Accreditation and CE


 SECO makes every effort to secure accreditation for optometrist continuing education courses/workshops as appropriate through: 

  • the Association of Regulatory Boards of Optometry (ARBO), 
  • Council on Optometric Practitioner Education (COPE); the General Optical Council (GOC), Continuing Education and Training (CET);
  • and CE Broker, submitted only for qualifying professionals licensed in the state of Florida.
 SECO does not guarantee that certifying agents will accredit or that licensing authorities will accept accreditation of any course presented during a meeting. Attendees must be familiar with the requirements for any licensing agencies, boards, etc. to which education attendance may be reported.

SECO International will report CE attendance to ARBO for attendees who provide their OE Tracker number when they register to attend. Florida licensed professionals who provide information exactly as it appears on their license will have attendance information submitted to CE Broker.

SECO recommends that attendees be familiar with their licensing requirements. Attendees who fail to comply with attendance requirements during a course will not receive continuing education credit for that course. All optometrist continuing education courses provided by SECO International are strictly monitored to comply with licensing board regulations for accreditation and within The Optometric Guidelines for Independent Continuing Education (ICE).
SECO makes every effort to secure accreditation for ophthalmic professional education courses and learning labs based on accreditation regulations from the appropriate boards:

SECO does not guarantee that the licensing board or certifying organization will accredit any course presented during a meeting. All courses will be listed as pending until final approval is received; it is the attendee’s responsibility to guarantee that courses have been finally approved before attending courses. The attendee is also responsible for obtaining the Verification of Attendance and submitting it to ABO, JCAHPO, NCLE, AOA PARA and the respective state boards to receive credit. SECO will only submit continuing education credits for those with licenses in Florida, if the proper license number is provided during registration.
