Paraoptometrics can get CE credits on

hcwAccording to the American Optometric Association website,, certified paraoptometrics (CPO), certified paraoptometric assistants (CPOA), and certified paraoptometric technicians (CPOT) can now use up to 9 JCAHPO approved CE credits toward certification and recertification. A total of 18 credits is needed for recertification and at least 9 credits must be CPC approved. The website provides JCAHPO approved CE courses.

Here is a quote from the website:

“The CPC CE approval requirement of eighteen hours of continuing education is in effect. Beginning with the 2013 certification renewal, paraoptometrics will be required to submit a minimum of nine hours of education that has been approved by CPC; the remaining nine credits may be a combination of education that has received approval from ABO, NCLE, JCAHPO, or COPE.”
