Virtual attendees will need to be present during the scheduled live-stream course. They will have access to the speakers via the Q&A and Chat functions, and that direct real-time access is what qualifies these courses to be accepted as “live CE” by COPE. We have a separate initiative for OD’s that want online learning options that can be accessed throughout the year whenever the learner wants to log in. That platform is called SECO University secouniversity.com, and it has many COPE accredited CE sessions available on demand. Those qualify as distance or enduring CE, not live. If you registered for a virtual “Congress” package, an annual subscription to SECO University is included.
