We are offering a 20 hr prepaid package!

$180 by credit card online!

Also keep in mind the new renewal process
that Florida state board will start on January 1st 2013 and will
be in effect for renewal December 2014
This will affect all Opticians!
All license renewals will require proof of hours!
This means if your hours are not in cebroker for them
to verify, you will be required to show them your certificates.
Lets examine that statement carefully, When you attend classes, we the provider are allowed 90 days to input
the completed hours into cebroker, and during a busy 'season' maybe a bit longer. (like the end of 2014 busy)
This means if you wait until October/November of 2014 to take or finish your hours, it will be your responsibility
to show your proof of certificates of attendance. Now this gets complicated by homestudy hours being
taken during summer/fall of 2014 as you may be able to see the problems there.
So...PLEASE take your hours early!!!!
Remember our membership includes all the hours required by your State Board at no extra charge, ever!
