Why are we discontinuing hosting JCAHPO CE credit courses?

JCAHPO has raised by a whopping 66% the fees that eyetec.net must pay to present continuing education courses (CE courses). We have to pay the fees up front in one lump sum for the ability to host courses for a period of 2 years. Because of the fee increases, it is no longer certain that we will be able to cover the cost by collecting course fees over the 2 year period. We could significantly raise the fees that we charge, but simple economics suggests that fewer people will take the courses with an increase in the fees charged. We also believe that CE courses should be reasonably priced, therefore these JCAHPO fee increases are forcing us out as a host of CE courses. 

What this means to you:

If you need JCAHPO CE credits:  You can take advantage of our low CE course fee of $10/credit hour by signing up for courses before Jan. 31, 2022. You will have until March 7, 2022 to complete the courses.

Keep in mind that you cannot repeat a CE credit course within a given certification period. In other words, you cannot claim the same course twice during a certification period. You can check which courses you have taken, and which dates you took them, by going to your "My CE Credits" page after login. There is a link to this page on the "courses" tab on the top menu bar.
