When I sign up for more than one online course do I have to complete them all at once or can I come back to them as often as I need to?
When you order a course you establish an account at the same time. This means you can return to the course material as often as you like. In fact, even after you have completed a course the course content remains available to you for future reference.
What happens if I don’t pass a test on the first attempt?
After submitting a test, the program tells you what your grade was and which questions you may have missed. If you don’t pass it the first time. you can take the test again at no additional charge. If you still don’t pass it on the second attempt you can email opticaltraining.com and we will post a different course for you to take at no additional charge.
Once I complete a course do I need to submit it to the ABO/NCLE or does opticaltraining.com do it for me ?
Opticaltraining.com submits monthly reports to the ABO/NCLE which includes a record of all online courses completed during the previous month. This means you don’t have to submit your certificates to the ABO/NCLE, we do it for you. Please note- In November we report completed courses bi-monthly and in December we report the completed courses weekly.
