July 1, 2022: COPE's NEW Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education

2023 COPE New Synchronous and Asynchronous Course Formats.

The NJSOP hosts multiple live webinars and in-person programs each year in addition to offering over 30 hours of on-demand CE via our online CE portal. Members save up to 150% on registration fees!

Snow School is a family-focused event held at Kalahari Resort in the Poconos each January. Registrants have the chance to earn a days-worth of continuing education credit before they meet their family in the indoor waterpark, spa, or on-site restaurants.

Spring CE is held either virtually or onsite in Central New Jersey. The great education and exhibit hall typically draw a crowd of over 100 ODs.

Summer CE takes place at The Breakers on the Ocean in Spring Lake, NJ. This early July CE opportunity is limited to 100 ODs and features our Diamond-level partners, only. Attendees enjoy a view of the beach from the Breaker’s wrap around front porch during breaks and lunch.

Therapy by the Sea is the NJSOP’s largest annual event held in Atlantic City, NJ in the fall. Therapy by the Sea (TBTS) offers three days of continuing education, a large exhibit hall, and a variety of social events for colleagues and friends to reconnect. Past TBTS conferences have offered hands-on workshops for both optometric physicians and paraoptometrics, making this event a big draw for both local ODs and colleagues from around the country.

Managed Care Seminar rounds out the year in December and focuses on practice management. This event is also home to the NJSOP’s annual General Membership Meeting.
