Earn all 20-Hours of Required Continuing Education From Home in 2020
Due to COVID-19, the Florida Board of Opticianry voted to allow Opticians the choice to complete all their continuing education requirements via home-study through December 31, 2020!
What does this mean for you? You have a choice on how to complete your 2019-2020 education requirements.
1. Attend any of POF's Live Conferences
POF has worked diligently to provide Florida Opticians with live education in a safe environment. All live events will practice proper social distancing (1 attendee per 6' classroom table/space), POF will provide face masks and a personal hand sanitizer to every registrant, event hotels will provide daily temperature checks and daily deep cleaning in the education rooms. Due to social distancing requirements, seating is extremely limited to all live events.
