Of the 20 required hours, a maximum of 5 may be obtained out-of-classroom. To access our more than 30 hours of quality, home-study courses simply go to our online partner: www.cebroker.com. Once there, search for Optician...Florida...and Optical Seminars.
The classes are only $10 per credit hour and your completion is immediately reported to the state.
Currently available home study classes include:
Members of Optical Seminars, and everyone who attends a live, Optical Seminars event receives two FREE home study hours for every day they attend. This means for every 8-hour day you attend, you actually receive 10 hours of continuing education! For a two-day seminar, the 16 hours become 20 hours. This is legal and perfectly acceptable, provided you do not complete the home study class on the same day you attend live classes. What it allows you to do is obtain all 20 required hours in only two days.
(By the way: If you are a member of Optical Seminars you may attend all in-classroom hours if you prefer.)
