The AOA Paraoptometric Section's Self-Study Course for Paraoptometric Assistants and Technicians, Revised 3rd Edition helps prepare the certified paraoptometric to sit for the certified assistant (CPOA) or certified technician (CPOT) exam. The course contains 19 chapters, each of which comes in booklet form for convenient study. Each individual booklet contains review questions to evaluate knowledge comprehension and retention.
Formerly titled Self-Study Course for Paraoptometric Certification
The Self-Assessment Examination includes 350 multiple-choice questions on information covered in the Self-Study Course, and may be completed in a convenient timeframe. After completion, you can mail the self-assessment examination to the Paraoptometric Section office in St. Louis for grading. If you answer 249 questions correctly, you will receive 12 hours of continuing education credit and a certificate of achievement. Once a paraoptometric is certified at any level, he or she must obtain 18 hours of approved CE credit to maintain certification designation. This is truly a great resource for training or studying.
Flash cards are an effective tool for testing knowledge comprehension and retention, and by popular request, the questions featured in the Self-Assessment Exam are now also available in flash card form. We have developed three sets of cards, divided by subject area, to cover the material tested on both of the higher-level exams. Each set includes approximately 100 questions, and there is a bonus set of 50 additional flash cards that comes with a purchase of all three sets of CPOA/CPOT flash cards.
