Laws, rules, and ethics courses

At licensure, every applicant must complete the Oregon laws & administrative rules exam administered through NBEO and pass with a score of 80 or better. Once completed, send your scores to the Board for inclusion with your other license application materials.

Oregon law requires licensees to complete a one hour law or ethics course every other year. The COPE category of "Ethics" (EJ) is not approved unless otherwise approved by the Board. 

Another way to earn law or ethics credit is by attending at least 1 hour of an Oregon Board of Optometry Board meeting. See meeting dates for more information.
