Q: Can I register on-site?

Q: How do I get verification of CE credit for my attendance?
A: Every year, we aim to deploy individual CE Certificates to all of our attendees reflecting the courses and credit hours they each attended within two weeks of the conclusion of the conference. The official document is approved by the various crediting bodies and lists all the courses for which you were scanned, including course titles, instructors' names, number of credits awarded and approval numbers for COPE and the Florida Board of Optometry/Opticianry. We appreciate your patience and understanding that our team must process upwards of 400 attendees' credits and that this process takes some time post-event.
