The OCPP curriculum contains much of the same subject matter offered by ophthalmic dispensing school programs, therefore students may be able to receive college credits from some ophthalmic dispensing programs. (Any such credit must be by independent arrangement between the student and the college.) Upon successfully completing the Ophthalmic Career Progression Program, the American Board of Opticianry will grant credit towards its continuing education requirements. Some state licensing boards also grant credit for the OCPP. Students should contact their respective state licensing boards to determine if this type of credit is granted.
