Is the CE COPE approved?

COPE approval benefits meeting attendees by guaranteeing that courses attended at the meeting will qualify for continuing education credit in most states. It is advised that attendees check with their state board to clarify any special conditions attached to the acceptance. The Academy’s lectures, workshops, symposia, special sessions, Scientific Program paper sessions and Residents Day paper session are COPE approved.

How will I receive my CE certificate?

Following the meeting, a link will be emailed to you to print your CE certificate at your leisure. The email address you provided when registering will be used.

How will my credits be transferred to the OE Tracker database?

After the meeting, the credits for those doctors who had provided their OE Tracker numbers will be sent to ARBO, and the data will be uploaded to their records at ARBO.

Can I get CE credit for paper and poster sessions?

Yes! Credit can be earned in 15 minute increments.

The Best in Optometric Continuing Education

The Academy is pleased to present four days of quality enrichment and education in a safe and socially distanced venue at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. The American Academy of Optometry is accredited by COPE to provide continuing education to optometrists.

Since we will be able to meet in Boston, we’re proud to present the return of workshops, in addition to the robust line up of lectures, including the popular ACE courses, Section and SIG Symposia, and scientific program papers and posters.

To begin planning your Academy 2021 Boston experience, review the Education Grid now.

As a reminder, workshops and ACE courses require an additional fee and must be purchased at the time of registration. While you can add these two options at a later date, they sell out fast, so you’re encouraged to secure your spot early.
