Continuing Education

Not only an excellent means of staying abreast of technological advances in materials, and sales and fitting techniques, continuing education is required by law for renewal of a North Carolina's optician's license.

Note: a course on NC opticianry law is required of every resident NC optician when changes to the statutes and/or rules have been implemented during the previous year.

The NC State Board of Opticians does not produce or present educational seminars -- it reviews and approves hours applicable to this state's CE laws and rules. For details regarding any planned CE event, please contact the provider organization directly.

Educational entities and/or provider organizations wishing to submit hours for approval may download the CE Seminar Certification Form.

The Board updates the year's Approved CE Events for NC Opticians as events are submitted and approved.
