Is Your Practice 100% Certified?

The CPC is conducting a survey to locate optometric offices that have 100% certified paraoptometric staff. The CPC would like to recognize optometrists who support the certification program by encouraging their staff to become trained and certified.

Following verification, offices with 100% CPC certified staff will be recognized in the AOA News and the CPC newsletter as well as press releases to the appropriate state optometric association for publication in their newsletters. The CPC will also provide congratulatory certificates suitable for framing to offices that meet the 100% certification standard.

Please take a few moments to complete the survey form. Survey forms can be mailed or faxed to the CPC Office. Please provide the names of all current staff who are certified as paraoptometrics along with their certification level. If you have staff at more than one location, please submit a survey for each location.
