How Does Work?

While transitioning to our new software, POF temporarily made its online CE courses available by phone or email request. Many opticians took advantage of the course offerings during that brief time period, and we thank you all for your patience while we upgraded our system.

To order courses, you will need to create a new login to register and pay. Your old password will not work. Your email address is your user name and we created a temporary password for all licensed opticians and apprentices that we have in our system.

To access online CE, your new temporary password uses your Florida license number.   Opticians, your temporary password is formatted like this: DO####AA (replace the #### with your 3 or 4 digit license number)   Apprentices, use DA####AA instead.

If you are a first-time user, set up your own password-protected account by selecting “Sign up for an account”. You will create a user-name and gain access to our online courses by providing your name, address, and Florida license number. After you have created an account, select “Log in now” to choose your course(s). Now you're ready to purchase the course you need, complete the course exam, and receive a certificate of completion. It's that simple!
