Accreditation Status Updates

CE Approvals

SECO International will not be responsible for courses that have not received accreditation. Do not assume that the courses you registered for will be approved.

Course credit depends on the attendance policies of the accrediting agencies.

Your badge bar code will have all your registered courses embedded in it. Your badge is required for admittance to each course.

A verification of course attendance letter can be accessed online. Please submit this letter to your state board / national accreditation agency for license renewal.

SECO 2018 courses will be submitted to ABO, NCLE, COPE, AOA Paraoptometric Commission, Florida CE Broker and select State Boards of Opticianry for consideration of educational credit approval. For specific State Board of Optometry license rules and regulations pertaining to the COPE acceptance, SECO International recommends contacting your State Board directly. COPE approved courses are accredited in Canada.

The “pending education approval” courses listed are to serve as a guide to assist you with your course selections. These course listings are being submitted to the specified accrediting agencies for consideration of approval – if the course is NOT listed, it is NOT being submitted. Because courses fill up quickly, SECO International recommends you register early to secure your seat. Remember you always have the opportunity to change a course selection after you have registered by logging in to your account.

Course approvals will be updated periodically as approvals are received from the accrediting agencies. Please check back to see if currently “pending” courses have been approved. Please contact SECO International at 770-451-8206 with any education accreditation questions.

Note:  Optometrists and Opticians licensed in Florida who want courses to be submitted to CE Broker must provide their license # when registering for courses.

Note: All Optometrists are required to provide their ARBO/OE Tracker # for COPE when registering for courses. Courses will not be submitted without this number.
