Announcement from the California State Board of Optometry

Effective May 2020, California licensed optometrists may complete all 30 hours of required Live Continuing Education via online interactive programming. This policy has been extended indefinitely.

For optometrists practicing outside of California, COPE has announced that all modifications to their rules regarding online platforming have ended as of December 31, 2021. Unless specified by the individual State Board, all online continuing education will count toward distance learning. Please check your State Board's website for updates on the latest rules and regulations regarding online education and live credits.

To remain informed on the latest policy changes, please check back here at a later date.

Announcement About Administering the COVID-19 Vaccine

The California Department of Consumer Affairs has approved a public health emergency waiver that will allow Doctors of Optometry to administer the COVID-19 vaccination to persons 16 years of age or older. In order to become eligible, ODs must complete both APhA's Pharmacy-Based Immunization Delivery Certificate Program, as well as the California Department of Public Health's free COVID-19 Training Program for Non-Traditional Vaccinators.
