How do I download my certificates?

Click the green down arrow beside each case to download your certificate. Note: if you require your license number on the printed certificates, you may enter it in the PDF by clicking on the license field and typing it in. When you print your certificate, it will display right where you typed it.
What category of continuing education credits are Optocase modules and how many can I count towards my requirements?
All Optocase cases are approved by The Council on Optometric Practitioner Education (COPE) for a certain number of hours of credit as listed. Note that COPE was created by Association of Regulatory Boards of Optometry (ARBO) to accredit continuing education on behalf of optometric licensing boards.
Because licensing requirements are different in each country and in each state/province, you will need to check with your licensing body to verify how online, COPE-approved online CE credits apply to your licensing situation.
For the United States, some requirements can be seen here: www.arbo.org/ce_req.php
