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
All COPE-certified continuing education courses have a period of validity. In the case of online learning courses, typically 3 years.
When a case expires it will be temporarily inaccessible while it undergoes a content review, update, and subsequent re-certification. Once re-certified, the course will be available again.
If you have purchased a case and do not complete the quiz portion before the expiry, you will be unable to complete the course until the update is complete. Once updated, you will gain access to the revised version. If you are not satisfied, please contact us to discuss a refund or a substitution.
