Doctor of optometry courses will be COPE or AOA CE Hours* approved unless otherwise noted in the CE schedule. The AOA will offer Continuing Education Examination/Transcript Quality (CEE/TQ) credit at this year's Optometry's Meeting (if applicable, scan the QR code at the end of your CEE/TQ course to register for the examination component; attendees must request the course examination through the QR code process and the exam must be completed within the testing window in order to be claimed).

All optometric staff courses will be approved by the Commission on Paraoptometric Certification (CPC) for the CE credit and are acceptable for certification renewal requirements.

*AOA CE Hours satisfy most state boards’ CE requirements and are respected by many organizations within the practice of optometry; however, it is advised that attendees verify their state board requirements prior to selecting courses to attend.*
