Don’t miss out on CE credits !!!

Time is running to complete the national competency survey.    The survey has been extended until January 6th.

You will receive continuing education credits for completing this survey. Continuing education credits be awarded based on what areas you are licensed for, as this will determine what areas of the survey you complete and how much time it will take you to complete.

Continuing education credits for completing the survey will be:

  • Licensed for eyeglasses – 2 EC
  • Licensed for eyeglasses and contact lenses – 3 EC
  • Licensed for eyeglasses and refracting – 3 EC
  • Licensed for eyeglasses, contact lenses and refracting – 4 EC


Everyone completing the survey will also have their name entered into a draw for a chance to win one of five $100.00 Visa gift cards.

How will I receive my continuing education credits?

When you complete and submit the survey an electronic notice will be displayed confirming your survey was submitted.  Approximately two weeks after the survey closing date you will receive an email from NACOR confirming how many CE credits you were awarded.

Your provincial regulatory board will also receive notice from NACOR confirming this information.

My continuing education cycle ends on December 31st.  Will my province still accept my credits even though they will not receive confirmation of my participation in the survey until mid-January?

Yes.  Your provincial regulatory board will still accept these credits for your 2018 CE cycle.

Who do I contact if I have problems with the survey?

Do I have to provide my name and contact information on the survey?
