Continuing Education Courses (CECs)

This continuing education program has been created and designed to provide ophthalmic professionals and opticianry supervisors’ important information regarding professional topics pertaining to a broad range of subject matter.  At this time no announcement has been made by the Department of Health concerning in-person continuing education sessions.  Once that information is released, we will notify you whether or not the classes will be presented in Zoom format.  Please remain flexible.  You will notice an increase in CE fees for 2022.  We have been able to hold the cost down for well over the past decade.  Unfortunately, this year increased overhead costs forced an increase.  Thanks for your past support.

COST:  $99.00 for eight hours of CE credit.

($125 if received less than three days prior to program)
