JCAHPO's continuing education (CE) programs are designed to increase the knowledge and skills of ophthalmic medical personnel as they work toward certification or recertification. CE credits are awarded for participation in a wide range of programs and activities including lectures and workshops, independent study, and teaching approved courses. CE credits may be earned through participation in JCAHPO programs as well as independent programs approved for credit by JCAHPO.


JCAHPO Revises Group A/B Credit Categories

JCAHPO is pleased to announce the revision of the Group A/B credit categories. Previously, all approved credits were classified as either Group A or B. Group A credits were based on medical and scientific content that was specific to, but not limited to, the JCAHPO examination content areas. Group B credits were courses related to ophthalmology but not tested in the examination content areas.

As of August 1, 2011 all ophthalmology (eye-care) related topics, regardless of the relation to an examination content area, will now be awarded Group A credit for classroom (lecture), workshops & e-learning courses. COURSES/SEMINARS MUST STILL BE SUBMITTED TO, & PRE-APPROVED BY, JCAHPO’s EDUCATION DEPARTMENT to qualify for CE Credit!

Examples of topics that are NOT eligible for CE Credit include:

  • Completion of Evaluations
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Effective Communications
  • Listening Skills
  • Marketing
  • Merits of Certification
  • Personality Traits
  • Principles of Supervision
  • Product Training
  • Team Building
  • Work-Life Balance
  • Topics not unique to eye-care

The Group A and B credit recertification requirements will remain the same. CME category 1 courses in ophthalmology approved by the AMA or Canadian Medical Association will remain the same as well, and will continue to be awarded B credit based on certification level.
