Step 1: Determine your eligibility.

1. You must be employed at least 2,000 hours (one-year full-time equivalent) as a COA®, under ophthalmologic supervision within 24 months (two-years) prior to submitting your application.

2. You must earn 12 JCAHPO Group A credits within the 12 months (one-year) prior to submitting your exam application.

The Ophthalmic Technician Exam Prep Course from eyetec.net includes 12 CE credits (a $120 value). If you need the credits, then the course prep course only costs you $30 when you subtract the $120 from the course fee of $150.

3. You must maintain certification as a COA while pursuing COT certification.

Quoting Cassy:
I was just wondering about the on campus COT classes! How long is it, what are the hours and does it have hands on skills. Yes I am a COA but feel like I lack some training.


Hi Cassy,
Here is a list of schools that offer a COT program. Since you are already a COA, the most cost effective way to become a COT is to study for and take the COT exam.
