specifications and history in order to be able to demonstrate its value with confidence and thereby grow their sales.

The online course includes 8 hours of classes divided into three modules: Varilux Classics, Varilux series and Varilux Specialized, to be completed in 3 months. Very flexible, it easily adapts to the schedule of eyecare professionals: participants can activate the training in one click at the time of their choice, interrupt it if necessary and resume it just as easily. Upon certification, participants master the technical details and scientific data of all Varilux products and are more confident that they can recommend the right Varilux product to their customers.

“In addition, by becoming a Varilux Xpert,” explains Martin Lespérance, Director-Training & Development at Essilor Canada, “the professional can put forward his expertise in visual health and thus better meet the needs of consumers who always prefer to do business with a person who has advanced knowledge of products and shares it with enthusiasm.”

The Varilux Xpert certification is an addition to Essilor Academy Canada’s training and development program. This initiative allows us to fulfil Essilor’s mission of Improving lives by improving sight, by promoting motivation and passion into learning, maximizing implementation and producing rapid results.
