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! This is legal and perfectly acceptable, provided you do not complete the home study class on the same day you attend live classes. 

(By the way: If you are a member of Optical Seminars you may attend all in-classroom hours if you prefer.)
