CE Credit Guidelines
Attendees receive CE credit when they:
1. Login with an identifiable name and/or email (the same as was used for registration)
2. Are admitted by the moderators - please login 5-10 minutes prior to the lecture
3. Stay logged in for at 50 instructional minutes per 1 CE hour lecture; 100 instructional minutes for 2 CE hour lecture; 150 instructional minutes for 3 CE hour lecture; or 200 instructional minutes for 4 CE hour lecture (not including breaks).

*Note: If you were disconnected and must log back in, your re-login time will be included in the total login duration.

**Our high-quality interactive lectures meet the live-in person CE requirements of the California State Board of Optometry. All attendees that do not require COPE accreditation for courses should verify with their state board if the webinar will count towards live CE credit. Partial attendance of a COPE course does not count towards COPE CE.

CE Letters will be emailed within two weeks after the lecture. Please add optoce@berkeley.edu to your email contacts/safe senders list in order to make sure that the email with your certificate does not go to your spam folder.

Viewer’s Guidelines
1. Your password is automatically incorporated into your unique link. Although you may not be asked for a password, your name, email, and log-in time will be noted by Zoom once you have entered and will automatically confirm your CE attendance. Please do not confirm your attendance in the Chat Field.
2. All participants will be muted upon entry and will remain muted during the lecture. You may ask a question directly in the Chat Field during the lecture. The faculty moderator will either answer the question or forward it to the speaker.
3. To enlarge the speaker image, try to ‘grab and drag’ the corner of the image with your cursor.
4. There may be times when the presented image is pixelated. That is due to Zoom’s limited 360p definition and the busy servers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our goal is to improve the quality for future events.
5. Please note that all lectures will start promptly on time and will be either 50 or 100 total instructional minutes, depending on the lecture.
