However, with a minimum guarantee of six persons, any course or review can be taught either in your clinic or at another facility in your area. If you cannot attend a course in person, then earning credits by correspondence is a viable option. Credits by correspondence are available in all states for all ophthalmic personnel, and in particular for licensed or certified opticians. (Please check with your licensing or certifying agency to see if you are approved to receive continuing education by correspondence).
