Become a COPE Reviewer

Become One of a Select Few!

As a practicing optometrist, please consider becoming a certified reviewer of courses submitted for COPE qualification. Your valuable contribution to the COPE review process will promote fair and uniform course evaluations to ensure all participating licensing boards that COPE CE is of the highest quality and is independent of commercial interests. In the end, these quality control measures will benefit practitioners in your state as well as the public that you serve.

What do I need to do to become certified?

  • You must complete and submit a Course Reviewer Questionnaire.
  • You must be endorsed by your optometry board; this endorsement will be secured by ARBO once you volunteer.
  • Once endorsed, you will receive instructions to complete the online COPE reviewer training that consists of six 5-20 minute self-paced educational modules followed by a short self-assessment.
  • Once the training has been successfully completed, you will receive your congratulatory packet of information, including a certificate suitable for framing and a lapel pin.

How much time will this take from my already busy schedule?

COPE reviewers are not requested to review more than two courses at any given time. The review of a course typically takes 30 to 60 minutes. Please consider volunteering and contributing to the COPE review process.
