The Presentation Theater courses located within the exhibit hall (Optometry’s Marketplace) are free and participation is granted on a first come, first served basis. You cannot reserve a spot, but you can receive credit for attending official continuing education courses and your Verification of Attendance will note your participation.
If you are licensed in a state that requires CE Broker such as FL, SC, or TX, the courses noted as eligible for credit will automatically be reported to CE Broker. You must include your Florida, South Carolina, or Texas license number during the registration process in order for your credit to be reported to CE Broker.

CE can be found in the exhibit hall in the Presentation Theaters, and the NAO Lounge. There is no pre-registration for courses in the exhibit hall, and they are first come first served.
50 minutes of class time constitutes one hour of credit. Attendees are allowed a 10-minute break per a one-hour accredited course. If attendees arrive 10 minutes after the course begins or take a break longer than 10 minutes during the course, they will not receive credit. SECO is required to follow these policies mandated by accrediting agencies.
