Berkeley Optometry offers live, interactive online CE courses for individual purchase starting at $30 per CE hour. These high-quality interactive lectures meet the live, in-person CE requirements of the California State Board of Optometry and COPE through December 31, 2021. For live online events, attendees are able to interact with the speaker and ask questions in real-time via Zoom video conference.

Per COPE’s guidelines through June 30, 2022, post-course tests will not be required in order to receive CE credits for these courses. Our live, online lectures will continue to meet the live CE requirements of the California State Board of Optometry. View our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
